New AWS GuardDuty capabilities secure container, database, serverless workloads

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has added three new capabilities to its threat detection service Amazon GuardDuty. The new features expand GuardDuty protection to container runtime behavior, as well as database and serverless environments, strengthening customer security through enhanced coverage, AWS said.

GuardDuty is part of a broad set of AWS security services that help customers identify potential security risks. It uses machine learning and integrated threat intelligence to detect suspicious data access, potential Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) compromise, and malware.

The three new capabilities are EKS Runtime Monitoring, RDS Protection, and Lambda Protection. These have been added to the hundreds of features already available within GuardDuty and can be enabled with no other requirements or prerequisites, according to AWS.
