Product Update: Monitoring Amazon Inspector findings
Andreas Wittig – 09 May 2023
We are glad to announce a product update: marbot configures monitoring of Amazon Inspector findings automatically. Amazon Inspector is a security assessment service that helps you identify potential security issues in your applications and infrastructure. To benefit from the security monitoring provided by Inspector, responding to potential threats as fast as possible is crucial.
Please note that this product update only affects customers using the Monitoring Assistant, which configures AWS monitoring automatically.
Who is already using the Monitoring Assitant?
- All teams that installed marbot for Slack after 2022-12-15.
- All teams that installed marbot for Microsoft Teams after 2023-01-17.
- All teams that opted-in by sending an email to support.
marbot creates an EventBridge rule to monitor Amazon Inspector findings out-of-the-box when enabling monitoring for an AWS account. In case Amazon Inspector identifies an issue with one of your EC2 instances, ECR repositories, or Lambda functions, you will receive an alert via Slack or Microsoft Teams.
Here is what an alert caused by an Inspector finding looks like in Microsoft Teams.
And here is the same alert in Slack.
Please let us know what you think about the new feature: firstname.lastname@example.org.
