Zscaler and Skybox Security work together to connect two of their products for better end-to-end protection. The two companies will combine Zscaler’s Cloud Firewall product with the Skybox Security Suite.

The latter product offers companies visibility, vulnerability control and firewall and network guarantees. Information from Zscaler will be entered directly into the firewall and network security modules. Customers using Zscaler Cloud Firewall can thus make it easier for them to comply with policies and automatically flag problems.

Organizations need a seamless way to deliver a consistent and compliant network policy, says Punit Minocha, SVP business and corporate development at Zscaler, in a statement. The fast and secure policy-based access of the Zscaler cloud platform connects the right user to the right service or application. Combined with the Skybox security policy management solution, we simplify management and enable customers to migrate their policies to modern cloud architecture.

Cloud containers increasingly vulnerable

Skybox has previously published a report on vulnerabilities and developments regarding security threats, reports CloudTech. It described that cloud containers were becoming increasingly vulnerable, at around 46% compared to the previous year. According to Skybox, this was accompanied by both good and bad news: the good news is that there were few known abuses for these vulnerabilities, but at the same time networks are becoming more and more complex. This means that it is becoming increasingly difficult to identify and resolve weaknesses.

It is crucial that customers have a way of detecting vulnerabilities, even if their environment changes regularly, said Skybox VP product Amrit Williams. They should also assess the exploits and exposures of those vulnerabilities within hybrid networks and prioritize them alongside the vulnerabilities of the rest of the on-premise environment, virtual networks, and other clouds.
