After you sync your public cloud account with the Armor Management Portal (AMP), you can use the Virtual Machines screen to view the instances associated with your public cloud account.

Additionally, the Virtual Machines screen will display the security status of these instances. All instances for the synced public cloud account will be displayed; however, instances without the Anywhere agent will be labeled as Unprotected

To sync your public cloud account with AMP, see Cloud Connections.

The Cloud Connection screen simply lists the synced public cloud account; the Virtual Machines screen lists all the instances listed in that public cloud account.
