Threat Protection

TMWS supports Threat Protection to secure your files by protecting them from emerging advanced threats. It also integrates with Trend Micro Web Reputation Services to prevent you from accessing infected websites, and provides Advanced Threat Scanning to detect botnets, unknown threats, and suspicious objects.

Administrators can add Threat Protection templates and apply them to cloud access rules for enhanced protection.

  1. Go to Policies > SECURITY TEMPLATES > Threat Protection.
  2. Manage Threat Protection templates.



    Add/Edit a Threat Protection template

    Click Add or select an existing Threat Protection template under Template Name, and then specify the settings on the screen that appears. For details, see Configuring A Threat Protection Template.

    Delete a Threat Protection template

    Select one or several Threat Protection templates to delete and then click Delete.


    If a Threat Protection template is in use by a cloud access rule, it cannot be deleted. To delete it, remove it from the cloud access rule first.

    Duplicate a Threat Protection template

    This feature is a convenient way of adding a new Threat Protection template with settings similar to an existing template.

    Select a Threat Protection template and click Duplicate. Under Template Name, click the duplicated template and then specify settings on the new screen that appears.


    You can duplicate only one Threat Protection template at a time.

    Sort the template information

    Sort the information in ascending or descending order in either of the following ways:

    • Click the title area of a column.

    • Click the up or down arrow at the right of the title area of a column.

    View data in table columns

    • Template Name: Name of a Threat Protection template.

    • Description: (Optional) Meaningful description to easily identify the Threat Protection template.

    • Cloud Access Rules: Cloud access rules that use the Threat Protection template.

    Search for a Threat Protection template

    Type a keyword or part of the keyword related to either column in the table in the Search text box.


    If there are many entries in the table, type some characters in the Search text box to narrow down the entries. As you type, the entries that match the characters you typed are displayed immediately. TMWS searches all cells in the table for matches.
