Device profiles give customers the ability to assign a group of devices with a ‘Label(s)’. Labels can be used to identify groups of devices more easily, such as whether PCI system is ‘In Scope’ or ‘Out of Scope’. Labeling will track all the activities of the system and are noted by the DSI which can be further used in reports.
Following actions can be performed on every Device Profile:
Devices - Click this button to view the list of all the devices which are assigned to the selected device profile.
Edit - Allows you to edit the information of the selected device profile.
Clone - Allows you to copy the configuration of an existing device profile, which can be edited without impacting the original one.
Delete - Click this button if you want to delete the selected device profile detail.
