Customize Your Security Policy 

Your security policy controls who can get into and out of your network, and where they can go in your network. The configuration file of your XTM device manages the security policies.

When you completed the Quick Setup Wizard, the configuration file that you made was only a basic configuration. You can modify this configuration to align your security policy with the business and security requirements of your company. You can add packet filter and proxy policies to set what you let in and out of your network. Each policy can have an effect on your network. The policies that increase your network security can decrease access to your network. And the policies that increase access to your network can put the security of your network at risk. For more information on policies, see About Policies.

For a new installation, we recommend that you use only packet filter policies until all your systems operate correctly. As necessary, you can add proxy policies.
