  • Configuration profiles let you specify a device's network access rights, overall security policy, scan schedule and other general settings.
  • You can use a Xcitium-provided 'Default' profile, or configure your own custom profile. Any profile designated as 'Default' is automatically applied to new devices.
  • You cannot edit the Xcitium default Linux profiles, but you can clone it and edit the copy. This article explains how to do that.
