Policy Management

zGateway has increased productivity for today’s enterprise by enabling more users to gain wider access by virtually connecting to private networks. But while broader access clearly enhances productivity, it also inherently widens network exposure to uncontrolled environments. For Example: If a remote client machine is infected with virus/worms/Trojans/spy-wares, this unwanted traffic is also sent to private network over secured connection. To effectively control these risks, it is no longer enough to manage access by user identity alone. The safety of the user’s end point environment must also be ensured, and enforce access policy based upon solid end point protection.

Host Scan policies enable scanning the endpoints for specified 3rd party products or information.
With zGateway you can create following type of policies:
· Antivirus based
· Antispyware based
· Firewall based
· MAC Address based
· IP Address based

These policies can be then linked with the security profiles described in later section (Device Profile Management).
NB: Endpoint Security is a licensable option on top of zGateway User License. You have to purchase a valid Endpoint License in order to enable this feature within zGateway. Endpoint Security is disabled for Security officers and Administrator logons.

Endpoint Security can only be enabled once you have created a device profile.
