CISA has published a list of free cybersecurity services and tools to help organizations in improving their security and defending against cyberattacks.
While the set is neither comprehensive nor immune to change, when combined with baseline security practises, it attempts to mature an entity’s cybersecurity risk management for a robust cybersecurity program.
The list includes various services from CISA, open-source utilities, and free tools and services from public and private sector organisations.
Microsoft, Google, VMware, IBM, Mandiant, Cisco, Secureworks, Cloudflare, Center for Internet Security, CrowdStrike, Tenable, AT&T Cybersecurity, Kali Linux Project, Splunk, SANS, and Palo Alto Networks are among the 97 tools and services from the open-source space as well as from CISA’s repository and various organizations relevant to the cybersecurity sector.
Each entry includes a short description, a link, and a assessment of the amount of skill level necessary to manage it, which ranges from “basic” to “advanced.”
The CISA agency emphasises that the tools and services provided are not guaranteed to be appropriate “for any particular use case.”
Although many of the resources listed are from private companies, CISA highlights that their inclusion does not imply that the agency endorses or favours them.
