@davidvasandani just used it for my soc2 audit

Whoa! How’d it go?

@davidvasandani @Erik Osterman prowler is a decent tool. we were asked to use it for our soc2 audit. It’s definitely not a super robust tool, but it does the job. We had a couple use cases where we had false negatives. The tool just greps for “true” and we had a client with the word “true” in it’s name where we got some false negatives on. Also after doing key rotations, we ended up with a ton of fails because the keys hadn’t been used yet (because we had just finished our key rotations!)
