    BGP Community filtering/grouping in Data Explorer and the BGP reports

    No matter if you are a service provider, a hosting company, an enterprise, etc., BGP visibility is important. We hope that adding a BGP community filtering and grouping option in this release will help our users gain more visibility into how traffic moves through their internal BGP network, their next-hop ASNs, detect peering infrastructure outages, and more.

    Other new features and capabilities include the improved dashboard creating and editing dialog, a grouping by prefix option when setting up alerts, the improved user password length, and complexity constraint, and more.
