- Automated enforcement of organizational approval policies
- Complex, enterprise-level review and approval workflows, including conditional approvals.
- Advanced reports.
- Alerts whenever new versions of open source components are released.
The Premium package is affordably priced at $200 a month, for 5 projects.
