Distributor, a capability of AWS Systems Manager, now allows you to install and manage a popular third party agent. With this launch, you can select a pre-built agent directly from Distributor without having to create or maintain any software packages. The Trend Micro Cloud One agent is the first agent offered. AWS will continue to seek opportunities to offer many other popular security and monitoring agents.

With Distributor, you manage your software packages from a centralized location. Software packages are stored in Systems Manager, providing a centralized repository with version control. The Trend Micro Cloud One agent is now available along with the AWS agents that were already available by default.

This feature is available in all AWS Regions where AWS Systems Manager is offered. Distributor is offered with pay-per-use pricing. See the AWS Systems Manager Pricing page for details. Distribution of AWS and third party owned agents is offered at no additional charge.
