Set Up or Override a Default Security Profile Group
Use the following options to set up a default security profile group to be used in new security policies, or to override an existing default group. When an administrator creates a new security policy, the default profile group will be automatically selected as the policy’s profile settings, and traffic matching the policy will be checked according to the settings defined in the profile group (the administrator can choose to manually select different profile settings if desired). Use the following options to set up a default security profile group or to override your default settings.
If no default security profile exists, the profile settings for a new security policy are set to None by default.
- Create a security profile group.
- Select ObjectsSecurity Profile Groups and Add a new security profile group.
- Give the profile group a descriptive Name, for example, Threats.
- If the firewall is in Multiple Virtual System Mode, enable the profile to be Shared by all virtual systems.
- Add existing profiles to the group. For details on creating profiles, see Security Profiles.
- Click OK to save the profile group.
