Security Policies

Security policies enforce rules that control the user access and authentication features on the Vocera system.

System administrators can create security policies and associate them with a variety of policy items to ensure that users have access and authentication privileges when accessing the Vocera system via the Vocera Platform Web Console, mobile clients, or supported Vocera devices.

You can create multiple security policies with a variety of security policy items as needed. You can also update an existing security policy with additional items to configure appropriate security settings for users. After creating policies, system administrators can associate the policies with a role. Roles determine whether users have permissions to access Vocera features. For more information on how roles work, see Roles.

As a system default, a Default Security Policy is applied to all users in the system. You cannot remove the default security policy; however, a user with appropriate permission can edit the name and description of a default security policy.
