Transcript

You need to be responsible for the security of applications, processes, and tools that run on EC2 instances. Amazon Inspector lets you analyze your deployed EC2 instances and helps you identify potential security issues. Some of the basic features include a knowledge base with hundreds of rules that are mapped to common security compliance standards and vulnerability definitions. These rules are regularly updated by AWS security experts. You can install an agent in the operating system of an Amazon EC2 instance to monitor behavior like network, file system, and process activity.

You can also automate vulnerability assessments to make security testing of EC2 instances a regular part of your cloud operations. As a result, Amazon Inspector gives you a prioritized list of findings. A sample list of findings is shown. Amazon inspector is all about protecting the security of your EC2 instances.
