Security Hub Debuts
November 29, 2018
Security Hub is a new service in Preview that gives you a comprehensive
view of your high-priority security alerts and compliance status across
AWS accounts. With Security Hub, you now have a single place that
aggregates, organizes, and prioritizes your security alerts, or
findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon
Inspector, and Amazon Macie, as well as from AWS Partner solutions.
AWS Security Hub reduces the effort of collecting and prioritizing
security findings across accounts, from AWS services, and AWS partner
tools. The service ingests data using a standard findings format,
eliminating the need for time-consuming data conversion efforts. It then

Security Hub, you can run automated, continuous account-level
configuration and compliance checks based on industry standards and best
practices, such as the Center for Internet Security (CIS) AWS
Foundations Benchmark. These checks provide a compliance score and
identify specific accounts and resources that require attention.
Integrated dashboards bring together your security findings across
accounts to show you the current security and compliance status. Now you
can easily spot trends, identify potential issues, and take the
necessary next steps. For example, you can send findings to ticketing,
chat, email, or automated remediation systems using integration with
Amazon CloudWatch Events.
