Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS)

Version: AWS Log Forwarder v1.0.10 and above.

Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) is a web service that enables you to build distributed web-enabled applications. Applications can use Amazon SNS to push real-time notification messages to subscribers over multiple delivery protocols.

Netsurion Open XDR monitors events from Amazon SNS by parsing the AWS CloudTrail logs and triggers from Amazon EventBridge. Dashboards and reports in Netsurion Open XDR allow you to monitor overall actions related to the Amazon SNS service to keep you informed about its activities. It will trigger alerts whenever an action that is critical to the service is carried out.

For a new instance, integrate the AWS instance to Netsurion Open XDR using the Netsurion integrator AWS Lambda function, which will in turn deliver logs to Netsurion Open XDR from Amazon Web Services. For an already-integrated AWS instance, make sure to update to AWS Log Forwarder to v1.0.10 or above.

The following are the key Data Source Integration available in Netsurion Open XDR.
