SAN JOSE, CA --(Marketwired - February 29, 2016) - Skybox(R) Security, a global leader in security analytics, unveiled
today Skybox(R) Horizon, a first-of-its-kind security management tool that gives CISOs the unprecedented ability to
visualize their enterprise attack surface in its entirety. Skybox will be previewing Horizon at the RSA Conference in
San Francisco.

Integrating with the Skybox(R) Security Suite, the company's award-winning analytics platform, Horizon uses the
contextual intelligence gained from consolidating and analyzing data from various sources to create a visual,
interactive model that links network topology, network connections, business units and organizational hierarchy. It
shows Indicators of Exposure(TM) (IOEs) throughout the attack surface, such as exploitable attack vectors, hot spots of
vulnerabilities, network security misconfigurations and risky firewall access rules, giving CISOs deep insight into the
state of their security from the widest possible range of sources.

In today's complex security landscape, networks are getting larger and more complicated, creating myriad holes in
defenses, while cyberattacks are increasing in sophistication and persistence. CISOs are challenged to centralize
security and gain visibility over the attack surface, the ways in which their IT systems are vulnerable to threats,
including potential attack vectors.

According to a 2015 Gartner report1, enterprises are shifting security budgets to security management platforms that
integrate existing technologies, unify data from multiple vendors, provide greater insight through advanced analytics
and enable security operations teams to automate and prioritize activities.

They are also looking for solutions that can help them more effectively report the security posture of the enterprise to
the board and executives in order to better inform IT security decision making throughout the organization.

'For years, CISOs have struggled to gain a satisfactory level of visibility over their attack surface, so they can truly
understand their organization's vulnerability to threats,' said Skybox Founder and CEO Gidi Cohen. 'Traditional
approaches fall short -- data is isolated between technologies from multiple vendors, providing only fleeting glimpses
into an enterprise's state of security. When CISOs have only 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.'

At RSA, Skybox will demonstrate how Horizon works with the company's vulnerability management, threat intelligence
management and security policy management products to create a comprehensive security management program that uses
visibility to shrink the attack surface.
