Adding a policy

Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager comes with a default policy for each type of protection. If you need to customize a policy, you add one and edit it. You can create multiple versions of each type of policy.

Symantec recommends that you test all new policies before you use them in a production environment.

To add a new policy

  1. In the console, click Policies.

  2. On the Policies page, select a policy type, and then click the link to add a new policy.

  3. Modify the policy settings to increase or decrease protection.

  4. Click OK to save the policy.

  5. Optionally assign the new policy to a group.

    You can assign a new policy to a group during or after policy creation. The new policy replaces the currently assigned policy of the same protection type.

    See Assigning a policy to a group.
