    Creating Device Profiles

    Use this page to group files under a common, unique name for scanning. By grouping files together into a profile, you can choose file categories to send to the cloud rather than having to list every single type of file you want to scan, such as .tar, .exe, and .java. Once you create your profile name, select one or more check boxes to add file types to be scanned to the profile. Optionally, enter a value limit for the file type in megabytes.

    Before You Begin

    • Review the Device Profiles Overview topic.
    • Note that a default profile, default_profile, is created as part of the initial configuration step. You can modify this default profile, but you cannot delete it.
    • If you are using the free model of Sky Advanced Threat Prevention, you are limited to only the executable file category.

    Configuring Device Profiles

    To create a device profile:

    1. Select Configure > Device Profiles.
    2. Click the plus sign (+). Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in the Table 1 below.
    3. Click OK.

    Table 1: Device Profile Settings




    Enter a unique name for the profile. This must be a unique string that begins with an alphanumeric character and can include letters, numbers, and underscores; no spaces are allowed; 63-character maximum.

    File Categories

    Select the check boxes beside the file categories you want to send to the cloud for inspection.

    Maximum File Size

    (Optional) Set the maximum file size, in megabytes, for the selected file categories. If a file exceeds this limit, it is not sent to the cloud for inspection and is transferred to the client. If you do not set the maximum file size, a default of 32 MB is used.

    Note: You can create up to 32 profiles.

    Note: Sky ATP periodically polls for new and updated content and automatically downloads it to your SRX Series device. There is no need to manually push your profile.

    To edit an existing device profile:

    1. Select the profile to edit from the list and click the pencil icon.
    2. Make your necessary changes and click OK.

    To delete an existing device profile, select it from the list and click the X icon.
