Summer '21 Release
AWS EC2 IMDSv2 Supported
Cloudaware supports AWS EC2 Instance Metadata Service Version 2 (IMDSv2). IMDSv2 protects against Website Application Firewalls, open reverse proxies, SSRF vulnerabilities and open layer 3 firewalls and NATs.
If version 1 is disabled, Cloudaware switches to version 2 to ensure security for your AWS EC2 instances. You can build reports in Cloudaware to check on AWS IMDS version on your cloud servers.
Cloudaware List Views
Customers can control access to list view creation in their Cloudaware account. Only those with profiles CloudAware Administrator and CloudAware Collector Only, or a user with custom permission listViewEditor can create public list views. The option to create private list views remains without changes.
Cloudaware supports checking whether EBS encryption by default is enabled for AWS account in a current region. To demonstrate this, the following fields are added to the object AWS Account Region:
Default EBS Encryption KMS Alias
Default EBS Encryption KMS Alias ARN
Default EBS Encryption KMS Key
Default EBS Encryption KMS Key ARN
Default EBS Encryption KMS Key ID
The object AWS IAM OpenID Connect Provider has been added.
The object AWS IAM Instance Profile demonstrates the relation to EC2s to let you overview the relationship between IAM Role and all EC2 instances that have it assigned.
New AWS network related objects are added:
Transit Gateway VPC Route Table,
Transit Gateway Peering
Transit Gateway Route Tables
The field IAM Instance Profile ARN is available on AWS EC2 Instance to indicate the relation between EC2 and an assigned IAM role.
S3 Object Lock settings are detected by Cloudaware by using the following fields: Object Lock Enabled, Default Retention Days, Default Retention Mode, Default Retention Years.
The field Bucket Key Enabled is added to S3 Bucket allowing to define whether the bucket is using a S3 Bucket Key, which is a bucket-level key generated by KMS. These keys are used by AWS S3 service to create unique data keys for objects in a bucket, avoiding the need for additional KMS requests. This reduces KMS operations, and as a result, costs.
Athena engine v1 should be deprecated by Amazon in August 2021. Cloudaware added the fields Selected Engine Version and Effective Engine Version to objects AWS Athena Work Group and AWS Query Execution to let customers track Athena engine version.
New utilization metrics showing 30-day data are added to Azure Storage Accounts.
