Create Profiles:

When you create a new profile, the following options can help you to target specific deployments and leverage existing profiles:

  • Deployment Mode
  • Inheritance

Deployment Mode: Digital Vaccines contain deployment settings for filters that address specific types of deployments, such as perimeter, core, datacenter, etc.). When you create a new profile, you can use the default deployment mode or choose from a list of recommended deployment modes. The Deployment Mode setting is available only for Digital Vaccine versions that support this option.

Inheritance: Profiles can be set up with a hierarchy and profile attributes can be inherited. Profiles with inherited setting CANNOT be edited if the main profile is locked. For each profile in the hierarchy, the following items can be inherited from the profile in the next level up:

  • Application and Infrastructure Restrictions/Exceptions
  • Performance Protection Restrictions
  • Reputation Exceptions
  • Category settings
  • Filters from the DV, Auxiliary DV and Custom Packages
  • Advanced DDoS filters
  • Traffic Thresholds filters
  • Reputation filters
  • Traffic Management filters

Note: If a filter has inherited settings and the base filter is locked, the filter with inherited settings CANNOT be edited.
