Incidents can be detected for a wide array of virtual machine (Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)) or container-based workloads (Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) including storage services needed to support the target applications.
- Rich, multifaceted incident data: provides integrated CASB-derived functionality such as DLP / Malware detection and user behavior and threat analytics that go beyond detecting basic configuration issues.
