SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - April 07, 2016) - Skybox® Security, a global leader in security analytics, announced today that CRN® magazine has named the company to its inaugural CRN Security 100 list as one of the "25 Coolest Network Security Vendors" on the market. The award recognized the Skybox® Security Suite, which integrates with more than 90 security technologies and network devices that companies are likely already using.

The Suite is an advanced analytics platform comprised of five integrated modules that improve security operations and management in vulnerability and threat management and security policy management. The modules unify data from the technologies they integrate with and then uses modeling, simulation and analytics to extract contextual intelligence. This comprehensive understanding of the attack surface arms security teams with the information they need to make fast, informed decisions about where to direct resources in order to reduce exposure to cyberattacks.

"Security solutions are more essential than ever to the health and sustainability of every business, large or small," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, the parent company of CRN. "The frequency and complexity of IT security threats have vastly increased in recent years, requiring rapid innovation and an incisive, forward-thinking defense strategy. The importance of having expertly secured networks, software, hardware, applications and databases cannot be overstated. Our Security 100 list honors those tech suppliers at the forefront of this field for their contributions to the advancement of the channel and to the IT market at large."

CRN also notably listed Skybox® Horizon as one of the RSA 2016 "Cool New Security Products." Launched in February, Horizon gives CISOs unprecedented visibility of the attack surface, including a broad range of Indicators of Exposures (IOEs), such as hot spots of vulnerabilities, network security misconfigurations and risky firewall access rules. 

In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the CRN Security 100 list also serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.

The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at
