The proxy server settings that are described in this section will be used only by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac. Network Agent will use the proxy server settings that you defined when you downloaded the distribution package.

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

To define the proxy server settings for Mac 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 Mac 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:
    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.
  9. Click the Save button.

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