AlterPoint, Skybox Announce Partnership

AlterPoint and Skybox Security announced a partnership that delivers the first end-to-end risk management solution

AUSTIN, Tx. -- AlterPoint, the leader in intelligent Network Change and Configuration Management (NCCM) solutions, and Skybox Security, the leader in Security Risk Management (SRM), today announced a partnership that delivers the first end-to-end risk management solution. Driven by the need to enable business-oriented risk reporting and analysis of vulnerabilities as well as to satisfy audit and regulatory requirements, AlterPoint and Skybox have integrated the workflow and data exchange of their respective solutions. By combining AlterPoint DeviceAuthority with Skybox View, security management and network operations organizations can work as a unit to model and analyze device configurations and security controls and dramatically reduce the time to mitigate vulnerabilities. The overall goal of this convergence is to transform security information into business-oriented risk, audit and compliance intelligence and ultimately reduce the IT workload required to manage risk.

“The pressing need to increase the speed of vulnerability mitigation, coupled with pressure to meet new regulatory requirements, is driving the convergence of vulnerability management and IT security management functions,” reports Gartner in a recent article written for CSO entitled, “Vulnerability and IT Security Management are Converging”.

The integration of Skybox View’s unique virtual modeling and simulation capability with DeviceAuthority’s network configuration and release management functions enables organizations to deploy a predictive, closed-looped security risk assessment and change management process. Network configurations can be deployed with confidence that they are effective from an access, policy compliance, and risk perspective. With this integrated offering, organizations can achieve the right balance between the connectivity needs of the business while minimizing risk exposure through a virtual analysis and staging environment. The two technologies complement each other by offering a unique and comprehensive set of capabilities to:

  • Classify business assets
  • Discover configurations, vulnerabilities, controls and rules
  • Visualize threats, configurations and rules
  • Analyze configuration effectiveness and quantify risk exposures
  • Validate configuration and mitigation changes
  • Deploy, enforce, and manage standard network configurations
  • Monitor for continuous compliance and improvement

“Offering our Security Risk Management software as part of a comprehensive change management solution is a natural evolution of our go-to-market strategy. We partnered with AlterPoint because a significant number of organizations want our software as the backbone of a comprehensive end-to-end offering that effectively combines risk assessment with network change and configuration management,” said Gidi Cohen, chief strategy officer and founder for Skybox.

“To reduce risk and meet service levels, enterprises are demanding a consolidated approach for security, configuration and change across applications, servers and networks,” said Dave Barry, vice president for business development for AlterPoint. “By partnering with Skybox we can deliver to our customers deeper visibility into their security risk profile and close the loop with the capabilities to remediate problems.”
