AWS Security Hub integration

AWS Security Hub is a central place to manage security and compliance across an AWS environment. It aggregates, organizes, and prioritizes security alerts and findings from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie, as well as from third-party security solutions, such as bucketAV.

By integrating bucketAV’s malware scan results into AWS Security Hub, security teams can have a comprehensive view of the security posture of their AWS environment and quickly identify and respond to malware incidents. This helps organizations to reduce the risk of data breaches and to comply with various security and privacy regulations.
