On Monday, San Jose, Calif.-based security analytics company Skybox Security revealed the launch of Skybox Horizon, an enterprise attack surface visualization and management tool that integrates with the company's flagship Security Suite. The tool provides a visual way for chief information security officers to consolidate and analyze data from the environment to pinpoint vulnerabilities, possible attack vendors, misconfigurations and areas of risk. From there, the tool helps CISOs manage the correction of these issues.
"For years, CISOs have struggled to gain a satisfactory level of visibility over their attack surface so they can truly understand their organizations' vulnerability to threats," founder and CEO Gidi Cohen said in a statement. "When CISOs only have access to 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."
