Full Protection

In Full Protection mode, you can manage an AWS Security GroupClosed A set of access control rules that acts as a virtual firewall for your virtual machine instances to control incoming and outgoing traffic. only through CloudGuard. CloudGuard detects attempts to change a security group from the AWS environment (such as the AWS console), which starts Tamper Protection and can send an alert/notification. CloudGuard overrides the change that is made and reverts to the definition of the Security Group defined in CloudGuard.

The alerts and notifications initiated from Tamper Protection occur when you start Full Protection for the necessary regions in your cloud account. CloudGuard locks down the configuration of the security groups in that region to make sure that the security group stays correctly configured.
