This document contains general information about BlastShield groups. To learn more about creating and managing groups, click here.
Groups allow you to micro-segment endpoints and users. A group is a logical collection of endpoints and/or users that are grouped together. Groups are connected via policies, which form the foundation for BlastShield access control and segmentation management
Any combination of endpoints and/or users can be grouped together
There is no limit to the number of endpoints and/or users that can be in a group
Endpoints and users can be in one or multiple groups simultaneously
Groups are linked together via policies to provide access between endpoints
By default, endpoints/users cannot access or have visibility to other endpoints/users unless they are granted access via a policy
Examples of Groups
Group 1 contains three endpoints - A, B, and C
Group 2 contains three endpoints - D, E, and F
Group 1 endpoints can access Group 2 endpoints
Group 2 endpoints cannot access Group 1 endpoints
These groups are connected by a policy - Policy X
Group 3 contains two endpoints - D and F
Group 4 contains a single endpoint - A
Group 3 endpoints can access Group 4 endpoints
Group 4 endpoints cannot access Group 3 endpoints
These groups are connected by a policy - Policy Y
Notice that endpoint A is associated with multiple groups and multiple policies
