Policy Types

Control Manager provides three types of policies administrators can create. Each policy type differs in the target selection method, which affects how a policy works. The policy list arranges the policy types in the order as described in the following table.

Table 1. Policy Types

Policy Type



  • Uses the search or browse function to locate specific targets and manually assigns them to the policy

  • Useful when administrators plan to deploy specific settings only to a certain targets

  • Remains static on the top of the policy list and takes priority over any filtered policies



Endpoint Encryption does not support filtered policies.


Allows administrators to save policy settings as a draft without selecting any targets. Control Manager saves draft policies with the lowest priority at the bottom of the list.
