Updating a policy to a new version

Over time Symantec provides updated policy templates that include policy optimizations or new options.
When a new policy template is available, you use the latest template to create new policies. You can also upgrade any existing policies that use older versions of the policy.
To see when a new policy version is available, check the
Policies
list in the cloud console. A visual indicator alerts you that a new version is available.
