Overview

Amazon GuardDuty is a threat detection service that continuously monitors for malicious activity and unauthorized behavior to protect your AWS accounts and workloads. With the cloud, the collection and aggregation of account and network activities is simplified, but it can be time consuming for security teams to continuously analyze event log data for potential threats. With GuardDuty, you now have an intelligent and cost-effective option for continuous threat detection in the AWS Cloud. The service uses machine learning, anomaly detection, and integrated threat intelligence to identify and prioritize potential threats. GuardDuty analyzes tens of billions of events across multiple AWS data sources, such as AWS CloudTrail, Amazon VPC Flow Logs, and DNS logs. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, GuardDuty can be enabled with no software or hardware to deploy or maintain. By integrating with AWS CloudWatch Events, GuardDuty alerts are actionable, easy to aggregate across multiple accounts, and straightforward to push into existing event management and workflow systems.

Security posture management for your cloud workloads
Quickly assess your security posture with Secure Score. This feature provides recommendations with numeric values to help you prioritize your responses.

Ensure you’re following best practices and fix common misconfigurations for Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) resources that may include:

-Failure to deploy system updates on virtual machines (VMs).
-Unnecessary exposure to the Internet through public-facing endpoints.
-Unencrypted data in transit or storage.

When you address these, easily deploy Microsoft and partner solutions directly from the Azure portal.

Customize your security policy to focus on what you need to—for example, check for web application firewalls or storage encryption—and apply your policy to multiple Azure subscriptions. Gain visibility across your environment to verify compliance with regulatory requirements, such as CIS, PCI DSS, SOC, and ISO.
