"Inspector - the best tool on security of your application"

What do you like best?

I like how it's easy to set up and there is no need to educate a person to set Amazon Inspector up because it does not require much of the instructions. The documentation is very extensive and there is no additional purpose to look for any other alternatives. Amazon Inspector just does its job the way it is supposed to!

What do you dislike?

There are possible only two things that I can find that leave me little bit concerned about the service. Firstly, first thing which I am not particularly a fan of is lack of some of the custom protection. I would like to see more on that. Secondly, billing for Amazon Inspector is a little bit tricky when you set it up to work with other services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other alternatives to Amazon Inspector. People tend to use Amazon Shield or Amazon WAF for the same purpose as Amazon Inspector. But I definitely suggest to get to know your use cases per each of Amazon services to make a conscious choice regarding any protection. There is definitely a great value in combining using services. For any of DDoS protection I recommend using Amazon Shield and Amazon WAF. For setting up your architecture right, Amazon Inspector is a great choice along with Amazon Trusted Advisor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to improve the security and compliance of applications deployed in the cloud. Amazon Inspector automatically assesses applications for vulnerabilities or deviations from best practices.

"AWS STORAGE"

What do you like best?

My coworker loves that we are to use people to "pretend" to develop co. website and store doc., but honestly was extra costly that way, so showing that we had I had resources that was done coworkers, no two ways around it. The world watched uncover extreme determination of economic dollars hopefully change security laws.

What do you dislike?

I don't like anything about having to install exe. to my desktop because of "breaching" as I install and reinstall just to get it right - my excuse.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use for our inspecting which I use as an excuse. Feel bad about it now, but worked for over 20 years.

"Inspector is as good start for vulnerability scanning, butr far from perfect"

What do you like best?

pretty hands off approach to vulnerability scanning. Get industry standard scans out of the box

What do you dislike?

inability to aggregate findings across accounts

CIS-SCAN does not allow you to choose the CIS CAT level to run. The scanner is unuseable to us, as our compliance only requires level 1, not level 2, so we end up with a ton of spurrious findings we dont care about

Would be nice to have additional filters, like"only scan instances which have been up more than n minutes"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

vulnerability scans for compliance

The absence of a few of the custom-made defense and that is a bit difficult when you set it approximately deal with other services.
