Amazon Web Services (AWS) has declared that its new cloud security service will be available to the general public. The ‘Amazon Detective’ security service will help the customers to carry faster and more effective inquiries into security problems over their AWS workloads.

Whenever the companies face cloud security issue the security team should carry an investigation to understand the cause, access the impact, and take measures to resolve the issue. The issue could include compromised user credentials or illegal access to a resource. It is necessary that the security teams collect and join terabytes of potentially related data from the network, application, and security monitoring systems, and make it accessible in a way that allows their security analysts to conclude related deviations.

The Amazon Detective security service helps the security teams to carry faster and more effective inquiries. To help users analyze, investigate, and rapidly detect the root cause of potential security issues or suspicious activities the Amazon Detective dynamically collects log data from a user’s resources and uses machine learning, statistical analysis, and graph theory to create interactive visualizations.

The company claims that there will not be extra charges for using Amazon Detective. However, the customers would pay for data obtained from AWS CloudTrail, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Flow Logs, and Amazon GuardDuty findings.

Cloud Security Investigations

Dan Plastina, Vice President for Security Services at AWS said collecting the necessary information to operate efficient security investigations has been a hectic task traditionally. However, with Amazon Detective, it handles all the extra work off customer’s plate which allows them to concentrate on searching the root cause of an issue and to make sure it doesn’t repeat.

AWS users can enable Amazon Detective in the management console. The service is currently available in the US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Stockholm, and Paris), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), and South America (São Paulo) regions. It will shortly become accessible in other regions as well.
