11.0 Configuring a Policy’s Locations

In addition to the global settings for a security policy (see Section 10.0, Configuring a Policy’s Global Settings), you can define location-based settings. Unlike global settings, which are applied regardless of location, location-based settings are applied based on the endpoint device’s current network environment.

You can use location-based settings to determine firewall security, wireless availability (including allowed access points, encryption security levels, and supported wireless adapters), communication hardware availability (IrDA, Bluetooth, etc.), USB device connectivity, and storage device availability.
