Skybox Security Selected To Showcase Security Risk Management Software in Premier “Innovation Station” At RSA Conference 2005

PALO ALTO, CA – February 14, 2005 – Skybox® Security, Inc., the leader in Security Risk Management (SRM), has been selected to demonstrate its innovative enterprise security software and present as a finalist in the inaugural RSA “Innovation Station,” a prestigious new showcase and award to be launched during the 14th annual RSA Conference 2005 being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. Skybox is one of eleven emerging information security companies judged most likely to succeed in delivering next generation products and services. Show attendees can see a demonstration of the groundbreaking Skybox® View 2.0 enterprise software in the “Innovation Station” on the Expo Floor (Booth #1442) or in the Skybox booth (Booth #323).

Skybox View’s innovative modeling and simulation technology provides the missing “analytics” necessary for enterprises to raise vulnerability assessment, threat analysis, remediation planning and change management to the business risk level where it belongs. It provides the visibility needed to help security, network and business units work more effectively as a team and is relied upon – from security and network administrators and senior IT and operations professionals to CSOs/CISOs, CFOs and CEOs – to understand the state of security. With Skybox View enterprises can deploy risk management as a best practice to automate the continuous measurement and reporting of business risk exposure required by regulations while maintaining risk-resilient networks.

The “Innovation Station” is a new pavilion on the exhibition floor that will showcase up-and-coming information security products or services. Emerging, privately-held or pre-IPO information security companies will vie for the honor of becoming the first “RSA® Conference Innovation Station Award.” The winner of the inaugural RSA Innovation Station Award will be announced on February 16th, following a demonstration from each finalist before a live panel of judges.

Details on the award are available online at: www.rsaconference.com.

About Skybox View
Skybox® View automates labor-intensive risk assessment and remediation planning processes. Skybox View helps enterprises continuously collect, identify visualize and understand the total risk exposure of digital assets and proactively prioritize and optimize the mitigation steps necessary to prevent internal and external attacks. It represents the missing piece for assessing, evaluating and mitigating pre-attack exposures, taking network information and business impact into account. Unique patented modeling and attack simulation technologies generate a virtual map of business asset exposures, distilling thousands of vulnerabilities down to the one to two percent that really matter. “What if” planning analysis puts security, network and business teams on the same page, empowering IT organizations to balance the cost and benefit of proposed remediation, network changes or patches before deployment. Open collection architecture leverages existing and future investments in firewall, router, network and vulnerability scanner technologies.
