Security configuration is available for old releases(Before Sensei 1.8). There is no TCP Service password for CLI anymore.

  • Set your TCP Service password. This password protects the command line based CLI access to the packet engine. It is highly recommended to set this with a secure one.

Cloud Threat Intelligence

The Cloud Threat Intelligence data is queried real time when a connection attempt is made through your network. It helps us to respond to malware and wireless outbreaks in real time and very fast.


The engine processes the request, queries to "SVN Cloud" in real-time and decides whether it will be blocked or allowed. We check against 300+ Million Websites, under 120+ categories in milliseconds.

Cloud Threat Intel settings lets you;

  • Enable/Disable the cloud reputation and web categorization
  • Set local domain settings to be excluded from cloud queries
