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.

The tool Titania Nipper is used as a way to improve compliance and risk management, reduce time to market and also provide our customers the needed insight about the possible threats to their network and firewalls. The tool itself we use in conjunction with others, so I can't recommend using only Nipper if a more wide view is needed in terms of vulnerability assessment.

I think in the end, CloudTrail has more features and you can dive deeper inside the logs so it depends on your usage and what you expect in the end to make the right choice, I would say that both tools are really useful and bring a lot of benefits to I.T. companies.

Although Nipper from Titania helps in auditing accurately every device in the network and helps in prioritizing the fixies, it is really useful for the part of the firewall in a network and also for the quick making of reports which are also customizable. But from our experience, the Qualys solution for scanning the networks, although is more costly, it also has more features and options in regards to assessing a network and the elements connected to the network, though it is also somehow less powerful when it comes to creating quick reports. Qualys has a more interface and dashboard approach regarding the results of the scans.

  • We seldom audit the same equipment twice, hence the fixed amount of annual hosts is not very flexible in terms of licensing for our use-case
