Amazon Web Services has a new service for monitoring and prioritizing security issues. It’s the AWS Security Hub, reports Silicon Angle. The service is designed to give users a comprehensive picture of their security status in the cloud service.

The service should also help users check their compliance with security industry standards and best practices. Security Hub collects data from all accounts, services and supported partners. The idea is to provide both analyses of security trends and identification of high-priority security issues.

“Security Hub reduces the effort you have to take to collect and prioritize security findings from different accounts,” said Amazon. “The service uses data via a standard findings format, so you don’t have to convert data, which takes a lot of time. It then correlates the findings of various providers to give high priority to the most important findings.”

Third parties

The Security Hub comes with support for security from third parties, many of whom have already signed up for the service. Trend Micro, McAfee, Check Point, Tenable, Sumo Logic and others already support the service.

According to George Gerchow, CSO at Sumo Logic, the service sends a strong message to the market about the relevance of and need for security solutions that fight today’s modern security threats. He explains that his company “As a Security Hub launch partner, we can help our joint customers complete the security response lifecycle by providing analysts with the raw data and a platform they need to correlate, investigate and resolve risks and attacks.” Gerchow concludes that legacy SIEM and on-premise systems cannot keep up with the speed of innovation in the cloud, containers, orchestration and serverless computing.
