AWS CloudTrail

It is necessary to enable [AWS] Cloudtrail when using AWS in a production environment, otherwise you will not have any idea what is happening within your accounts. Third party monitoring applications will all require [AWS] CloudTrail to be enabled as well. I would not recommend it solely as a monitoring tool, to get the most out of it you must send the logs elsewhere. Either to Cloudwatch logs or a third party product.

GFI LanGuard

-To track the vulnerability level of a windows network.-To push windows and other application updates from a central location.-Produce reports to highlight work being done to protect a network. In some organizations, you may have to prove for audit reasons you are enforcing policies put into place around cyber-security. This software can help you track work done on an ongoing basis for such purposes.

Cons

AWS CloudTrail

  • It could be more commercial

  • It could be a bit of information overload which some things are shown can become noise. Maybe different levels of "security" for lack of a better term may be better where you have a summary vs detailed level when it comes to rating the vulnerability of the entire network.
  • I find I sometimes have issues with PCs on a different network accessed across a VPN where timeouts often occur with very large updates. This aspect can be improved.

I only tried to access there support once and it was a relatively pain-free process. They also have a lot of documentation available online which can be used to learn and tailor the software to suit your needs. It just takes time and effort to plan, execute and monitor going forward.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CloudTrail

The ease of building, implementing and searching AWS CloudTrail is second to none. The JSON file structure that included in CloudTrail in a log format is very useful. The logs will capture a lot of useful data from the API calls that can be used for crafting strong security policies if you choose to do so. This security policies can be implemented via Lambda or CloudWatch Events

WSUS was the other alternative I considered but I believe GFI takes updates, reporting, and functionality to a different level for an enterprise/medium-size business environment.

GFI LanGuard

  • Certainty. It allows you to know where on your network needs attention.
  • Peace of mind. As security professionals, we can only put the necessary things in place to prevent malicious persons from exploiting a network. The software allows you to know whether or not your risk of exploitation is high or low. and if high what to do with it.
