  • Flow Analytics Dashboard (Enterprise Edition)

This feature is available for the Enterprise License users only.

  • AWS Enhancement (Enterprise Edition)

    • The Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) dashboard is enhanced to show a topology of the security posture of the VPC and make security group troubleshooting easier.

This feature is available for the Enterprise License users only.
