Enhancements include new dashboard views showing risk exposures, multi-step attack scenarios, risk metrics by network region, and granular control of access to sensitive risk information.

Skybox Security, a provider of proactive security management solutions, today announced Skybox Risk Control 6.0, featuring enhancements that help businesses understand complex cyber security situations and act quickly to minimize risks that can lead to cyber-attacks and data breaches. These enhancements include: new dashboard views that show risk exposures, multi-step attack scenarios, risk metrics by network region, and granular control of access to sensitive risk information.

 “Only 16 percent of respondents in the PWC 2012 Global State of Information Security Survey believe that their organizations are prepared to confront an advanced persistent threat. It’s critical for IT security professionals to have the right tools to effectively pinpoint security issues and vulnerabilities that can be used to stage an attack,” said Gidi Cohen, CEO at Skybox Security. “Skybox Risk Control 6.0 gives valuable insight to answer daily security questions such as ‘which part of the network infrastructure is at greatest risk?’ or ‘which vulnerabilities are critical to address today?’”

Skybox Risk Control combines information about software vulnerabilities, network infrastructure, information assets, and threats into a consolidated view of cyber security risks and also automates the steps needed to prioritize vulnerabilities according to risk level to important information assets. It then provides immediate visibility into which patches have the greatest effect on reducing risk level and which cyber-threats pose the most danger to a specific network.

Featuring new dashboard views and reports, Risk Control 6.0 offers security managers an easy way to digest sophisticated network security information. The robust feature-set enables companies to do frequent risk assessments across large network infrastructures, automate vulnerability management tasks, quantify risk level, and dramatically reduce the time needed to address important risk exposures from months to hours. Based on unique network modeling and attack simulation technology, Risk Control also allows companies to perform virtual penetration testing to spot any security weaknesses and take preventative action.

“2011 has seen record numbers of cyber-security attacks with very public disclosures from some of the world’s best known organizations,” said Eric Ogren, analyst at The Ogren Group. “Companies of all sizes realize that every single day brings a slew of new vulnerabilities and new security threats that must be controlled. It is time for organizations to wake up and implement automated security solutions that perform closer to the speed of cyber-attacks to protect the business.”

Despite these risks, 93 percent of organizations are leaving their IBM i systems vulnerable to cybercrime. In this on-demand webinar, IBM i security experts Robin Tatam and Sandi Moore will reveal:
