Note: Proxy support is only for HTTP and HTTPS proxies and not SOCKS5.

You can configure a proxy that is used across Security Analytics modules and services in the System View > Advance Configuration panel. The Proxy Settings in the Advanced Configuration panel set up a proxy to be used wherever a proxy is needed in Security Analytics. These settings override any proxy settings configured for an individual service or module, such as Malware Analysis or Live.

Configure a Proxy

To configure a proxy for use across Security Analytics modules:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > System.
  2. In the options panel, select HTTP Proxy Settings.
  3. Click the Enable checkbox.
    The fields where you configure the proxy settings are activated.
  4. Type the hostname for the proxy server and the port used for communications on the proxy server.
  5. (Optional) Type the username and password that serve as credentials to access the proxy server if authentication is required.
  6. (Optional) Enable Use NTLM Authentication and type the NTLM domain name.
  7. (Optional) Enable Use SSL if communications use Secure Socket Layer.
  8. To save and apply the configuration, click Apply.
    The proxy is immediately available for use throughout Security Analytics modules and services, for example,  Live and Malware Analysis.
