How Do Location Based Policies Work?

With more employees on the go, laptops in the office have become commonplace. Whether the laptop is provided by the company, or is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), location based rules let you strike a balance between protection and leniency. For example, you may want to use a web filtering policy in the workplace to prevent inappropriate surfing, but allow employees to surf as they wish when they go home at the end of the day. You can create special rules based on where a computer is located, assuming that you know the wireless network that your computers will be using. 

Click the "Manage Locations" button under Location Rules to create and edit the locations you are using. You can add a location based on the Wireless Network Name or the Wireless Network Base Identifier. Click "Add" once you have configured your location to add it to the list.
