Assign a Policy to Your Site

Internal Networks identities are assigned to policies through the Site identity.

Once you've selected the site that contains your Internal Networks, you can begin to select the parts of the policy to apply to these computers.

For more information on policies, see Manage Policies.

Using Umbrella Sites

Configure each Umbrella site as if it is a complete deployment. For each Umbrella site:

  • Follow the previous steps of this guide again, and after each sub-step to verify that the component has synced or reported to the dashboard, assign the component to a site by clicking its name and selecting an existing site or creating a new site.
  • You may also rename the default or any existing sites.

"Sites” in Umbrella refer to separate different locations or networks, which do not have a direct connection to another of your locations or networks.
Utilizing different sites results in a segregated Internal Networks environment. For example, different "sites" means that each location must have a minimum of one VA.

You should use Umbrella sites when the following is true:

  • There is 150ms or more of latency between two locations
  • Your locations communicate between a NAT device, which causes the internal IP address of an end machine to be lost.
