Monitoring: Amazon Inspector

Amazon Inspector is a security assessment service that helps you identify potential security issues in your applications and infrastructure.
It uses a combination of automated security assessments and manual reviews to analyze your resources for common vulnerabilities and configuration issues. Amazon Inspector provides a detailed list of findings and recommendations, prioritized by severity and ease of remediation, to help you quickly identify and address security issues. It integrates with AWS services like Amazon EC2, AWS Lambda, and Amazon S3, as well as third-party tools, to provide a comprehensive security assessment of your entire environment. Amazon Inspector can be easily configured and automated to run security assessments regularly, allowing you to maintain a continuous and proactive approach to security.
