If needed, you can configure proxy communication between
the Cortex XDR server and the Cortex XDR agents.
You can configure communication through proxy servers
between the Cortex XDR server and the Cortex XDR agents running
on Windows, Mac, and Linux endpoints. The Cortex XDR agent uses
the proxy settings defined as part of the
settings or WPAD protocol on the endpoint. You
can also configure a list of proxy servers that your Cortex XDR
agent will use to communicate the with Cortex XDR server.
Cortex XDR supports the following types of proxy configurations:
—Use system-wide proxy to send
all communication on the endpoint including to and from the Cortex
XDR agent through a proxy server configured for the endpoint. Cortex XDR
supports proxy communication for proxy settings defined explicitly
on the endpoint, as well as proxy settings configured in a proxy
auto-config (PAC) file.
Available with Traps
agent 5.0.9, Traps agent 6.1.2, and Cortex XDR agent 7.0 and later
) Configure a Cortex XDR specific
proxy that applies only to the Cortex XDR agent and does
not enforce proxy communications with other apps or services on
your endpoint. You can set up to five proxy servers either during
the Cortex XDR agent installation process, or following agent installation, directly
from the Cortex XDR management console.
Application-specific proxy configurations take precedence over
system-wide proxy configurations. The Cortex XDR agent retrieves
the proxy list defined on the endpoint and tries to establish communication
with the Cortex XDR server first through app-specific proxies. Then,
if communication is unsuccessful, the agent tries to connect using
the system-wide proxy, if defined. If none are defined, the Cortex
XDR agent attempts communication with the Cortex XDR server directly.
The Cortex XDR agent does not support proxy communication in environments
where proxy authentication is required.
