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.

I've been using this product since it began as an open source product, I really like it and for the money, I think it's probably the best choice for most companies who need a product like this. Over the years I've seen the interface change quite a bit and sometimes I think it's a bit unclear how to do certain things and the different packages can be confusing, these are the only reasons I'm giving it a 9 instead of a 10.

Pros

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.

Tenable.io

  • Setup of the internal scanner was fairly simple and straight forward.
  • An update came out for the internal scanner that allows you to add an Internal Certificate Authority for lookup.
  • Has automated reporting to keep executives and compliance departments informed.
  • Internal scanner can be configured to auto-update itself.
  • "Recast Rules" allows your organization to redefine a vulnerabilities' classification, if it is not applicable or your disagree.
  • External PCI scans allow you to remediate before submitting to Tenable.io for review.
  • Tenable.io staff was very patient and helpful. They provided some limited guidance with remediation.
  • Internal and External scans can be automated. schedule for the automated scans is very granular.

Cons

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.

Tenable.io

  • Have to switch between interfaces to access certain functionality
  • Scan speeds/resource utilization at times
  • Executive level reporting could do with some improvements

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.

Support is usually really great at walking you through any steps you need to take when you get stuck on something. There are a few false positives and errors that have come up over the years that required their help to get through. Unfortunately, the steps required to diagnose some problems are more tedious than I think should be necessary. (IE: SQL instances can throw errors that clog up your logs because one plugin affects it in a certain way. The process to diagnose this is to watch timestamps of plugins in a log while monitoring the SQL logs at the same time and using your best guess as to what is causing it.)

CloudGuard Dome9 does not have a suite for an on-premise datacenter.

Tenable.io has a comparable set of features, with excellent support and a competitive price. After less than desirable experiences with another company, we moved to Tenable and haven't looked back since.

Return on Investment

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.

Tenable.io

  • Since this is a requirement for our PCI compliance and the cost is relatively low, the ROI isn't really something we need to think too much about, Tenable's pricing is fair and affordable.
