Selectively disabling threat protection (AMP & IDS/IPS) with group policy

Hi All,

 

It looks like it's possible to disable Advanced Malware Protection (ie. HTTP file download inspection) at a group policy level, but not Intrusion detection and prevention (SNORT) - does anyone know if it's possible to do this somehow?

 

Use case is a firewall with lots of guest internet users connected to one subnet that we're not interested in protecting, but we are interested in protecting admin users on a separate subnet.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Jonathan

The group policy is able to override AMP setting but not IDS / IPS.

There is no exclusion of IDS / IPS for particular subnet or IP address is available at this moment.

 

IDP / IPS works between LAN port and Internet ports, and also between VLANs (Subnets).

Thus, the setting is enabled / disabled network-wide for detection / prevention to work for securing the entire network.

I believe you can apply a certain Policy per subnet, its on the Addressing and VLAN part of the meraki
