Amazon GuardDuty expands threat detection coverage in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, to continuously monitor network activity logs, starting with VPC Flow Logs, generated from the execution of Amazon Lambda functions to detect threats to Lambda such as functions maliciously repurposed for unauthorized cryptocurrency mining, or compromised Lambda functions that are communicating with known threat actor servers. GuardDuty Lambda Protection can be enabled with a few steps in the GuardDuty console, and using Amazon Organizations, can be centrally-enabled for all existing and new accounts in an organization.

You can begin your 30-day free trial of Amazon GuardDuty with a single-click in the Amazon Web Services Management Console. To receive programmatic updates on new GuardDuty features and threat detections, subscribe to the Amazon GuardDuty SNS topic.
