Configuring network proxy information

The
Symantec Endpoint Detection and Response
appliance uses the network proxy during communications outside of the network, such as when the appliance downloads virus definitions from LiveUpdate or contacts
Synapse
for analyses.
You can configure access to a network proxy that requires Basic Access Authentication (BA) or no authentication at all.
There are some required domains and URLs that
Symantec EDR
must be able to access. Your proxy server must be configured to allow access to the same required domains that your firewall must be able to access. See
Symantec Endpoint Detection and Response
Installation Guide
for more information about required domains for your firewall server.
