Managing Firewall Access Policy from the Security Management Portal R12.30
The Security Management Portal (SMP) R12.30 supports managing the Firewall Access Policy (Rule Base) for:
- Small and Medium Business Appliances (600 and 700)
- Branch Office Appliances (1100 and 1400)
- Ruggedized Appliances (1200R)
On the Security Software Blades -> Access Policy page, SMP administrator can create rules for a specified plan or gateway. These rules will set policy for:
- Outgoing access to the Internet
- Incoming, internal and VPN traffic
SMP administrator can configure pre-local rules or post-local rules:
Pre-local rules run before the local manual rules (which are created in the local settings of the Firewall Software Blades). A gateway local administrator cannot create manual rules to override pre-local rules configured by the SMP administrator.
Post-local rules run after the local manual rules. The SMP administrator configures recommended policy, and the local administrator can override it by creating manual rules.
Note: The gateway local administrator can only edit the manual rules. Pre/post-local rules are locked.
For more information about this feature, refer to SMP R12.30 Administration Guide.
This feature is available on SMB gateways since R77.20.70.
