Amazon Web Services Connector

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Connector provides real-time visibility and inventory of EC2 assets in AWS accounts. The AWS connector refreshes every 30 minutes. The licensing implications are as follows:

  • Assets discovered through the connector do not count against the license until and unless the asset is scanned for vulnerabilities. Discovery through the connector is free.
  • Assets discovered through the connector that did become licensed fall off the license the day after the asset was terminated. This event can be observed via the connector.

To analyze assets via an AWS connector:

  1. Configure your AWS account to support your connectors, as described in Configure Amazon Web Services (AWS).
  2. Create your AWS connector, as described in Create an AWS Connector.
