NOTE: The security manager is only available in configurations using a Capture Server and/or Network Station. Standalone configurations do not have this module enabled.


The Security Console can also be accessed from PSIcapture Administration.

Roles can be configured to customize what modules, security and configuration zones, and capture profiles a user can modify, create, or delete.
