ECS and Skybox Security partner for network security risk mitigation

Helping large enterprise customers to better manage their network platform risk, ECS has signed a partnership agreement with Skybox Security, the fast-growing provider of integrated security management solutions.

The Skybox Security Suite unifies data silos from network and security devices, and uses network modeling and attack vector analytics to correlate that information with vulnerability and threat intelligence. This context ensures risks and response are accurately prioritized for a particular network. The Skybox platform makes it easy for a business to model how changes to its enterprise security policy will impact the risk level on a daily basis.

Skybox is proving attractive to enterprises as they prepare for EU GDPR by providing visibility into the network architecture, interactions and risks to ensure compliance standards are in place ahead of the enforcement deadline. Firms in regulated industries who need to demonstrate compliance are also adopting the technology.

“ECS’s reputation for helping large UK enterprises solve complex IT and networking challenges made it an easy decision to work together in a formal partnership. We already have a number of joint customers in financial services and look forward to extending our reach further,” said Skybox EMEA Channel Director, Jono Clarke-Storey.

“Many enterprises are struggling to integrate all their security management data, including networking control data and security control data, particularly as they prepare to support the EU GDPR by May 2018,” said Kevin Clark, ECS Networks practice Director and General Manager.

“Skybox stands out because it offers the full complement of products and features for network security management on a single platform. In particular, the Change Manager module is the ultimate automated check and balance, ensuring pre-modelled and approved changes are implemented according to the signed-off plan,” Clark added.
