Security Monkey monitors your AWS and GCP accounts for policy changes and alerts on insecure configurations. Support is available for OpenStack public and private clouds. Security Monkey can also watch and monitor your GitHub organizations, teams, and repositories.

It provides a single UI to browse and search through all of your accounts, regions, and cloud services. The monkey remembers previous states and can show you exactly what changed, and when.

Security Monkey can be extended with custom account types, custom watchers, custom auditors, and custom alerters.

It works on CPython 2.7. It is known to work on Ubuntu Linux and OS X.

Special Note:

Netflix's support for Security Monkey has been reduced for minor bug fixes only. That being said, we are happy to accept and merge pull-requests that fix bugs and add new features as appropriate.


If you are upgrading to 1.0 for the first time, please review the Quickstart and the Autostarting documents as there is a new deployment pattern for Security Monkey. Also, new IAM permissions have been added.
