Introduction

Amazon Inspector (target and template) is a security vulnerability assessment service that helps improve the security and compliance of AWS resources.

Amazon Inspector automatically assesses resources for vulnerabilities or deviations from best practices, and then produces a detailed list of security findings prioritized by level of severity. Amazon Inspector includes a knowledge base of hundreds of rules mapped to common security standards and vulnerability definitions. The knowledge base is regularly updated by AWS security researchers.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select Inspector Template or Inspector Target.
