Security policy templates use existing Forescout CounterACT® functionality to detect, evaluate, and respond to vulnerabilities and threats – speeding and simplifying your network response. When this plugin is installed, security policy templates are available in the Policy view of the Console under the Vulnerability and Response sub-folder in the Templates tree.
To work with these templates, it is recommended to:
- Read the release notes and review the policy logic in the Console’s Policy view.
- Enable/add mitigation actions to generated policies.
For details of working with CounterACT policies, see the Console User Manual.
