Distributor, a capability of AWS Systems Manager, allows you to select from available third-party agents to install and manage on your instances. With this launch, you can deploy the pre-built Alert Logic Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Agent directly from Distributor to your EC2 or on-premises instances without having to create or maintain any software packages. The Alert Logic MDR is now available along with third-party and AWS agents that are already available by default. You can use Distributor to install or update any of these available agents on your instances or create your own software packages to distribute. Your software packages are stored in Systems Manager, providing a centralized repository with version control.

This feature is available in US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (N. California, Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris), and South America (São Paulo). 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. For more details about Distributor, see the Systems Manager documentation.
