    Policies for Device Protection:

    If you create a policy for device protection, you must also specify the target for device protection. Possible targets are:

    • Mass storage (boot volumes/other volumes)
    • Removable media
    • Optical drives
    • Storage device models
    • Distinct storage devices
    • Cloud storage

    For each target, a separate policy has to be created. Later on you can combine the individual policies in a policy group named Encryption, for example.

  6. Click OK.

The new policy is displayed in the navigation window below Policy Items. In the action area, all settings for the selected policy type are displayed and can be changed.
