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 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.
