“Guard is a fantastic compliance tool for the Amazon Selling Partner Audit. It only takes a few minutes to set up and connect to your AWS infrastructure. Before we started using Guard, we were paying for several third party tools to stay in compliance with Amazon policy. Now, Guard ensures that we're in compliance with a fraction of the effort and cost.”
