Manage zones

You can use zones to group and manage
CylancePROTECT Desktop
devices,
CylanceOPTICS
devices, and
CylancePERSONA Desktop
users. These devices and users could be grouped based on geography (for example, Asia and Europe), by function (for example, Sales and IT staff), or by any criteria your organization requires.
You can assign a device policy to a zone and apply that device policy to the
CylancePROTECT Desktop
,
CylanceOPTICS
, and
CylancePERSONA Desktop
devices that belong to that zone. You can also add a zone rule that can assign devices to a zone based on selected criteria, like domain name, IP address range, or operating system. A zone rule will add new devices to the zone if the device meets the rule requirements.
