Symantec is an AWS Security Competency Partner that has integrated Amazon’s SSM Agent with their cloud-native Symantec Cloud Workload Protection (CWP) solution, which automates core security controls for AWS workloads, enabling business agility, risk reduction, and cost savings for organizations, while easing DevOps and administrative burdens. Customers can now deploy the CWP agent directly from the CWP console or just use a simple REST API call.
Having to debug a system with logs scattered in different places can make troubleshooting difficult, which is one of the reasons we recommend customers deliver AWS CloudTrail logs to a centralized Amazon S3 bucket. Although aggregating these logs is a big step forward, it still requires something to parse the logs and alert based on anomalies or high-risk API calls. Customers can integrate with solutions such as Datadog, which allows you to configure monitors and send critical change notifications to your team.
