    Skybox Security

    For any customer that has a complex network environment spanning globally, skybox helps manage firewall policy compliance for many vendors quite easy. It has a variety of security and network vendors that it is compatible with in its database.

    Pros

    Check Point Quantum Smart-1

    • Centralized Database

    • Securely connects to each device

    Skybox Security

    • Skybox manages compliance for firewalls better than we have seen with other tools.
    • Skybox integrates into standard change management tools so change control can flow through Skybox and assist with all decisions to implement a change.
    • The Skybox network map is more detailed than other management tools showing us paths other tools didn't find.

    Cons

    Check Point Quantum Smart-1

    • Not many
    • Expensive though comparatively lately these devices have stayed fairly consistent while other vendors have increased greatly and are catching up.
    • Support is limited, though this can be an advantage because of the 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.

    It is user friendly and quite easy to use. It centralizes all info in one portal and generates good reports to help you visualize and assess your change management decision

    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.

    Return on Investment

    Check Point Quantum Smart-1

    • Hardware is very solid so time for maintenance is extremely limited.
    • Patching is limited due to the strength of the code releases also time for maintenance is extremely limited
    • Annually reoccurring costs for licenses can be expensive
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
