Only users with pro licenses will be able to create a SecureAPlus Policy.
A SecureAPlus Policy is a collection of pre-defined SecureAPlus settings that can be easily deployed and imposed to attached SecureAPlus Pro devices with the Policy Add-on feature.
To create a SecureAPlus Policy in your SecureAPlus Account Portal.
1. Log in to your SecureAPlus Portal.
4. Begin pre-defining a collection of customized settings for a linked SecureAPlus installation.
Note that the Inherit Default toggle and drop-down choices means that the pre-defined settings that as determined by the SecureAPlus team (i.e. software default settings) will be taken into account in addition to anything that the user has set.
Client Settings tab
In the Policy Info sub-tab, enter a name for the policy. Make sure to use a name that will help in identifying this policy from the default and other policies (i.e. name of a department, company user type, privilege level, etc).
After naming the policy, you may begin pre-defining a collection of customized settings for a linked SecureAPlus installation.
|STEP 5|||In the Exclusions sub-tab, specify the files or folders to be excluded from scanning.
In the Trusted Groups sub-tab, specify the Trusted Groups who will have the rights to
To specify the Trusted Groups:
|STEP 7|||In the Trusted Users sub-tab, specify the Trusted Users who will have the rights to

Application Whitelisting Settings tab
|STEP 1|||In the General sub-tab, specify Observation Mode, Trust based on digital signature, and Auto Adjust Trust Level or inherit the default setting for each.|
|STEP 2|||In the Restricted Applications sub-tab, you can add an application to a Restricted Applications list, so that it will not automatically bring in other applications that may potentially harm the user’s system.
To add an application to a Restricted Applications list:
|STEP 3|||Only applications which have their certificate listed under the Trusted Certificate list will be trusted.
In the Trusted Certificates sub-tab, click here to add trusted certificates into a policy in SecureAPlus Account Portal.
|STEP 4|||In application whitelisting, executing a script requires both the script interpreter (which executes the script) and the script file itself to be trusted. The script interpreter will refuse to open any non-trusted file.
If the script has a higher trust level than the script interpreter, the script interpreter trust level will match its trust level to the trust level of the script file. On the other hand, if the script has a lower trust level than the script interpreter, the script interpreter will be running at its own trust level.
To manage Script Interpreters in SecureAPlus Portal Scripts sub-tab:
|STEP 5|||Command Line Rules extend the whitelisting coverage to file-less attacks that make use of already trusted applications to infect PCs. Such attacks do not exist as a file and can remain undetected by antivirus programs and threaten the security of the user’s system.
This advanced feature of SecureAPlus enables users to make additional rules on top of the default ones to increase the overall security of SecureAPlus according to user preference and technical knowledge.
To add more Command Line Rules in SecureAPlus Portal Command Line sub-tab:
|STEP 6|||In the Removable Device sub-tab, customize how external USB storage devices are treated when inserted or inherit the default setting for each.
Additionally, you can also add a User-defined Whitelisted USB Storage Device in the Removable Device sub-tab.
To add more User-defined Whitelisted USB Storage Device in SecureAPlus Portal Removable Device sub-tab:
5. Once all settings have been finalized for the policy, click on Save to add this to your My Policy list or implement any of the changes if you were editing an existing listed policy.
After creating a policy you can then assign it to SecureAPlus Pro installation linked to your account with the Policy Add-On feature.
