AWS Security Hub integrates with the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) Access Analyzer

Posted on: Dec 3, 2019

AWS Security Hub now integrates with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) Access Analyzer. IAM Access Analyzer is an IAM feature that that makes it simple for security teams and administrators to check that their policies provide only the intended access to resources. The IAM Access Analyzer integration with Security Hub will send findings to Security Hub when policies allow public or cross-account access to resources. Security Hub will automatically enable this integration if you are already using IAM Access Analyzer, and you will begin receiving findings from IAM Access Analyzer without any action needed on your end. To learn more, visit the Integration page in the Security Hub console and click on the "Configuration" link for IAM Access Analyzer.

Available globally, AWS Security Hub gives you a comprehensive view of your high priority security alerts and compliance status across your AWS accounts. With Security Hub, you now have a single place that aggregates, organizes, and prioritizes your security alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie, as well as from AWS Partner solutions. You can also continuously monitor your environment using automated compliance checks based on the AWS best practices and industry standards, such as the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark. You can also take action on these security and compliance findings by using CloudWatch Event rules to send the findings to ticketing, chat, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR), and incident management tools or to custom remediation playbooks.
