CISA has recently unveiled an invaluable assortment of free tools designed to empower organizations in safeguarding their cloud environments.
CISA’s post mentioned that these tools assist incident response analysts and network defenders in managing, recognizing, and discovering threats, vulnerabilities, and anomalies in cloud or hybrid environments.
In the course of an attack, threat actors have traditionally focused their attention on internal servers. Cloud migration is growing quickly, attracting the attention of many cyberattackers who see the cloud as a big and tempting target.
CISA’s tools are invaluable resources for organizations lacking the necessary means to effectively defend against cloud threats. Utilizing these tools is instrumental in safeguarding their cloud resources against the perils of information theft, data theft, and information exposure.
The purpose is to help with identifying and reducing weaknesses and risks that occur when working with cloud-based or hybrid setups.
The highlighted tools enhance the existing tools offered by cloud service improving provider services by strengthening network infrastructures, enhancing security measures, quickly identifying harmful compromises, thoroughly identifying potential threats, and accurately detecting malicious activity after a breach.
CISA stated that cloud service platforms and providers have created security features that help organizations improve security when using cloud environments.
In August 2021, the cybersecurity agency introduced the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), an innovative partnership designed to protect vital U.S. infrastructure from the ever-present dangers of ransomware and other cyber threats.
