    Cisco TrustSec

    • Control access to critical enterprise resources by business role, device type, and location, so policy changes can be made without redesigning the network.
    • Easily manage access control and segmentation while maintaining compliance.
    • Create and manage policies in an easy-to-use matrix.
    • Reduce the need for costly network re-architecture by automating firewall rules and access control list (ACL) administration.

    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

    Cisco TrustSec

    • Reduce operational expenses by simplifying network segmentation and defining security groups based on business roles, not IP addresses.
    • Limit the impact of a data breach by quickly isolating and containing threats using technology already in your network.

    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

    Cisco TrustSec

    • Help and solutions if needed, support
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    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

    • Reduction in IT operational costs
    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.
