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.

For highly detailed reports of vulnerabilities in an environment, Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose) is top-notch. The data is easily manipulated to get the results you are looking for. Setting up groups for active scans on a schedule has been a great help as well as the ad-hoc reports for any new vulns being reported.

  • Being a vulnerability scanner tool, its purpose is to scan the systems to find the vulnerabilities. We can define the assets like IP address for the scans and it also allows to either schedule the scan at a preferred time or start the scan immediately. Upon completion of the scan, this tool can result provide the details like host type, OS information, hardware address, along with the vulnerabilities.
  • Rapid7 Nexpose has a list of templates to perform the scan. Once the templates are defined then the scans are performed accordingly.
  • It also contains an option to add credentials/authentication using passwords, usernames, private keys to perform the credential-based scans which I think is a great feature.

    I gave it a seven due to the functionality and general ease of use after the initial setup headaches, but compared to Qualys, Rapid7 Nexpose falls short on features and ease of use. Their support drags this rating down a point as well. I have gone weeks with no update on semi-critical issues and typically have to make call after call to get a semi-coherent response.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon AWS

    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

    For reporting, dashboard, content creation etc. Tenable SecurityCenter is the clear winner with over-the-top capabilities in their application. On the agents side this one was easier to implement and way easier to manage.

    • After spending 2 years configuring, tuning, troubleshooting, and ultimately having nothing but regrets, we migrated away from the tool and accepted the loss.
    • Support had a variety of opinions, none of them consistent. No best practices. Lots of secret tricks known by support, none documented or shared until after problems are found.
    • Consulting services are available to come out and do a health check of your deployment, for a fee.
