In the Forcepoint Security Manager, a computer is the IP address (for example, 10.201.3.1 or fd3a:918a:71a1:bcaa::0011) associated with an end user's machine. A network is the IP address range (for example, 10.201.3.2 - 10.201.3.44 or fd3a:918a:71a1:bcaa::1111 - fd3a:918a:71a1:bcaa::1211) that corresponds to a group of machines.

You can assign policies to computer and network clients just as you would to user, group, or domain clients.
*
Assign a policy to a computer, for example, that does not require users to log on, or that can be accessed by users with guest accounts.
*
Assign a policy to a network to apply the same policy to several machines at once.
When you assign a policy to a computer or network, that policy is enforced regardless of who is logged on to the client machine, unless you have assigned a policy to the logged-on user. When on-premises components enforce policy, the computer or network policy takes precedence over any group policies that may apply to the user. (The hybrid service applies the group policy before applying a computer or network policy. See Working with hybrid service clients.)
