Working with User or Endpoint Importance

Assign importance to groups of users and endpoints. For example, assign external-facing servers as important so you can apply a strict policy to these servers and constantly monitor their protection status.

To assign importance, first create custom tags or filters. You can then assign importance to endpoints or users with the custom tags or returned by the custom filter.

  • By default, all users and endpoints are not assigned importance.

  • Manually assign importance to one or more custom tags and custom filters.

  • All users with access to the User/Endpoint Directory can assign or unassign importance.

  1. Access the User/Endpoint Directory, and then navigate to the Users or Endpoints tree.
  2. Navigate to the Importance node, mouseover Important, and then click .
  3. In the popup window that displays:
    • Assign importance by selecting one or several custom tags and custom filters and then clicking OK.
    • Unassign importance by clearing one or several custom tags and custom filters and then clicking OK.
    The table in the main screen is updated with the list of endpoints or users that match the custom tags or custom filters. For details about the table columns and the data they contain, see Accessing the User Tree.
