We are using Skybox Security in our company most specifically in the IT department. It acts as a great detector for threats and other attacks. Network assurance and tracking of any change can also be done by it. We are also utilizing it for cleanup purposes. It is buggy and is quite delicate especially for amateurs.
  • Its modules like firewall assurance and threat control work efficiently.
  • We can get report related to all firewalls, that helped us in analyzing the risk of threats.
  • It is available at a highly affordable price.
  • We have encountered few compatibility issues it most specifically with Azure.
  • It is buggy and that, eventually affects its work.
We have been using it and to our astonishment, we haven’t encountered any serious issue with it. It works so well and it is improving day by day. So all those people looking out for something to manage next-gen firewalls this is the best option according to me. and in a Super big company where there are loads of servers, it manages everything in the best possible way.

This product is being used by specific departments. We are an integrator, and we need a sophisticated tool for change management control to manage firewall policies. It is a centralized tool helping us continuously monitor our policies, firewall rules, and attachsk. This helps ensure compliancy, optimization and security protection.
  • Firewall change management. It is very important because it helps visualize the effect of a network change or a firewall change before it is applied.
  • It is very user friendly and simple to use with a centralized interface.
  • Has many good modules like the vulnerability control and firewall assurance.
  • Another useful tool is it generates informative reports on all firewalls to help in the risk analysis and assessment of any firewall change on the network. Thus it helps you take any precautions or corrective actions.
  • It doesn't support and integrate with Microsoft Azure
  • The pricing is quite high compared to others
  • There are a lot of bugs in the solution
  • The implementation is not that easy and takes a long time, it needs to be more automated.

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.




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 is being evaluated to replace similar tools to manage, audit, and insert into change control for next-generation firewalls. We need a tool that works with next-gen firewalls which the current enterprise tool does not support.
  • 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.
  • The management console could use work - move away from Java to HTML5 to something more lightweight
  • Dynamic objects are not properly identified in Skybox
I can't think where Skybox is not appropriate - maybe in smaller companies depending on fund availability. The developers are constantly improving and getting the system to where it needs to be for management of next-generation firewalls and audit support.

I'm a security consultant and I used Skybox Security for a financial customer with a very big server farm. To make the remediation part of the vulnerability management program faster, I prioritized the vulnerabilities based on the network map and attack vector. With the customer, I discussed the value of every asset (in terms of CIA) and the types of attack vector for every subnet analyzed and after that, I uploaded the results of the vulnerability assessment into Skybox.
  • Vulnerability prioritization
  • Review of firewall rules
  • Review of routing rules
  • 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.
In a big environment with many server ad network appliances, Skybox works very well to prioritize vulnerabilities in a smart mode and to have a network sight in terms of discovering security holes.

It's not useful for a small company because the cost is expensive and it's possible to make the three tasks above manually.

We use it for firewall and network assurance, for change tracking, configuration compliance, optimization, and cleanup, etc.
  • Change tracking
  • Configuration compliance
  • Network map
  • Compatibility
  • Support
It does well on network assurance and some features on firewall assurance. Needs to improve on compatibility, especially with checkpoint.

Skybox Security is currently being used only in the IT department. It is vulnerability monitoring, threat intel, threat emulation/attack simulation and vulnerability discovery all rolled into one and is useful if you're looking to augment the current security practices or are simply starting a new security program altogether.
  • Real-time threat intelligence with great content.
  • Vulnerability management - monitoring as well as detection is fantastic.
  • Totally worth the cost for what the offering is.
  • A cloud piece/offering would be a good place for improvement.
It's one of those all in one deals with Skybox and it's of great value but personally, I'd use this to augment my already set security program and staff. This would also be great for starting off with a smaller team and having a tool such as Skybox do a lot of the heavy lifting.
