Show or Hide the Default Policy Rules

The Endpoint Security Manager security policy comes preconfigured with rules that protect against attacks that leverage common software vulnerabilities, exploits, and attack vectors.
When configuring new rules, you can inherit the behavior from the preceding rule in the rule hierarchy or you can override settings as needed to customize your organization’s security policy.
To reduce the number of rules you see in your security policy, the default rules are collapsed under a single default policy.
  • Show Default Rules
    To expand and view the default policy rules, select Show Default Rules from the action menu manage-hidden-menu-icon.png at the top of the page.
  • Hide Default Rules
    To collapse the list of rules, select Hide Default Rules from the action menu manage-hidden-menu-icon.png at the top of the page.
  • Modify a Default Rule
    To override a default rule, you can clone the rule and edit the settings. In the case of similar rules, the more recent rule takes precedence over the older rule.
