Use Device Groups in Policies and Aliases

Mobile Security enables you to block traffic from Android and iOS devices that are not compliant with the compliance settings you specify for your network. To control traffic to and from Android and iOS devices, you can also use Device Groups in policies and aliases. Even if you do not enable Mobile Security, the Firebox can identify Android and iOS devices. This means that you can add Device Groups in policies even if you do not enable Mobile Security on your Firebox.

Your Firebox has three predefined Device Groups for mobile devices.

  • Any-iOS — All iOS devices
  • Any-Android — All Android devices
  • Any-Mobile — All iOS and Android devices

Mobile devices are added to these Device Groups dynamically as the mobile devices connect to your network. You cannot edit these Device Groups and you cannot see a list of members. You can see which Device Groups each mobile device is a member of from the Mobile Security and Network Discovery Dashboard pages in Fireware Web UI. For more information, see Mobile Security and Network Discovery.

You can also add a Device Group as a member of an alias, and then specify that alias in policies on your Firebox.
