capability is supported on endpoints with Traps agent 5.0.9 (Windows
only) or Cortex XDR agent 7.0 and later releases.
environments where agents communicate with the Cortex XDR server
through a wide-system proxy, you
can now set an application-specific proxy for the Traps and Cortex
XDR agent without affecting the communication of other applications
on the endpoint. You can set the proxy in one of three ways: during
the agent installation or after installation using Cytool on the
endpoint or from
Cortex XDR as described in this topic. You can assign up to five
different proxy servers per agent. The proxy server the agent uses
is selected randomly and with equal probability. If the communication
between the agent and the Cortex XDR sever through the app-specific
proxies fails, the agent resumes communication through the system-wide
proxy defined on the endpoint. If that fails as well, the agent
resumes communication with Cortex XDR directly.
From Cortex XDR, select

when you’re done.
If necessary, you can later
from the right-click menu.
When you disable the proxy configuration, all proxies associated
with that agent are removed. The agent resumes communication with
the Cortex XDR sever through the wide-system proxy if defined, otherwise
if a wide-system is not defined the agent resumes communicating
directly with the Cortex XDR server. If neither a wide-system proxy
nor direct communication exist and you disable the proxy, the agent
will disconnect from Cortex XDR.
