Title: 3 versus 4 shields
Post by: priestlucas123 on February 07, 2017, 08:14:44 PM
Under the Protection tab, it shows File Shield, Web Shield and Mail Shield, but Settings / Components there is also something new called Behavior Shield.

Shouldn't these two places show the same number of shields?

Yeah, well, I've told them the same thing, but due to time constraints, they were unable to redesign it the way we wanted. This should change in march, early April when they are rolling in new interface changes and updates. If all goes as planned. No info on exact design they are going to use. I've sent them several designs, not sure which path they are going to take...

The Behaviour Shield is a little like an extension of the File System Shield. I guess it has some settings that are unique to it so not kept within the File System Shield or General for that matter.

That said I believe they could just add another section within the File System Shield settings.

I wonder if it isn't a marketing thing having another quasi Shield.
