Cloud-hosted workloads offer excellent scalability, ease of deployment, and pre-secured infrastructure for your workloads. However, the workloads themselves may still be susceptible to attack by cybercriminals. To help safeguard your resources in the cloud, you need to be able to keep up with threats, harden your resources that could be vulnerable to attacks, and deploy techniques to ensure that protection mechanisms are working.
Avyan Consulting partnered with the Azure Security Center team to build attack simulation playbooks for demonstration and training purposes. Azure administrators may use these playbooks to deploy fully operational web and Compute workloads, security management tools such as Azure Security Center & Web App Firewalls (WAFs), and SQL threat protection. Once deployed, the administrator can invoke attacks against the workloads, executing similar techniques used by adversaries around the world. These attack simulations are applied using the supplied instructions and automation.
