Centralized Management of Proxy Configuration (Proxy Configuration Policy)

This article explains how to manage the Proxy Configuration Policy for users and user groups in your account.


If your network architecture contains proxy servers that you manage, then hosts in your network require a PAC file to know which proxies to send relevant traffic to. The Proxy Configuration Policy defines a URL where a PAC file is located so that it can be downloaded by a browser. You can configure different URLs for different users or User groups.


  • The Proxy Configuration Policy is supported for Clients installed on the following operating systems:

    • Windows

    • macOS

    • iOS

Configuring the Proxy Configuration Policy

The Proxy Configuration Policy is an ordered rule base that sequentially checks if a rule is met. When a user meets a rule, the PAC file is made available for their browser to download. If no rule is met, the user traffic is routed directly to the Cato Cloud without using a proxy server.


To configure the Proxy Configuration Policy:

  1. From the navigation menu, click Access > Proxy Configuration Policy.

  2. Click New.

    The new rule panel opens.

  3. Enter a Name for the rule.

  4. Define the Users/GroupsPlatforms, and enter the PAC file URL.

  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each rule in the Proxy Configuration Policy.

  6. Enable the Proxy Configuration Policy and then click Save.

    The slider is green when the rule is enabled, and gray when the rule is disabled.
