Access Protection vs AAC-based Expert Rules

Jump to solution
What is the difference between Access Protection and AAC-based Expert Rules? Are there any advantages/disadvantages to one approach over the other? What about performance impact. From a capability point of view, they both seem to do the same thing, with the biggest difference being that Expert Rules can be text-based so easier to manage.

@User85163087 The basic purpose of these two options is the same. The "impact" to the system is also the same. The difference is that there are additional capabilities in terms of granularity that is available with the Expert Rules vs. vanilla Access Protection (AP)---Expert rules provide additional parameters and allow much more flexibility. Most environments' needs are met solely by AP. However, there are instances in certain enterprises where more detail needs to be leveraged, and as such, we provide that option to Admins.
     The differences and capabilities of Expert Rules are described more in-depth within the ENS Product Guide PD27574 beginning page 111. The Expert Rule section can also be easily viewed here in the docs.mcafee.com version.
