Amazon GuardDuty is now available in the Europe (Zurich) Region. You can now continuously monitor and detect security threats in this additional region to help protect your AWS accounts, workloads, and data.

Customers across many industries and geographies use Amazon GuardDuty, including more than 90% of AWS’s 2,000 largest customers. GuardDuty continuously monitors for malicious or unauthorized behavior to help protect your AWS resources, including your AWS accounts, EC2 workloads, access keys, EKS clusters, and data stored in Amazon S3 and Amazon Aurora. GuardDuty can identify unusual or unauthorized activity like crypto-currency mining, access to data stores in S3 from unusual locations, or unauthorized access to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) clusters. GuardDuty Malware Protection adds file scanning for workloads utilizing Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes to detect the presence of malware. GuardDuty continually evolves its techniques to identify indicators of compromise, such as updating machine learning (ML) models, adding new anomaly detections, and growing integrated threat intelligence to identify and prioritize potential threats.

You can begin 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.
