Accept policies

Accept security policies accept traffic that is coming into the network. These policies allow traffic through the FortiGate unit, where the packets are scanned, translated if NAT is enabled, and then sent out to its destination.

Accept security policies are the most common security policies that are created in FortiOS. These security policies are basic policies, such as allowing Internet access, as well as complex policies, such as IPsec VPN.
