About Service Groups

Service Groups allow services to be categorized into groups for Service Governance purposes. You can build a Service Group based on the risk score of cloud services that can help you enforce security policies. You can add a Service to multiple Service Groups.

You can also use Service Groups with integrated edge devices. For more information about this powerful feature, see Firewall and Proxy Integration.

Service Groups can also be used along with egress devices to set policies. For more information about policies, see About Cloud Access Policies.

To manage Service Groups, go to Governance > Service Groups. On this page, you can view the details of the existing service groups and create a new service group. You can also search, filter, and drill down to see the information you need.

To learn more about the Service Group, click to view the Service Group Cloud Card.
