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.

Skybox Security

We have used FireMon Security initially but were never satisfied as FireMon was less efficient than Skybox. Skybox is a good substitute for any of such software. At a very reasonable cost, it provides an Outstanding vulnerability control feature along with network mapping and reporting. All these features are less likely to be found in any other software of this kind altogether.

Return on Investment

Cisco TrustSec

  • Reduction in IT operational costs

Skybox Security

  • Reduces cost in terms of time and money to spend in remediation activity.
  • Improve the network topology and then it's possibile to reduce cost of network/security appliances where they're not necessary.
  • The cost of the solution is not trivial when the number of network appliances is big.
