Configuring global security profiles

You can create two types of security profiles for VDOMs: per-VDOM profiles that are only available to a specific VDOM, and global security profiles which are available for use by multiple VDOMs. You can use both types of profiles for your configuration.

Global profiles are available for the following security features:

  • Antivirus
  • Application control
  • Data leak prevention
  • Intrusion prevention
  • Web filtering

Each security feature has at least one default global profile. Global profiles are identified by the “g-” at the beginning of the profile name.

Some security profile features, such as URL filters, are not available for use in a global profile.

  1. To edit the default global web filter, go to Global > Security Profiles > Web Filter and edit g-default.

  2. Right-click the Bandwidth Consuming category and select Block.
