The Application Security Manager provides application-ready security policies, which are templates for the following enterprise applications:
Microsoft® ActiveSync® 1.0, 2.0
Lotus® Domino® 6.5
Microsoft® Outlook Web Access® Exchange 2003
Microsoft® Outlook Web Access® Exchange 2007
Oracle® Portal 10g
Oracle® Applications 11i
PeopleSoft® Portal Solutions 9
SAP® NetWeaver® 7

You can use the Deployment wizard to deploy an application-ready security policy. For more information on the individual application-ready security policies, refer to the Working with the Application-Ready Security Policies appendix in the Configuration Guide for BIG-IP® Application Security Manager.
Important: The procedures in this deployment start after you have configured the network settings that are appropriate for your environment. Refer to Chapter 2, Performing Basic Configuration Tasks, if you have not yet configured network connectivity.
The Deployment wizard guides you through the tasks required for creating a security policy. When you start the Deployment wizard, you select a deployment scenario. Each deployment scenario includes preset configuration options. The configuration options are tailored to address the needs of the environment or application for which you are creating a security policy.
Note: If you have not yet configured the basic local traffic settings, refer to Chapter 2, Performing Basic Configuration Tasks, and perform those tasks. Once you have completed the tasks outlined in that chapter, you can proceed with this deployment scenario.
