A security policy is a set of rules and actions that you define to balance access and constraints so you can mitigate malicious attacks and provide security for your networks. 

To create a security policy, complete the following:

  1. From the Cloud Services Portal, click Policies -> Security Policies.
  2. On the Security Policies page, click Create Security Policy at the top Action bar. The Create New Security Policy wizard appears.
  3. On the General page, complete the following:
    • Name: Enter a name for the security policy. Ensure that you enter a unique name for each security policy. This is a required field.
    • Description: Enter a brief description of the security policy. You can enter up to 256 characters. This is not a required field, but it is recommended. 
    • Precedence: Enter the precedence order for this policy, or use the arrows in the field to choose the precedence order for the policy. If you do not set a precedence order, the system will set this policy as the last on the list.
    • Geolocation: Toggle the Geolocation switch from Disable to Enable in order to enable the geolocation for the security policy, or accept the default disabled configuration for the security policy to preserve privacy. For more information about geolocation support, see Enabling and Disabling Geolocation for a Security Policy.
  4. Click Next.
  5. On the Network Scope page, define your network scope for this security policy. For more information, see Configuring Network Scopes.
  6. Click Next.
  7. On the Policy Rules page, add policy rules, and set their actions and precedence. For more information, see Adding Policy Rules and Setting Precedence.
  8. Click Next.
  9. On the Bypass Codes page, add bypass codes to your security policy. For more information, see Adding Bypass Codes to a Security Policy.
  10. Click Next.
  11. On the Summary page, review your configuration. This page displays the configuration details. You can click the icon next to a network scope or policy rule to view the details in the Selected panel. Before saving the security policy, you can make modifications by clicking the respective pages on the left navigation panel. You can also click the Back button to navigate back to previous steps in the Create New Security Policy wizard.
