Starting today, Amazon GuardDuty makes continuous security monitoring and threat detection easier with two multi-account feature enhancements. First, GuardDuty has increased the number of possible associated accounts from 100 to 1,000 member accounts. Second, GuardDuty administrators can now manage custom threat intelligence lists in the GuardDuty master account and apply updates in up to 1,000 member accounts. In addition, customers can manage all GuardDuty account configurations for up to 1,000 member accounts from a single, security-owned GuardDuty master account. 

For security teams who are responsible for 100s of AWS accounts in their organization, these multi-account feature enhancements further streamline the deployment and ongoing management of continuous security monitoring and threat detection across a large organization.

This feature is available today in all AWS Regions where GuardDuty is offered. To learn more, see Managing AWS Accounts in Amazon GuardDuty and to start your 30-day free trial, see Amazon GuardDuty.
