Customers can now assess their EC2 workloads running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, Debian 10, and Windows Server 2019 for CVEs and external network accessibility using Inspector. Amazon Inspector is available in the following 14 regions: US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Northern California), US West (Oregon), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), EU (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), AWS GovCloud (US-West), and AWS GovCloud (US-East).  

Amazon Inspector is an automated security assessment service that helps improve the security and compliance of applications deployed on AWS. Amazon Inspector automatically assesses applications for exposure, vulnerabilities, deviations from best practices, and unintended network accessibility of your Amazon EC2 instances. After performing an assessment, Amazon Inspector produces a detailed list of security findings that can be reviewed directly or as part of detailed assessment reports which are available via the Amazon Inspector console or API.
