If you have the Hybrid Module, the hybrid service can manage Internet requests originating from external IP addresses (locations) that you configure, and for requests from users in unrecognized locations (off-site users, for example) that log on to the hybrid service.
The hybrid service can apply policies (created in the Security Manager) to:
*
This requires that Directory Agent be installed and configured (see Identification and authentication of hybrid users).
*
Filtered locations, identified on the Settings > General > Filtered Locations page. A location is identified by the external IP address, IP address range, or subnet of one or more firewall or gateway machines.
The hybrid service does not apply policies to individual client machines in your network
Directory clients (users, groups, and OUs) managed by the hybrid service are identified on the Policy Management > Clients page, just like those whose requests are managed by on-premises components.
Applying a policy to a filtered location is similar to applying a policy to a computer or network client:
1.
Add the location to the Settings > General > Filtered Locations page (see Filtered locations).
2.
3.
Any time no user, group, or location policy applies, the Default policy is used.
