The Cost Optimization Add-on has been deprecated for new Conformity users with effect from April 2020.

Trend Micro Cloud One™ – Conformity provides cost breakdown and trend data for your AWS Account or Master Billing Account. This data will allow you to see how your costs have changed over time and which factors e.g. which services, are the main drivers of cost changes. Such data can be used for forecasting costs into the future.

Conformity provides multiple features for understanding your cost breakdown and evolution. Breakdown of costs can be viewed by:

  1. Service
  2. Environment
  3. Owner
  4. Tags - these are user configurable
