Context-aware features moving to paid license

Some context-aware features in Google Cloud, including the use of device policies to make access decisions, are now included in our BeyondCorp Enterprise product offering.

These features will continue to be available for Access Context Manager free of charge for your organization without a paid license until April 30, 2021. If you choose to adopt the paid BeyondCorp Enterprise license, you will receive new features and capabilities in addition to the existing policies. If you choose not to adopt the new license, existing access policies using device information will be disabled.
