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 ObjectsSecurity 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.
