Updated Azure CIS Compliance Pack
The CIS Microsoft Azure Benchmark offers a collection of best practices for securely configuring Microsoft Azure. Similar to other CIS benchmarks, this one was developed through a unique consensus-based process informed by cybersecurity professionals and subject matter experts. Through our Azure CIS compliance pack, we have consolidated dozens of out-of-the-box policies that automate compliance to meet the CIS Azure Benchmark standards.
We are pleased to offer a major update to the Azure CIS compliance pack to align with the latest version of the benchmark itself (1.1.0). As with our previous version, all benchmarks are mapped directly through DivvyCloud’s insights.
The updated compliance pack includes these new filters:
- Storage Account Storing Activity Logs
- Activity Log Profile Not Configured to Capture All Categories
- Activity Log Profile Not Configured for All Regions

AWS Elastic Beanstalk Enhancements
AWS Elastic Beanstalk is a service for deploying and scaling web applications and services developed with Java, .NET, PHP, Node.js, Python, Ruby, Go, and Docker on servers such as Apache, Nginx, Passenger, and IIS.
We have enhanced DivvyCloud’s Insights into AWS Elastic Beanstalk applications and environments. To complement this, we’ve added a few new filters and and translated this into the user interface by adding a new column to the resources page.
For more information about AWS Elastic Beanstalk and how to use it with DivvyCloud, refer to our documentation on AWS configuration.
Stackdriver is a service that provides performance and diagnostics data. For customers using GCP, we now offer the ability to export job backlogs to Stackdriver. This enables our customers to set up intelligent autoscaling of their worker tiers. Click here for additional information about GCP Stackdriver job backlog exports.
