Security groups now generally available

Quick launch summary 

We’re making security groups generally available. Security groups help you easily regulate, audit, and monitor groups used for permission and access control purposes by simply adding the security label. See our beta announcement for more details and use cases for security groups

We’ve recently announced several other features that can help you better manage groups in your organization and improve your security posture. These include group membership expiration and the indirect membership visibility and membership hierarchy APIs
