In actual versions of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud

You can define the proxy server settings for Windows devices only in the settings of the distribution package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

To define the proxy server settings for Windows devices:

  1. Open Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console.
  2. Select the Distribution packages section.

    The Distribution packages section contains distribution packages of security applications for Windows and Mac devices.

  3. In the block of the distribution package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, click the Proxy server link.

    The link is available only if the most recent distribution package for the security application has been prepared.

    The Proxy server settings for Windows devices window opens.

  4. Define the proxy server settings.
  5. Click the Next button.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud starts preparing the new version of the distribution package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows. After the distribution package is prepared, you can download it or copy the link to it.

In earlier versions of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud

The procedure described in this section is applicable only if you created your workspace earlier than Update 6 of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud and if you have not prepared the distribution package of Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.1 for Windows. Additionally, if you use Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.0 for Windows, the proxy server settings that are described in this section will be used only by Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.0 for Windows. Network Agent will use the proxy server settings that you defined when you downloaded the distribution package.
Otherwise, you can configure the proxy server only when downloading the distribution package.

You can define the proxy server settings for Windows devices, which will be used for connecting those devices to the Internet.

To define the proxy server settings for Windows devices:

  1. Open Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console.
  2. Select the Security managementSecurity profiles section.

    The Security profiles section contains a list of security profiles configured in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud.

  3. In the list, select the security profile for the devices on which you want to configure the proxy server.
  4. Click the link with the profile name to open the security profile properties window.

    The security profile properties window displays settings available for all devices.

  5. In the Windows group, select the AdvancedNetwork section.

    The navigation area will then display the network settings.

  6. Switch the toggle button to Use proxy server.
  7. To enable automatic detection of the proxy server address, select Automatically detect proxy server settings.
  8. To manually specify the proxy server address and port number, select Use defined proxy server settings, and then define the proxy server settings by clicking Settings:
    1. Specify the proxy server address and port number.
    2. Enable or disable the use of the proxy server for local addresses. By default, the use of the proxy server is enabled for local addresses.
    3. Enable or disable user authentication on the proxy server, and specify the user name and password. By default, user authentication is enabled on the proxy server.
    4. Click Save to save the changes and close the Proxy server settings window.
  9. Click Save to save the changes you made in the Network window.

After the security profile is applied, Windows devices will use the specified proxy server settings when connecting to the Internet.
