BIG-IQ Web Application Security imports ASM security policies from discovered BIG-IP devices and lists them in the Policies panel. Each security policy is assigned a unique identifier that it carries across the enterprise. This ensures that each policy is shown only once in the Policies panel, no matter how many devices it is attached to.
