Introduction to Amazon Inspector. Amazon Inspector has evolved to a new version introduced over a year ago with a new architecture, features, and integrations which has replaced the prior version now called Inspector Classic. The new Amazon Inspector automates security scans and assessments for your applications in terms of unintended network exposure, vulnerabilities, and deviations from best practices. Inspector can be enabled at the organization level for multi-account management, and implements automated discovery and continued scanning. And this provides you near real-time results presented as findings where many factors are considered to provide a meaningful Inspector risk score. The results are supported by a vulnerability database maintained by AWS security experts and includes steps for remediation.
Once activated, Inspector findings can be presented via the Inspector console, sent to a WS Security Hub, dispatched to Amazon Event Bridge, or any of the solutions provided by Amazon Partner Network partners with security tools that leverage Inspector detail findings to implement workflows for remediation and issue resolution. You can enable Amazon Inspector at your account and organization level. It will scan EC2 instances, elastic container registries, and even Lambda functions for security and vulnerabilities. A high-level flow for the new Amazon Inspector operation is on display. Inspector findings can be presented via the Inspector console, sent to security hub, dispatched to Amazon Event Bridge or any solutions by APN partners. These security tools leverage Inspector detail findings to implement the workflows in order for you to be able to repair any issues or implement any remediation.
