EMS Administration Guide

Adding an endpoint policy

To add an endpoint policy:
  1. Go to Endpoint Policy > Manage Policies.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Complete the following fields:

    Endpoint policy name

    Enter the desired name for the endpoint policy.

    Endpoint domains

    Select the domains to apply the policy to.

    Endpoint workgroups

    Select the workgroups of endpoints to apply the policy to.

    Endpoint profile

    Include an endpoint profile in the policy. From the dropdown list, select the desired endpoint profile.

    Endpoint profile (Off-net)

    Include an endpoint profile in the policy to apply to the endpoint when it is off-net according to the on-net detection rules configured in this policy. For example, you may want to apply a more restrictive profile to the endpoint when it is determined to be off-net. From the dropdown list, select the desired endpoint profile.

    If including an off-net profile in a policy, it is highly recommended to also include on-net detection rules in the policy. Otherwise, EMS may not apply on-net and off-net profiles as desired.

    On-Net Detection Rules

    Select the on-net detection rules to include in the policy. You can select multiple rules.

    You must have already created on-net detection rules to include them in an endpoint policy. See On-net Detection Rules.

    Telemetry gateway list

    Include a Telemetry gateway list in the policy. From the dropdown list, select the desired Telemetry gateway list.

    You must have already created a Telemetry gateway list to include one in an endpoint policy. See Creating a Telemetry gateway list.

    Comments

    Enter any comments desired for the endpoint policy.

    Enable the policy

    Toggle to enable or disable the endpoint policy. You can enable or disable the policy at a later time from Endpoint Policy > Manage Policies.

  4. Click Save. You can view the newly created policy on the Endpoint Policy > Manage Policies page.

    On the Endpoints pane, you can see that endpoints that belong to the All Groups/Seattle/HR group have the endpoint profile and Telemetry gateway list configured in the endpoint policy (Seattle_HR and FGT_Seattle_floor2, respectively) applied:

    EMS pushes these settings to the endpoint with the next Telemetry communication.

    In this example, endpoints in the All Groups/Seattle/HR group are applicable for the Seattle_HR policy. If both the Seattle_general policy (applied to the All Groups/Seattle group) and the Seattle_HR policy (applied to the All Groups/Seattle/HR group) are enabled, EMS applies only the Seattle_HR policy to the All Groups/Seattle/HR group, since the Seattle_HR policy is the most specific policy that is applicable for that group. If the Seattle_HR policy is disabled, EMS applies the Seattle_general policy to endpoints in the All Groups/Seattle/HR group.
