Skybox Security's Global Financial Services Company Case Study Selected a Winner in the PCI DSS Category

Our customers view Skybox as a true partner in security risk and compliance management, as demonstrated by the many successful deployments around the world including this global financial services company.

Skybox Security announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named the Skybox Security Global Financial Services Company Case Study a winner of the 2009 Best Deployment Scenario Awards in the PCI DSS category . This prestigious award recognizes security vendors with advanced, ground-breaking security solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security. The Skybox Case Study was selected based on real world solution deployments that are making the most positive impact on security in today's highly sophisticated and blended attacks environment.

The large financial services company featured in the Skybox case study - one of the most recognized global financial services brands - operates one of the world's largest retail electronic payments networks. Processing a high volume of credit card transactions, the company must demonstrate compliance with the most stringent Level 1 PCI DSS requirements. With a staggering number of firewall rules, the company needed firewall compliance tools to help with annual firewall audits. After an in-depth evaluation of products, the company chose Skybox Security due to its unique risk-based approach to firewall and network compliance. The result: audits take place in minutes, rather than weeks, and the company now meets PCI DSS compliance requirements not just during audit season, but every day of the year.
