WinGate policies and rights

WinGate provides tight security while maintaining flexibility.

Security in WinGate is managed by the assignment of rights to individuals and groups (and these assignments form policies). In this manner, WinGate security operates in a similar way to the Windows NT user system.

Policies in WinGate can be implemented at both the system level and on a service-by-service basis. You can create a mix of policies at both levels to enforce the level of security required for your network.

System Policies

System Policies are the primary way for implementing security and control with WinGate. Policies can now be defined per service, per user, per group as well as per time of day, and can be restricted on a per request basis. These are the overall restrictions that apply to all services (unless these are overridden at the service policy level).

Service Policies

Service Policies are the secondary way for implementing security and control with WinGate. These rules are evaluated only for the service that they are applied to.

Policy recipient configuration

When adding recipients to a Right in WinGate you can configure other options specifically for that recipient in respect to the assigned right (policy).
