About the Application Signatures Page

 

To access this page, select Configuration > Shared Objects > Application Signatures.

Use the Application Signatures page to view application signatures that are already downloaded and to create, modify, clone, and delete custom application signature groups. The Application Signatures page displays the name, object type, category and subcategory, risk associated with, and characteristics of the signature. You can create custom application signature groups with a set of similar signatures for consistent reuse when defining policies.
