Monitoring: Amazon ECR

Amazon ECR is a container registry service that makes storing and managing your container images easy. Store your container images in a highly secure, private, or public repository. Amazon ECR is designed with security in mind, so your private repositories require IAM access control.

Why should you monitor Amazon ECR?

Keeping a close eye on your ECR Image scanning results is crucial. This is because Amazon ECR image scanning plays an important role in helping you to identify any potential software vulnerabilities that may exist within your container images. By closely monitoring these findings, you can help ensure that your systems remain secure and that any vulnerabilities are identified and addressed as quickly as possible before they can cause any damage or lead to security breaches.
