ImmuniWeb debuts free cloud security test
Wednesday, September 29, 2021
The technology behind the test leverages open-source intelligence (OSINT), big data and smart prediction technology based on machine learning to discover unprotected cloud buckets belonging to a particular company. To prevent using its new tool for potentially malicious purposes, free registration and account validation are required to gather the URLs of exposed cloud buckets. The tool is also equipped with a free API available after registration for DevOps and cyber security teams.
Ilia Kolochenko, chief architect and CEO at ImmuniWeb says: “Leading cloud providers, such as AWS, have a full spectrum of powerful tools and services that can instantly detect and automatically remediate misconfigurations in their cloud environments. Unfortunately, many organisations of all sizes struggle to properly implement cloud security posture management due to complexity or lack of technical skills.”
He says many existing commercial solutions and open-source tools also require a cloud IAM account to unpack and then assess the security of a company’s cloud assets. ImmuniWeb’s tool does not require cloud credentials and leverages its proprietary discovery techniques to do this.
“We will soon implement such features as free continuous monitoring and API to further simplify its usage and integration into existing CSPM and incident response processes. More exciting announcements are coming soon,” he ends. Read Full Article
