What is Amazon GuardDuty EKS Protection

In cybersecurity, there is an ancient saying that goes, "You need to be correct every time. Only once does the attacker need to be correct. Cybersecurity experts must continually be prepared to respond to these risks since cybercriminals are constantly searching for new attack routes. We rely on automatic threat detection because it is impractical to do this with only human power.

Systems like this are made to keep an eye on your network or cloud deployment and detect suspicious or malicious traffic. Following that, it can either employ pre-established rules to block or isolate these problematic locations or, in some situations, flag the incursion for additional examination by a cybersecurity expert.

Additionally, the system use machine learning to more accurately identify possible attacks over time, and it provides security professionals with an integrated threat intelligence picture of their infrastructure at a glance.
