About AWS CloudTrail

AWS CloudTrail is a cloud-based solution that helps businesses manage and view all the events and activities across AWS accounts on a centralized platform. Professionals can detect threats, vulnerabilities, or anomalous behavior across accounts, including an increase in resource provisioning or other available services.

AWS CloudTrail allows organizations to centralize log files and encrypt them to secure confidential information and prevent unauthorized data exploitation. Managers can conduct security analysis, ensure compliance with various regulatory standards and perform troubleshooting operations.

AWS CloudTrail integrates with Amazon CloudWatch Events, which enables businesses to configure workflows according to requirements.

Robust Cloud activity auditing and alert tool

Used to audit the activities on the cloud devices and alert for services on a threshold setup once breached. Storing of logs easily in S3. Amazing analytics provided by the trace logging.

Pros

The smart feature of managing each device being run on the cloud and the alerting capability of the tool.

Cons

The graphs could be better and integration with various other tools could be more versatile. Cost could be lower.

Reasons for Choosing AWS CloudTrail

Feature and use of AWs services made it a natural choice over Azure.

Best Compliance and audit tool

Awesome, our SOX audits with KPMG have become much smoother after we started using this software

Pros

I like the way in which AWS Cloudtrail helps in compliance with various SOX audit protocols which leads to higher governance standards. It also helps in troubleshooting issues with much easiness. Also it is very easy to keep all the records related to changes without too much effort.

Cons

The Cost is on a higher side, if the cost is rationalized with other audit trail software's, it might become a market leader

Reasons for Switching to AWS CloudTrail

It was a orgnaisation's decision

The world's most used cloud

Pros

The free layer of aws has a year, in that year there is a great opportunity to develop many projects, most of the functions of the amazon cloud are pay-per-use, which allows control over finances, plus this cloud is the most used in the world, so it is a software that has a great documentation and tutorials.

Cons

For professional and employability use, certification is required, which may discourage some people, and its very broad portfolio can seem overwhelming.
