Create a Security Profile Group

Use the following steps to create a security profile group and add it to a security policy.
  1. Create a security profile group.
    If you name the group
    default
    , the firewall will automatically attach it to any new rules you create. This is a time saver if you have a preferred set of security profiles that you want to make sure get attached to every new rule.
    1. Select
      Objects
      Security Profile Groups
      and
      Add
      a new security profile group.
    2. Give the profile group a descriptive
      Name
      , for example, Threats.
    3. If the firewall is in Multiple Virtual System Mode, enable the profile to be
      Shared
      by all virtual systems.
    4. Add existing profiles to the group.
