Overall Satisfaction with Skybox Security

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.
  • Collects info from all connected firewalls and generates informative reports
  • Long time to implement
  • Easier to scan the whole complex network.
  • Pricing and technical support need to be improved
  • Change management has become easier as it assesses its impact before applying the change.
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.
