User Session Monitoring and Recording for Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0
Monitor user activity. Detect anomalies. Respond to incidents. ALL-IN-ONE
Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0 provide powerful desktop virtualization services but don’t offer any built-in tools for managing insider risks. Thus, if any insider-related cybersecurity incident occurs within a virtual desktop space, you won’t be able to detect it in time and collect cybersecurity evidence.
To secure your corporate data and resources from malicious or negligent insiders, leverage the capabilities of Ekran System — a robust insider risk management solution. Ekran System will help you monitor user activity and record user sessions on cloud desktops provided by Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0.
