Policy groups

SafeGuard Enterprise policies can be combined in policy groups. A policy group may contain different policy types. In the SafeGuard Management Center, a Default policy group is available that is assigned to Root under Users and Computers by default.

A defined policy setting will overwrite settings from other policies, if

Note: Overlapping policies assigned to a group might result in incorrect calculation of the priorities. Ensure that you use disjunctive policy settings.

Exception concerning device protection:

Policies for device protection are only merged, if they were defined for the same target (for example boot volume). If they are for different targets, the settings will be added.
