    • Added support for Palo Alto Panorama 8 and additional Arista and Juniper switches enhances visibility across the virtual and physical SDDC infrastructure.
  • Rapid Troubleshooting:
    • Flow analytics such as top talkers and net new activities in the last 24 hours help rapidly troubleshoot network issues.
    • New AWS Security Group widget provides quick troubleshooting of the security posture within AWS infrastructure.
    • Support for NSX-T security groups and firewall rules
  • Open Platform: vRealize Network Insight 3.6 provides public API to integrate data from vRealize Network Insight and drive automated workflows. For example, the recommended firewall rules for an application can be accessed using vRealize Network Insight and programmed into NSX or AWS firewalls.
