7.3 Policies Tab
The policy tab is where you will define your policies. The default policy is to allow all. Users will have no restrictions on websites they can access.
The policy section allows you to add and define the policy’s as to your company internet access policy. The default policy has no restrictions and allows full access to the internet. The policy rule will be implemented from the top down you can click and drag the rules up or down to position as required, bearing in mind that the action taken is read from top to bottom of the policy so always best to have your allow group on the top.
Select the “+Create New Policy” Icon to create a new policy.
Name your policy then select the actions for your policy, let say this is the allowed URLs that users can have access to you would select the allowed sites in URL groups and if you have set a time condition that they site may be accessed you would select the time condition you created and set the action to allow. Save or update web rule.
To deny access you would then select the URL group you created with the list of URL’s that the users may not access and in addition you can then select categories from the blacklists section then in the action section select deny from the drop down. Save or update web rule.
As mentioned in the identities section you will assign the policy you created per identity by clicking on the policy drop down box of that identity, by default the default policy is assigned when you add a identity or to any device that is picked up by the system.
