Amazon Inspector now supports Windows operating system (OS) for continual software vulnerability scanning of EC2 workloads

Inspector has added Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, and 2019, 2022 support for continual EC2 vulnerability scanning. Customers that have Inspector EC2 scanning already enabled and the AWS Systems Manager (SSM) agent installed and configured, do not need to take any additional actions. Windows instances will now automatically and continually be scanned for software vulnerabilities and unintended network exposure. New customers can get started with Inspector with a single click in the AWS Management Console to start assessing for software vulnerabilities in their EC2 instances, both Windows and Linux, along with their container images in the Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR). A complete list of operating systems supported by Inspector can be found here.
