Objects > Security Profile Groups

The firewall supports the ability to create Security Profile groups, which specify sets of Security Profiles that can be treated as a unit and then added to security policies. For example, you can create a threats Security Profile group that includes profiles for Antivirus, Anti-Spyware, and Vulnerability Protection and then create a Security policy rule that includes the threats profile.
Antivirus, Anti-Spyware, Vulnerability Protection, URL filtering, and file blocking profiles that are often assigned together can be combined into profile groups to simplify the creation of security policies.
To define a new Security Profile, select ObjectsSecurity Profiles.
The following table describes the Security Profile settings:
Security Profile Group Settings
Description
Name
Enter the profile group name (up to 31 characters). This name appears in the profiles list when defining security policies. The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Shared
Select this option if you want the profile group to be available to:
  • Every virtual system (vsys) on a multi-vsys firewall. If you clear this selection, the profile group will be available only to the Virtual System selected in the Objects tab.
  • Every device group on Panorama. If you clear this selection, the profile group will be available only to the Device Group selected in the Objects tab.
Disable override (Panorama only)
Select this option to prevent administrators from overriding the settings of this Security Profile group object in device groups that inherit the object. This selection is cleared by default, which means administrators can override the settings for any device group that inherits the object.
Profiles
Select an Antivirus, Anti-Spyware, Vulnerability Protection, URL filtering, and/or file blocking profile to be included in this group. Data filtering profiles can also be specified in Security Profile groups. Refer to Objects > Security Profiles > Data Filtering.
