Policy

The Policy module provides the following functions:

  • Security policy: Security policy the basic function of devices that are designed to control the traffic forwarding between security zones/segments. By default all traffic between security zones/segments will be denied.

  • NAT: When the IP packets pass through the devices or routers, the devices or routers will translate the source IP address and/or the destination IP address in the IP packets.

  • QoS: QoS is used to provide different priorities to different traffic, in order to control the delay and flapping, and decrease the packet loss rate. QoS can assure the normal transmission of critical business traffic when the network is overloaded or congested.
  • Session limit: The session limit function limits the number of sessions and controls the session rate to the source IP address, destination IP address, specified IP address, service, or role/user/user group, thereby protecting from DoS attacks and control the bandwidth of applications, such as IM or P2P.
  • Global blacklist: After adding the IP addresses or services to the global blacklist, system will perform the block action to the IP address and service until the block duration ends.
