Enhances complete vulnerability management workflow from discovery to
analysis and remediation of critical risks
The Discovery Center provides a centralized view of the initial
vulnerability assessment process, including quick access to
vulnerability data gathered from third-party scanners or Skybox’s
scanless Vulnerability Detector.
The Analytics Center uses sophisticated risk analytics and the Skybox
Vulnerability Database to eliminate irrelevant vulnerability data and
provide an accurate, prioritized picture of risk.
Finally, the Remediation Center, featuring the new vulnerability
remediation dashboard, supports fast resolution to achieve desired
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
the leading provider of risk analytics for cyber security, launched
Skybox Risk Control 7.0, a comprehensive vulnerability
management solution. Highlighting the Risk
Control 7.0 release is a new remediation dashboard, which provides a
central view for IT security professionals to effectively monitor and
track vulnerability remediation activities in large organizations.
Today, hackers frequently exploit vulnerabilities in servers, desktops
and network devices to breach information system defenses to launch
attacks, spread viruses and malware and steal confidential data.
Skybox’s context-aware remediation approach allows IT practitioners to
automatically convert volumes of vulnerability data into detailed
remediation instructions, supporting an end-to-end vulnerability
management process that is 50 times faster than traditional solutions.
Skybox identifies concentrations of vulnerabilities by vendor, business
unit, security bulletins, or by geographic location in a company,
enabling organizations to reduce overall vulnerability levels quickly,
with minimal effort. In addition, Skybox uses attack simulation and its
comprehensive view of network topology to identify specific attack
vectors against critical assets.
“Skybox Security allows security teams to address and remediate risks
every single day,” said Gidi Cohen, CEO of Skybox Security. “Most
enterprises take months to discover, prioritize and remediate
vulnerabilities, and hackers take advantage of that time lapse. Using
Skybox Risk Control for vulnerability management, our customers meet
challenging internal requirements to deliver same-day identification and
resolution of critical vulnerabilities. This is impossible to achieve
using traditional vulnerability management approaches.”
Created for security managers who are responsible for taking action on
found vulnerabilities, the remediation dashboard provides a centralized
view to monitor and track the vulnerability remediation process against
defined service level agreements (SLAs). Security metrics track
resolution of vulnerabilities against goals, such as fixing
high-priority vulnerabilities within a defined period of time, or
achieving a target rate of found versus fixed vulnerabilities, and
provide a breakdown of vulnerabilities that meet the SLA and those that
The remediation dashboard guides daily remediation efforts by providing
a prioritized list of vulnerabilities and presenting multiple
remediation alternatives to block or mitigate known vulnerabilities,
such as patching, IPS shielding, configuration changes, or a prioritized
list of security bulletins that should be applied.
The remediation dashboard completes Risk Control’s three-step workflow
to simplify vulnerability management for enterprise-scale organizations:
Additional enhancements for Skybox’s vulnerability management solution,
based on Risk Control, include Vulnerability Detector, providing
scanless non-disruptive vulnerability detection at speeds of 100,000
hosts per hour. By comparison, the typical rate of a traditional active
scanner is 250 hosts/hour.
Risk Control’s Vulnerability Detector supports Microsoft Windows, Linux,
VMWare, Citrix, Apple Mac OS and various Unix operating systems; network
devices from Cisco, Check Point, Juniper Networks, and F5; and popular
enterprise end user applications such as web browsers, Microsoft Office,
Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Reader, Skype, and Microsoft Lync.
With Skybox’s vulnerability management solution, a leading UK financial
services team was able to take action on critical risks the same day the
vulnerabilities were detected. And Repsol, a Spanish multinational oil
and gas company, has been able to significantly reduce the number of
false positives from 20 percent to less than 1 percent, allowing it to
focus accurately on high-priority risks.
Skybox will be demonstrating the Risk Control 7.0 and the Remediation
Center at RSA Conference USA 2014. For more information, please visit Booth
