SAN JOSE, Calif.--(Skybox Security, the leader in proactive security risk management solutions, announced today that Skybox Risk Control has been named a finalist in the Best Security Management category by the 2013 SC Magazine Awards Europe. According to SC Magazine Europe, the products within the Best Security Management category provide high-level controls for risk assessment and risk analysis, identify threats, rate enterprise vulnerabilities to threats and implement controls.)--
“Our priority is to help government and commercial organizations combat looming cyber threats that present serious economic and national security challenges.”
Traditional security management tools are often reactive, used infrequently, or disruptive to the business – resulting in too much information, way too late, with no context or priorities. Skybox Risk Control is the first integrated security risk management solution that combines capabilities to discover vulnerabilities daily, automatically prioritize risks in the context of the network and existing security controls, and drive remediation activities. This enables security teams to systematically reduce risks such as existing vulnerabilities that could be exploited to disrupt core business services or steal valuable data.
Recently Skybox introduced Vulnerability Detector in Risk Control, which performs non-intrusive vulnerability detection, deriving an accurate list of cyber exposures daily, without an active scan.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the leading contenders within the Security Management category,” commented Gidi Cohen, CEO at Skybox Security. “Our priority is to help government and commercial organizations combat looming cyber threats that present serious economic and national security challenges.”
Skybox Security customers are some of the most security-conscious enterprises and government agencies in the world, with mission-critical global networks and pressing regulatory compliance requirements. Leveraging sophisticated predictive analytics, Skybox provides IT security and compliance managers with the right solutions to anticipate and prevent critical IT risk exposures before they cause harm – even on the most complex IT networks.
Winners of this year’s SC Awards Europe will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in London on Tuesday, April 23, 2013. The event is a night filled with excitement, along with an invaluable opportunity to network with the industry’s most talented corporate IT professionals in attendance.
