Today, AWS announces a new summary page in the Amazon GuardDuty console to help you more quickly identify and take action on the highest-priority findings across your AWS environment. The summary page presents trends of findings over time, a breakdown of findings by severity and finding type, and top finding volume resources such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) databases, AWS Lambda functions, or Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) clusters. If you are operating in a multi-account environment, the new summary page consolidates findings from across the organization, and helps you to more quickly identify top-impacted accounts. 

Customers across many industries and geographies use GuardDuty, including more than 90% of AWS’s 2,000 largest customers. GuardDuty is a threat detection service that continuously monitors your AWS accounts and workloads for malicious activity, including recent enhancements that add EKS Runtime Monitoring, RDS Protection, and Lambda Protection. If you’re new to GuardDuty, you can try it at no cost for 30 days on the AWS Free Tier.
