Detect public
database exposure with Observa.

We connect to your AWS account and alert you when you've accidentally made a database public.

Easy to start

Connect your AWS account and start monitoring in as little as 2 minutes.

Immensely flexible

We don't care if you use K8S, RDS, EC2, etc. We look at your entire public attack surface and find any database that will listen.

Low volume, high signal

We do one thing and we do it well. Since most companies should never expose a database to the public internet you can expect a low volume of alerts.

We catch the big mistakes
before the bad guys.

We continuously monitor your AWS accounts for all public IP addresses being used by your team.

Phased scanning

Every IP address we discover is scanned using Nmap Security Scanner to find open ports.

Service fingerprinting

Open ports are fingerprinted to find out what is listening on the other side.

Fair, simple pricing.

Most users have less than 30 public IP addresses in their AWS accounts. If that's you, the standard plan is the way to go.

$ 15 /mo

Up to 30 public IP addresses

Continuous scanning of attack surface

For larger cloud deployments we can create a custom pricing plan.

Start with a 14-day free trial on the standard plan. We'll work out the rest later.

You can click the chat bubble in the lower right-hand corner or email [email protected] to get in touch.

We look forward to talking!

Do I need a credit card to start?

Nope! We only need an email to secure your account. We'll bug you about paying after your trial.


How do you access my AWS account?

We will give you a simple way to create a role in your account for Observa. You will only be granting us read-only permissions to the EC2 service. You can cancel your account at any time, and you can revoke those permissions on your end at any time.


Aren't there already ways to do this?

Probably! But if you aren't using them yet there's probably a reason. Observa is designed to give you the most bang for your buck (and time). You can be done setting us up faster than you can brew a pot of coffee.


Which databases do you detect?

This list is always growing, but some examples are: PostgreSQL, MySQL, MSSQL, Redis, Neo4j, and MongoDB.
