AWS GuardDuty is a continuous security monitoring service. Amazon GuardDuty can help to identify unexpected and potentially unauthorized or malicious activity in your AWS environment.

What can Zenduty do for GuardDuty users?

With GuardDuty’s Integration, Zenduty sends new GuardDuty alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the GuardDuty alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific GuardDuty alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
