About device protection and protection profiles

BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) applies DoS/DDoS attack protection at two levels: Device Protection and Protection Profiles. Device Protection is used to protect the entire BIG-IP system, while Protection Profiles are used to protect individual virtual servers, known as
Protected Objects
. Having two levels of protection provides the ability to adapt detection and mitigation levels for specific devices or applications.
