Policy templates, policy types, and default policies

The cloud console includes a set of default policies. Every default policy is based on a policy template of a particular type, such as Antimalware or Exploit Prevention.
When you create a policy, you must select a policy template.
Policy templates define the information, configuration fields, and task options available in the policy. The available templates depend on the subscription you have and whether you have enabled the protection.
Symantec updates policy templates on a periodic basis. When a policy template update occurs, you see different versions of the policy templates when you create a policy. If the policy template is out of date, you update it by selecting
