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

Regular monitoring of AWS expenses for unexpected fluctuations is essential for you to identify any unusual usage patterns that may require corrective actions.

You have the option of setting a Cost fluctuation (defined as a %) for your cloud account and receive notifications whenever the expenses exceed the specified threshold in comparison to the last month. You can define fluctuation for various parameters such as services, environment, roles and tags, and also for the combination of any of these together. Cost fluctuation alert notifications, which are dependent on the risk level that you choose and communication channels, will be sent when the current month spend exceeds the specified limit of the last month.
