What is it?
Services are defined as access to specific applications, IP address ranges and protocols. Services need to be restricted to specific User Groups, Networks or Hosts. Services are defined with IP address ranges, protocol and port. Protocol and port can be set to ‘Any’ to provide complete network-layer service access to an IP address range.
Who should use this?
An administrator can configure services under already defined Networks and Hosts.
Why should I use this?
Services provide a means to apply fine-grained access controls

When should I make use of this?
For example, if you want to restrict remote contractors to only allowing access to the time-keeping and work-order web services, you would define those two services under the Network that hosts those application servers and provide access to only those services to the User Group that those contractors belong in
