Security Monkey

This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Security Monkey is another tool in Netflix’s Simian Army, which is a suite of tools designed to ensure that systems are being built in a resilient fashion. As well as providing a (configurable) assessment of any potential security vulnerabilities in your AWS setup, it can also be used to monitor changes on an ongoing basis, alerting different groups as required. It does overlap in some ways with AWS’ own Trusted Advisor Report and CloudTrail service, as it was developed prior to both these services being made generally available, but its capabilities do go beyond these offerings. If either of those services don’t quite meet your requirements, Security Monkey is worth a look.
