Triggers

Create triggers for security rules to correlate incoming security events from network devices. When an incoming security event satisfies a trigger, all security rules using the trigger are evaluated in order of their rank. A security alarm is created based on the first security rule which also matches its optional user/host profile. If no security rules are matched, an alarm is not created. An optional security action will be associated to the alarm and, if selected, will be executed automatically.
