Skybox Security

  • User experience. On the first approach, it's not the simplest tool that I have ever used.
  • Web-based console. In my honest opinion it's very important [to have] this type of functionality to extend the use of Skybox.
  • Too many updates of the product.

      Skybox Security

      The support team needs to be improved especially in their response and awareness about recent bugs in their solution. For example, sometimes they are not aware about how to integrate specific vendors like Microsoft Azure and they still don't have answers to it until now.

      Alternatives Considered

      AlgoSec

      Algosec has multi vendor support including cisco aci, nsx, aws and azure security groups. While most other vendors are lacking in the spectrum of the vendors. The ROI is best on this product.

      Skybox Security

      • Overall ROI is good as this product is an augmentation for us but we already have a mature security program with an experienced security team so the ROI is high.
