Skybox Security has announced general availability of Skybox View 5.0. This release brings superior firewall management features, including change assurance workflow and change tracking capabilities, enhanced rule compliance analysis, streamlined platform administration, and scalable network mapping to meet growing cyber security needs.

Skybox View 5.0 strengthens an organization's cyber security posture through enhancements that help prevent cyber attacks and avoid risks of network outages. Firewall management now provides a two customizable workflow options for managing change requests, and comprehensive history of all changes. Network modelling has been enhanced to allow unprecedented scalability; now organizations with hundreds of thousands of nodes can visualize their network infrastructures to anticipate cyber threats.

"The marrying of risk and threat modelling with change management and compliance auditing facilitates a long overdue relationship between historically disparate operations, auditors, and security groups." - said Andrew Hay, Senior Analyst, The 451 Group.

The Skybox View 5.0 product portfolio meets the evolving needs of enterprise and mid-size organizations, with three products: Skybox Firewall Assurance, Skybox Network Assurance, and Skybox Risk Control. Skybox Firewall Assurance lets users quickly identify compliance issues and risks in firewall configurations, and optional Change Manager module streamlines the change management process. Skybox Network Assurance makes use of an enhanced network topology map to effectively evaluate network and access policy compliance. Skybox Risk Control provides a detailed model of the network and potential risks and attack scenarios; it now incorporates a governance dashboard for vulnerability and patch management programs.

Skybox View 5.0 delivers high performance and enterprise-class functionality. With its state of the art firewall change management capabilities, it automatically analyzes firewall settings in seconds instead of hours, allowing the IT team to resolve firewall configuration and compliance issues before they can cause harm. Skybox View delivers advanced analytics and enterprise-level features that have been stress-tested for years in some of the most challenging networks in the world.

"Working with our customers and partners, we have built a robust suite of security management products to reduce threats and risks across complex network environments."
