Extended Edition New Features

AutoPilot M6 Extended Edition includes a new set of features designed to give users the solution that best fits their needs. These new features include:

  • Configurable business views showing charts and graphs of historical and real-time application performance, enabling users to immediately see the impact application performance has on the business

  • Extended security with Web based security management and support for Kerberos and Microsoft Active Directory.
  • Web Services Integration support.
