Adding Edge Threat Management appliances to ETM Dashboard


You can remotely manage and access your NG Firewall and Micro Edge appliances by adding them to your ETM Dashboard account. If the appliance is online but not configured, you can add the appliance based on its serial number by a process referred to as Zero Touch Provisioning.
