Importing and exporting objects

To effectively import and export objects, you need to understand the following concepts.

Secure Perspective allows for the importing and exporting of many different Secure Perspective objects, such as policies or term dictionaries in XML. This can be useful for environments where the policies are shared, but the underlying hardware and software implementations differ. For example, you can write a policy and term dictionary at the corporate level, and distribute them to branch offices. Importing and exporting allows the branch offices to map the resources to their specific environments. Importing and exporting also allows you to easily back up and restore your data.
