AWS CloudTrail

AWS CloudTrail is an amazing AWS service which is used for auditing purposes. CloudTrail can record user activities, network events, and analyzed these data directly from the CloudTrail dashboard. AWS CloudTrail also has the ability to track API calls. The CoudTrail logging will show the API flexibility and show the insights of these AWS API calls.

Nessus

Nessus is well suited for performing vulnerability assessments on small and medium scale applications. Its best suited for internal applications within a firm to find its security gaps.Not well suited for large, global applications. Better tools than Nessus are available in the market, which can do the job faster and better. Since large data sets boil the tool down to very slow pace testing, it is not well suited for enormous applications.

Cons

AWS CloudTrail

  • It could be more commercial
Paulo Henrique Orind | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nessus

  • Starting with the cost of Nessus, though it is available for free also it has some restrictions for the free version. Nessus essential which is a free version does not allow to perform internal/external PCI scan policies, config audits which I think is a drawback. As many security researchers, small organizations use this tool for vulnerability scans I think some additional features should be added into free version as Nessus professional version is not cost-friendly for everyone.
  • I think Nessus can improve the way it shows scan status while the scan is ongoing. Once scans are started and running, it sometimes failed to show exactly how much percent of scan is completed, for example, it shows scan status from 0% completed to 100% completed directly without showing the in-between completion percentage.

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
