Is is possible to have ACC assign different APP RISK based on the zone?

I would like to be able to assign a different RISK rating on the same app, say RDP.

If RDP is seen on the management zone I would rate that as a RISK 2, however if seen on the Internal zone I would rate that as RISK 5.  Does anyone know a way to do this short of having different firewalls for each zone?

You could create a custom applicaiton for RDP traffic for one of those zones and then utilize an applicaiton override policy for labeling all rdp traffic from the internal zone as the new 'rdp-risk5' application. It's admitably a pretty 'hack' way of doing things, but it'll work for what you are trying to do.

Yes you adjust the 'risk' value to something other than default. Go to Objects->Applications, then click on the name of the application. When the popup opens, there is a 'Customize' option next to the default Risk value.


Hope this helps.

you want to hit 2 birds with one stone, you could split everyday traffic from management segment by splitting up the two into 2 separate VSYS

in each vsys you can perfectly assign different risk factors to the same application and you get to physically treat the connections differently as they flow through a separate vsys (no risk of accidental overflow)
