Skybox Horizon Reduces Exposure to Cyberattacks by Giving CISOs Unprecedented Visibility of the Attack Surface and Indicators of Exposure (IOEs)
Providing more power to the CISOs, Skybox Security launches Skybox Horizon, a solution that provides ability to visualize their enterprise attack surface in its entirety. And Skybox is previewing this at the RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Integrating with the Skybox Security Suite, the company’s award-winning analytics platform, Horizon uses the contextual intelligence gained from consolidating and analyzing data from various sources to create a visual, interactive model that links network topology, network connections, business units and organizational hierarchy. It shows Indicators of Exposure (IOEs) throughout the attack surface, such as exploitable attack vectors, hot spots of vulnerabilities, network security misconfigurations and risky firewall access rules, giving CISOs deep insight into the state of their security from the widest possible range of sources.
According to a 2015 Gartner report1, enterprises are shifting security budgets to security management platforms that integrate existing technologies, unify data from multiple vendors, provide greater insight through advanced analytics and enable security operations teams to automate and prioritize activities.
They are also looking for solutions that can help them more effectively report the security posture of the enterprise to the board and executives in order to better inform IT security decision making throughout the organization.
“For years, CISOs have struggled to gain a satisfactory level of visibility over their attack surface, so they can truly understand their organization’s vulnerability to threats,” said Skybox Founder and CEO Gidi Cohen. “Traditional approaches fall short — data is isolated between technologies from multiple vendors, providing only fleeting glimpses into an enterprise’s state of security. When CISOs have only partial information, they can’t analyze data in context, which limits their ability to quickly make decisions about where to direct scarce resources. We’re changing this with Horizon.”
