Welcome

Security Hub provides you with a comprehensive view of the security state of your Amazon environment and resources. It also provides you with the readiness status of your environment based on controls from supported security standards. Security Hub collects security data from Amazon accounts, services, and integrated third-party products and helps you analyze security trends in your environment to identify the highest priority security issues. For more information about Security Hub, see the Amazon Security Hub User Guide .

When you use operations in the Security Hub API, the requests are executed only in the Amazon Region that is currently active or in the specific Amazon Region that you specify in your request. Any configuration or settings change that results from the operation is applied only to that Region. To make the same change in other Regions, execute the same command for each Region to apply the change to.

For example, if your Region is set to us-west-2, when you use CreateMembers to add a member account to Security Hub, the association of the member account with the administrator account is created only in the us-west-2 Region. Security Hub must be enabled for the member account in the same Region that the invitation was sent from.

The following throttling limits apply to using Security Hub API operations.

  • BatchEnableStandards - RateLimit of 1 request per second, BurstLimit of 1 request per second.

  • GetFindings - RateLimit of 3 requests per second. BurstLimit of 6 requests per second.

  • UpdateFindings - RateLimit of 1 request per second. BurstLimit of 5 requests per second.
