AWS GuardDuty Multi Region Module

View SourceRelease Notes

This module wraps the guardduty core module to configure AWS GuardDuty in all enabled regions for the AWS Account.

Features

  • Uses the guardduty module to enable AWS GuardDuty across all regions (recommended best practice) on your AWS account

  • Continuously monitor your AWS account for malicious activity and unauthorized behavior

  • Analyze events across multiple AWS data sources, such as AWS CloudTrail, Amazon VPC Flow Logs, and DNS logs and use machine learning, anomaly detection, and integrated threat intelligence to identify and prioritize potential threats

  • Allows publishing threat findings to S3 and SNS topics through CloudWatch Events
