Assigning policies

Assigning policies to endpoints 

You can manage security settings on endpoints using policies.

From the Network page you can view, change and assign policies for each endpoint or group of endpoints.

Note

Security settings are available for managed endpoints only. To easier view and manage security settings, you can filter the network inventory only by managed endpoints.

To view the policy assigned to a particular endpoint:

  1. Go to the Network page.

  2. Select the group that you want from the left-side pane. All endpoints from the selected group are displayed in the right-side pane table.

  3. Click the name of the managed endpoint you are interested in. An information window will appear.

  4. Under General tab, in the Policy section, click the name of the current policy to view its settings.

  5. You can change security settings as needed, provided the policy owner has allowed other users to make changes to that policy.

    Note

    Any change you make will affect all the endpoints assigned with the same policy.

    For more information about changing policy settings, refer to this section.

To assign a policy to a computer or a group:

  1. Go to the Network page.

  2. Select the group that you want from the left-side pane. All endpoints from the selected group are displayed in the right-side pane table.

  3. Select the check box of the endpoint or group that you want. You can select one or several objects of the same type only from the same level.

  4. Click the policy.png Assign policy button at the upper side of the table.

  5. Make the necessary settings in the Policy assignment window.
