Detecting compromised Microsoft 365 applications is about to become more easier

Recently new Security tools have been released for administrators by both CISA and CrowdStrike.

New PowerShell – based tool is released by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

This tool is smart enough to detect any compromised account or application in both Azure and Microsoft 365 environments.

This new tool was released right after Microsoft pointed out of how cybercriminals are misusing stolen credentials and getting access to Azure customers. This whole issue is discussed twice in recent blog posts earlier this month i.e. December 2020.

Azure admins can easily gain knowledge about how to spot anomalous behavior in their tenants.

Azure security tools

CISA’s advanced PowerShell-based tool is created by the Cloud Forensics team and is known as the “Sparrow”.

This tool itself can be used to simplify large sets of investigation modules and telemetry specifically in reference to recent attacks on federated identity sources and applications.

Sparrow is also able to check the unified Azure and Microsoft 365 audit log for indicators of compromise (IoCs). Also, to list Azure AD domains and to check Azure service principals and their Microsoft Graph API permissions in order to detect any potential malicious activity.

Other than Azure, CrowdStrike has also released free CrowdStrike Reporting Tool for Azure – CRT. It is released in order to help admins to have better control and to help them analyse the Azure environment in a more protective way.

If you want to operate in an environment that is secure and you want to store unlimited data then Cloud VPS Server is the best option available.

Could Intel Regain Dominance in 2021?

As we all know 2020 has been a rollercoaster for everyone including businesses, even the giant tech companies have faced several issues during this global pandemic that is Covid-19.

In 2020, Intel got a lot of negative attention, it happened mostly because of the latest the most stunning releases of tech devices by its competitors. Intel’s releases were great in 2020, but the actual problem came from the launch of AMD and Apple’s outshining Team Blue’s hardware.

Although, Intel’s Core i3 had HyperThreading this feature meant that Intel users will enjoy great multi-threaded performance. However, it was not enough when AMD Ryzen 5000 series were launched.

As we know, Intel’s latest mobile chips are brilliantly developed to provide excellent battery life, provided the fact that a lot of mobile applications are used by users at the same time. In November 2020, Intel’s mobile progress was reduced slightly when it’s major competitor and tech giant – Apple announced MacBook Air, Mac mini and 13-inch MacBook Pro which directly impacted the progress of intel’s silicon for processors that were designed in-house at Apple.

Few of the releases in 2020 might stay the same in 2021, for instance Intel Xe. It did allow consumers to use graphics themselves, however it still do not provide enough graphics to run an application or game such as, Cyberpunk 2077.

Considering the rapid change in technology and intel’s competitors are launching new products quickly with stunning new features, Intel users are looking forward to Intel graphics cards, but it feels like we have been waiting for this our entire life. I guess, we’ll have to wait and see if their concepts will translate into an actual product or not in 2021.

Apart from desktop applications that are often used by all consumers and are working quite well on Intel’s devices, their mobile side is also still competitive. Intel will face a hard time to stay competitive especially due to the heavy competition coming from both AMD and ARM.
