Rule set libraries

The built-in and online libraries provide rule sets for importing into your rule set system.

You can import a rule set, for example, to add a function that is missing in your system or when the default rule sets do not suit your network.

  • The built-in rule set library also contains the rule sets that are part of the default rule set system.
  • More rule sets are available from an online rule set library. A link to this library is provided in the window of the standard rule set library.

In the built-in rule set library, rule sets are grouped in categories, for example, authentication or URL filtering. The following table shows these categories.
