Extracted from above links, "Agentless services, on the other hand, talk directly to the underlying cloud platform (e.g., AWS, Azure)...",

Q1:
Is AWS' AV subscription now an agentless AV?  Is this the agentless Deep Security?

Q2:
If there are appliance VMs (eg: highly stripped-down Linux), is it the way to go to
adopt agentless (as we may subscribe to say Commzgate SMS or cloud-based
services) AV/end-point IPS as agents can't run/install in the stripped-down guest
OS?

Q3:
in the case of AWS' AV/IPS service (ie the 2nd link above), is this an SaaS of FaaS
(Function as a Service)?
