Enterprise Templates

This topic is ONLY relevant to security gateways. It is NOT relevant to managed switches.


Figure 1.  Enterprise Templates Page

The Enterprise Templates page (Fig. 1) in the Services menu of the Configure section of the Central Management System (CMS) allows you to manage which Enterprise Templates are available to the selected Mako device. This is a quick and efficient way to enable or disable shared firewall rulesets with the click of a button.

Your company must have existing Enterprise Templates before you can use this page.  Enterprise Templates can be used to easily manage firewall rules across multiple sites.  They are managed here:
