Proxy Auto Configuration (PAC)

PROXY AUTO CONFIGURATION (PAC)*

Proxy Auto Configuration (PAC) is a configuration file with text to instruct browsers forwarding the traffic to a proxy server instead of the real destination. These Secuscaler configuration files consists of JavaScript with multiple settings:

  • Proxy Server

  • Time when the proxy should be used

  • Days a week when the proxy should be used

  • Whitelists domain, for which the proxy should never be used

All widespread browsers support Proxy Auto Configuration. Only the path to the PAC file need to be specified and the browser will fetch and executes the JavaScript. Secuscaler hosts default PAC files, but customers can customize their own files.

In the graphic the browser is configured with the path to the Secuscaler PAC file. When the browser gets opened, it will ask the Secuscaler Server for the PAC file. Geo-location on the users IP will tell the Secuscaler server which proxy is the nearest to the location and the corresponding PAC file will be send to the browser. The browser will use this proxy as primary proxy to send all traffic to.

Because the browser itself will forward the traffic to the Secuscaler proxy it doesn’t matter what network it is in (also private IP network with Internet access are fully supported).

CLOUD INTELLIGENCE

SECUCLOUD GLOBAL CLOUD INTELLIGENCE

Secucloud Global Cloud Intelligence provides a real-time glimpse of the online threat situation to actively protect all Secucloud customers. The Global Cloud Intelligence automatically analyzes all IPs, domains, hosts and files that could potentially be associated with suspicious behavior.

To identify new threats as soon as they appear and ensure immediate protection for the user’s platform Secucloud Global Cloud Intelligence inspects billions of web transactions. Together with a multitude of different intelligence feeds, Secucloud ensures that the latest security intelligence is always used.

MACHINE LEARNING & SELF-IMPROVING

Secucloud links superior machine learning technology with the multi source input network to continuously improve the Global Cloud Intelligence and to rapidly classify domains, URLs, IPs and files with great coverage, accuracy and speed.

Another technique to ensure continuous tracking and unique accuracy is to determine via proprietary AI algorithms how deeply a given site should be scanned. For example, site dynamics and typical user interactions with a given site are factors in these algorithms. Secuclouds’ contextual analysis determines in which case to deeply scan sites, using different methods: ƒ

  • AI analyzing the site dynamics and user behavior

  • Customer-oriented classification

  • Exact URL classification at any given time due to continuous tracking
