AWS Security Hub performs security best practice checks and ingests security findings from AWS security services and partners. It combines the results of the security checks with findings from other services and partner security tools to give you a comprehensive view of your security posture, dashboards that aggregate security findings, and remediation recommendations for identified issues. Security Hub is priced along two dimensions: the quantity of security checks and the quantity of ingested findings each month.
Security check pricing: Prepackaged security standards are available for AWS Security Hub, such as the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark, AWS Foundational Security Best Practices, and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). These help evaluate the security posture of your AWS accounts and resources. These prepackaged standards are collections of controls that Security Hub continuously evaluates to identify if any accounts or resources deviate from the defined security best practices. The evaluation of a control against a single AWS resource is referred to as a security check, and it results in a finding that shows the result of the check. You are charged per number of checks per account per region. You are only charged once for a check when identical controls that are common across different standards are evaluated against the same resource.
AWS Security Hub’s security checks leverage configuration items recorded by AWS Config. AWS Config is required for these security checks, and configuration items are priced separately from Security Hub. Please see Config pricing for details. Security Hub customers are not charged separately for any Config rules enabled by Security Hub. The Config rules enabled by Security Hub are referred to as service-linked rules.
Finding ingestion events: AWS Security Hub ingests findings from various AWS services and partner products. Finding ingestions include both new findings and updates to existing findings. You are not charged for finding ingestions associated with Security Hub's security checks. You are charged per number of findings sent to Security Hub per account per region each month. Security Hub offers a perpetual free tier of 10,000 findings per account per Region per month.
