While Security policy rules enable you to allow or block traffic on your network,
Security profiles help you define an allow but scan rule, which scans
allowed applications for threats, such as viruses, malware, spyware, and DDOS
attacks. When traffic matches the allow rule defined in the Security policy, the
Security profile(s) that are attached to the rule are applied for further content
inspection rules such as antivirus checks and data filtering.
Security profiles are the only profiles that attach to security policy rules.
Profiles and the policies that they attach to must be of the same type.
Security profiles are not used in the match criteria of a traffic flow. The
Security profile is applied to scan traffic after the application or category is
allowed by the Security policy.
You can use out of the box default Security profiles to begin protecting your network
from threats. See Set Up a Basic Security Policy for
information on using the default profiles in your Security policy.
