LIVERMORE, Calif. — Programmers at Sandia National Laboratories are helping the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency protect the nation through an innovative program, assisting Microsoft cloud users everywhere in tracking down hackers and cyber terrorists.

Untitled Goose Tool was introduced to the public through a CISA alert in March. Sandia cybersecurity expert Wellington Lee was part of the team that developed the free tool to track potentially malicious activity in Microsoft Azure, Azure Active Directory, and Microsoft 365 environments. The tool’s name was inspired by a videogame about a troublemaking goose.
