Access Profile

Use the Access Profile page to create profiles for Administrators. Role-based administration capabilities are provided to offer greater granular access control and flexibility. Profile sets up access levels for the administrative users. Profile determines the privileges of the administrator and the administrator’s access to managed Sophos XG Firewall Device and SFM features.

Access profile page is divided into access control categories for which you can enable None, Read-only, or Read-Write access. For ease of use by default, SFM Device is shipped with profile “Administrator” with full privileges and “Device Administrator” with privileges over specific Devices.

To manage default and custom profiles, go to System Management > System Settings > Administration > Access Profile > .
