After you create a group and assign computers and devices to the group, you configure security settings and assign them to the group. You cannot edit default settings. You can create a copy and then make changes to the settings. The final step is to deploy the security settings to the computers and devices in the group.

For information on how to create a group, go to Manage Groups.

The Settings page has two panes. The left pane groups security settings by type, and the right pane displays the available security settings profiles and profile details. For more information on security settings profiles, go to Manage Settings Profiles.

To quickly find a settings profile, enter the name or partial name in the Search bar on the Settings page.
