My older post about Prowler can be found here. This post is about an update made to the AWS CIS Benchmark Tool - Prowler 1.3!
> Prowler is a tool for AWS security assessment, auditing and hardening. It follows guidelines of the CIS Amazon Web Services Foundations Benchmark. It covers hardening and security best practices for all AWS regions related to identity and access management, logging, monitoring and networking. With Prowler you can get a colourish or monochrome report, get a CSV format report for diff, run specific checks without having to run the entire report and check multiple AWS accounts in parallel.
This release has bug fixes and new features. The earlier version had 52 checks. But now, we have 3 additional checks! These checks are NOT a part of the CIS benchmark for AWS. However, these additional checks improve the information gathered from each account and are helpful to get to know each AWS account set up and discover problems with them. In detail:
Prowler 1.3 (prowler-1.3.tar.gz/prowler-1.3.zip) can be downloaded here.
