The Skybox Platform reduces the risk of a significant data breach

To identify and mitigate vulnerability exposures, you need complete visibility into your entire environment and the tools to plan, implement and maintain a strong security posture. With the Skybox Security Posture Management Platform, you can analyze and validate the security configurations of enterprise, cloud, and OT environments and gain a complete picture of your attack surface. Your network and security teams can accurately measure risk, implement the best remediation solutions, and optimize security policies, actions, and change processes across all environments.

  • Significantly reduce exposure to data breaches resulting from internal and external threat actors.
  • Better prioritize and understand critical vulnerabilities while addressing compliance concerns on a global enterprise scale.
  • Through increased visibility, act on critical items quicker across IT and OT functions
  • Utilize a consistent framework for prioritizing exposed vulnerabilities; create internal governance processes to centrally review and manage threats across IT and OT environments.

It was like the Wild West. We have thousands upon thousands or hundreds of thousands of vulnerabilities that show up in scans. What Skybox does is look at vulnerabilities in the context of all the other things in the network to produce a risk assessment and that’s what allows us to prioritize the vulnerabilities that need to be fixed.”

The Skybox platform increases audit and compliance efficiencies

Budget pressure, increased reporting requirements, changing regulatory requirements, changing network configurations, legacy processes, and more make it difficult to pass audits and maintain compliance. To understand your compliance status, you need complete visibility into digital environments and the tools to continuously comply with applicable regulations. The Skybox Security Posture Management Platform gathers information about security status from enterprise, cloud, and OT environments and evaluates them against your compliance frameworks. Data analysis and automation help you remediate vulnerabilities, automate change management and prepare customized reports.

  • Significantly improve the end-to-end time required to manage audit and compliance activities.
  • Improve data and decrease compliance violations and human errors
  • Decrease their costs for external audits and time spent internally on compliance.
  • Address increasing workload due to regulatory requirements through streamlined and automated processes

The IT team, they’re spending a lot less time on the audit than they used to because they used to handwrite a report and try and come up with explanations. Now, they can just take the information from Skybox and say, here’s the proof, and that’s tracked on a regular basis”

Save money through security stack consolidation

On average organizations have upward of 75 security technologies in their environment; however, they haven’t realized the full benefit of these solutions. Despite investment in many tools, organizations are challenged to optimize all of their technologies, controls, and people resources. The Skybox platform aggregates and centralizes complete sets of data that reflect the security controls and network configurations across all domains, allowing you to visualize and gain full context and understanding of your attack surface.

  • Identify solutions that are not fully optimized and in some cases, are no longer necessary
  • Reevaluate your security stack; decommission or downgrade unnecessary regional or enterprise tools related to vulnerability, firewall, network policy management, and reporting and analytics toolsets.
  • Unlocking value through efficiencies and insights across your current security stack.
  • Re-evaluate end-to-end processes for their teams and driving efficiencies.
