Security Profile Group

A security profile group is a set of security profiles that can be treated as a unit and then easily added to security policies. Profiles that are often assigned together can be added to profile groups to simplify the creation of security policies. You can also setup a default security profile group—new security policies will use the settings defined in the default profile group to check and control traffic that matches the security policy. Name a security profile group default to allow the profiles in that group to be added to new security policies by default. This allows you to consistently include your organization’s preferred profile settings in new policies automatically, without having to manually add security profiles each time you create new rules.
For recommendations on the best-practice settings for security profiles, see Create Best Practice Security Profiles.
The following sections show how to create a security profile group and how to enable a profile group to be used by default in new security policies:
