Amazon GuardDuty is now available in the AWS Africa (Cape Town) and Europe (Milan) Regions. You can now continuously monitor and detect security threats in these regions to help protect your AWS accounts, workloads, and data stored in Amazon S3.

Available globally, Amazon GuardDuty continuously monitors for malicious or unauthorized behavior to help protect your AWS resources, including your AWS accounts, access keys, and data stored in Amazon S3. GuardDuty identifies unusual or unauthorized activity, like crypto-currency mining, access to data stores in S3 from unusual locations, or infrastructure deployments in a region that has never been used. Powered by threat intelligence, machine learning, and anomaly detection techniques to detect threats, GuardDuty is continuously evolving to help you protect your AWS environment.

You can enable your 30-day free trial of Amazon GuardDuty with a single-click in the AWS Management console. Please see the AWS Regions page for all the regions where GuardDuty is available. To learn more, see Amazon GuardDuty Findings and to start your 30-day free trial, see Amazon GuardDuty Free Trial. To receive programmatic updates on new Amazon GuardDuty features and threat detections, please subscribe to the Amazon GuardDuty SNS topic.
