Skybox Security, a global leader in cyber security management, today announced it has integrated with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to expand vulnerability management for enterprises that deploy workloads across hybrid and cloud network environments. In addition, Skybox announces it has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association. The integration strengthens Skybox’s vulnerability detection capabilities with the inclusion of critical data from Microsoft Defender ATP.

“Skybox’s integration with Microsoft sets a new standard for corporate vulnerability detection and management,” said Skybox Security VP of Global Channels, GSIs & Alliances Uri Levy. “Being tightly integrated with Microsoft Defender ATP puts us in a better position to help organisations cut through complexities that are inherent to vulnerability management. It also gives us the ability to enable best-in-class managed security services with enhanced vulnerability detection capabilities that meet the needs of cloud-first organisations head-on. Security teams will be in a much stronger position to confidently expand and adopt new innovations for their businesses.”

“At Microsoft, we are always looking for new ways to help people to drive their organisations’ digital transformation,” said Tomer Teller, principal security program manager, Microsoft 365 Security at Microsoft. “The world’s largest organisations, including our customers, need solutions that work well together. Microsoft and Skybox are tackling these integration challenges together, so CISOs can focus on their companies' transformation.”

Skybox collects, normalises and merges data in a central repository from more than 140 technology integrations including all of the major IT vulnerability scanning vendors and operational technology (OT) security vendors. Working with Microsoft Defender ATP, Skybox will gain access to an even broader range of data that will expand the efficacy of the solution’s vulnerability detection and extend its reach further into multiple cloud services.
