Amazon GuardDuty vs CloudFlare: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon GuardDuty as "Continuous Security Monitoring and Threat Detection". It is a managed threat detection service that continuously monitors for malicious or unauthorized behavior to help you protect your AWS accounts and workloads. It monitors for activity such as unusual API calls or potentially unauthorized deployments that indicate a possible account compromise. It also detects potentially compromised instances or reconnaissance by attackers. On the other hand, CloudFlare is detailed as "The Web Performance & Security Company". Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet.

Some of the features offered by Amazon GuardDuty are:
- Accurate, account-level threat detection
- Continuous monitoring across AWS accounts without added cost and complexity
- Threat detections developed and optimized for the cloud
