Creating policies with rule sets

Rule sets define McAfee DLP policies. A rule set can contain a combination of data protection, device control, discovery rules, and application control rules. Rule definitions apply to all rule sets.

The Rule Sets page displays a list of defined rule sets and the status of each. The display includes the number of incidents logged for each rule set, how many rules have been defined, and how many enabled. Colored icons indicate the types of rules enabled. The tooltip displayed when mousing over icons shows the type of rule and number of enabled rules.
