Improved and updated security menu in the Admin Console

Quick launch summary 

We have updated the “Security” category within the left-hand navigation of the Admin console by: 
  • Adding navigation access to security features previously only accessible from the Security settings page. 
  • Adding Authentication, Access & data controls, and Security center subcategories making it easier to find the features available. 
  • Updating the name of the Security Settings page to Overview. 
We hope these improvements will make it easier for admins to discover, access, and manage our suite of security tools.
