Yah. Openscap is nessus on steroids. I run it on non- region boxes.
Nessus should be able to do the same thing --- assuming joe can install an agent on each
PVS is even more interesting.

Subject: "Publish OpenSCAP scan metrics to CloudWatch and optionally send SNS
Was told about a project that integrates OpenSCAP scanning into AWS CloudWatch. Thought it
was pretty cool & wanted to share:
This openscap-aws rpm is intended to be used on CentOS or Red Hat AWS instances and will
configure them to self-scan each day, publish score metrics to CloudWatch and optionally
report any failures to an SNS topic. As the scan score is a percentage of pass/fail
findings and some tests may not be applicable to your environment the use of a tailoring
file to specify which failures have been accepted by your organization makes this much
more effective because then you can require that scans have a 100% score.
