New integration improves network visualization and the assessment of security controls in the public and private cloud.
SAN JOSE, CA-- Skybox™ Security, a global leader in cybersecurity operations, analytics and reporting, announced today new interoperability with Microsoft Azure Virtual Network (VNet), enabling customers to gain security visibility into virtualized networks created in the Azure Cloud.
The Skybox™ Security Suite easily integrates with Azure VNet,
incorporating the virtual environment in its network model to provide
normalized visibility and access simulation capabilities across public,
private and hybrid IT networks. This capability improves configuration
security and enables security teams to quickly understand Azure's role
in the integrity of an entire network.
reached the tipping point for cloud with more than 60 percent of
organizations now pursuing a hybrid IT approach. Cloud security,

to the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), one of the top threats to
companies in cloud environments is the risk of exploited system
only way to effectively prioritize those vulnerabilities is by having
visibility of the organization's entire attack surface, regardless of
the environment," Circus explained. "And, you need context. We not only
show how the virtualized network contributes to an organization's attack
surface, we give the context needed to understand where potentially
exploitable vulnerabilities exist."
Skybox automatically integrates Azure VNet data into the network model, including gateway routing, VPN
connections, subnets, hosts and security groups. Through one normalized
view, security teams can analyze network access paths, both north-south
(into and out of the data center) and east-west (within it). This
improves access troubleshooting and understanding of potential attack
Skybox previously announced integrations with Amazon Web Services and VMware NSX.
The addition of support for the Microsoft Azure Virtual Network
provides even more visibility into virtualized networks strengthening
the hybrid network security management capabilities of the Skybox Security Suite.
