How to create Policy and apply to specific Groups

02-04-2020 12:31:07

Description :

Seqrite Endpoint Security allows the administrators to create policies that help centrally control and manage the users belonging to a group.

You can create a policy about permission to visit only certain Web sites, scan their systems regularly and implement a policy for email communication. You can also restrict usage of certain applications and USB-based devices. The Manage Policies feature gives you the flexibility and control over creating new policies and modifying or removing an existing policy. Different protection policies can be created for different groups for better control.

Policies may include different client settings and scan schedules. Once a policy is created, it can be easily applied to a group. The users under a group or a subgroup will inherit the same policy. A group is nothing but a department in an organization. You should create groups before you create a policy setting. You can also view the policy status i.e. Applied, Pending or Failed on each client, this status can also be exported in CSV format.
