Skybox Security Products Honored With Three Cybersecurity Awards in June

The Skybox Security Suite Receives Five-Stars and Two High Commendations; Skybox Horizon Is Named Most Innovative Product of 2016

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - June 23, 2016) - Skybox® Security, a global leader in security analytics, is proud to announce the company was honored with three separate cybersecurity awards in June:

  • SC Magazine gave the Skybox® Security Suite its highest rating of five stars in its Group Test for Vulnerability Management. The test was conducted by the magazine's U.S. testing team, which includes SC Lab staff and a network of external experts who are respected industrywide. According to the review, five stars means, "Outstanding. An 'A' on the product's report card."
  • The Cyber Security Awards today honored Skybox® Horizon as "Innovative Product of the Year" for 2016.
  • SC Magazine UK honored the Skybox® Security Suite with high commendation in two categories -- Best Vulnerability Management Solution and Best Risk/Policy Management and Regulatory Compliance Solutions -- at the 2016 SC Magazine Awards Europe. The awards were announced during Infosecurity Europe 2016. Each year, a handpicked panel of information technology security experts from the private and public sectors review hundreds of entries and narrow the field down to a select group of finalists.

The Skybox® Security Suite is an advanced analytics platform comprised of five integrated modules that improve security operations and management for vulnerability and threat management and security policy management. The modules unify data from point solutions companies are already using; then the Skybox platform applies modeling, simulation and analytics to extract contextual intelligence and provide a comprehensive, big-picture view of an enterprise's attack surface. Armed with this information, security teams are better able to prioritize vulnerabilities and threats and make fast, informed decisions about where to direct scarce resources to reduce exposure to cyberattacks.

Skybox® Horizon, which is included with the Suite, is a first-of-its-kind security management tool that gives CISOs and their teams the unprecedented ability to visualize an enterprise's attack surface in its entirety. Skybox launched Horizon at the RSA Conference in San Francisco this year.

"The importance of this sector continues to grow, including the demand for the skills and talents of its participants," said Tony Morin, editor-in-chief for SC Magazine UK. "Every year our attackers up their game, and every year we need to do at least the same to match them -- and more to beat them. Skybox Security is a great example of our industry's talent and skill."
