Amazon Detective is now available in the AWS Canada (Central) Region. You can now easily analyze, investigate, and quickly identify the root cause of potential security issues or suspicious activities in the AWS Canada (Central) region. 

Available in 16 commercial regions, Amazon Detective automatically collects log data from your AWS resources and uses machine learning, statistical analysis, and graph theory to build interactive visualizations that enable you to conduct faster and more efficient security investigations. Amazon Detective can analyze trillions of events from multiple data sources such as Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Flow Logs, AWS CloudTrail, and Amazon GuardDuty, and automatically creates a unified, interactive view of your resources, users, and the interactions between them over time. With this unified view, you can visualize all the details and context in one place to identify the underlying reasons for the findings, drill down into relevant historical activities, and quickly determine the root cause.  

You can enable your 30-day free trial of Amazon Detective with just a few clicks in the AWS Management console. Please see the AWS Regions page for all the regions where Detective is available. To learn more and get started, visit the Amazon Detective product page.
