SAN JOSE, Ca. and RESTON, Va., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skybox Security Inc., a global leader in cybersecurity management, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a new partnership. As part of the agreement, Carahsoft has been named Skybox’s Master Government Aggregator™, with Skybox’s Common Criteria-certified platform of vulnerability management, policy management, cloud security management and operational technology security management solutions now available through Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule 70 and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts and the company’s reseller partners.

“Federal security teams face a great deal of pressure every single day,” said Uri Levy, VP of Channel Sales, Global SIs and Strategic Alliances at Skybox Security. “We are currently simplifying cybersecurity management at more than 70 government agencies. We are thrilled about our new partnership with Carahsoft – teaming the intelligence of our solution with their best-in-class expertise will improve the power, productivity and performance of security programs within the public sector.”

The Skybox solution platform is comprised of four dynamic security products:

  • Vulnerability Control – Uses context to analyze, prioritize and quickly remediate the riskiest vulnerabilities, focusing on exposed and exploitable occurrences in the organization
  • Firewall Assurance – Analyzes virtual and cloud-based firewalls to optimize and cleanup rules, detect security and compliance issues, track changes, and manage the entire rule life cycle
  • Change Manager – Intelligently automates firewall rule changes, proactively assessing for risk and compliance violations to secure rule creation, recertficiation and deprovisioning
  • Network Assurance – Collects and normalizes data from physical IT and OT networks, as well as public and private clouds to simplify management of rule, access and configuration policy

With complete, context-rich visibility; intelligent automation; over 140 integrated security and operational technologies; and out-of-the-box policy templates for HIPAA, SOX, DISA, FISMA, PCI–DSS, ISO 27001 and EU GDPR among others, the Skybox platform gives Federal security teams full control over their fragmented, hybrid estates while alleviating increasingly stretched resources. By centralizing, normalizing and analyzing data from multiple perspectives, it empowers the CISO to better protect their assets and secure their mission initiatives.

”Our main focus is to find new and innovative solutions that protect our government customers,” said Ryan Farrar, Manager of the Skybox Security team at Carahsoft. “Skybox’s broad security management solutions seamlessly integrate into any organization’s specific systems. We look forward to working with Skybox and our reseller partners to strengthen agencies’ security postures across federal, state and local governments.”
