Alert Logic's ability to secure Amazon Web Services (AWS) Fargate workloads includes deployment of the Alert Logic agent container. The agent container is deployed as a side car to each AWS Fargate task that a user wishes to protect in order to gather specific types of data. Alert Logic supports the collection of two data types through AWS Fargate:
- Network traffic: Alert Logic will capture the network traffic destined to and from a protected task definition in order to do packet inspection for the purpose of identifying attacks with Alert Logic's intrusion detection capability.
- Log data: Alert Logic currently collects syslog from AWS Fargate tasks.
Note: System, event, and application logs that cannot be gathered by syslog are not yet supported.
