Microsoft Defender for Endpoint can discover a proxy server by using the following discovery methods:

  • Proxy autoconfig (PAC)
  • Web Proxy Autodiscovery Protocol (WPAD)
  • Manual static proxy configuration

If a proxy or firewall is blocking anonymous traffic, make sure that anonymous traffic is permitted in the previously listed URLs.

Warning

Authenticated proxies are not supported. Ensure that only PAC, WPAD, or a static proxy is being used.

SSL inspection and intercepting proxies are also not supported for security reasons.

Adding your interception certificate to the global store will not allow for interception.

To test that a connection is not blocked, open https://x.cp.wd.microsoft.com/api/report and https://cdn.x.cp.wd.microsoft.com/ping in a browser.

If you prefer the command line, you can also check the connection by running the following command in Terminal:

As usual scouring Microsoft’s job boards is quite productive. On this occasion we have some evidence that Microsoft is looking to bringing their Windows Phone 7 desktop client, the Zune software and service, to Apple’s computers and operating system.

The job posting , for a senior software design engineer in Windows Phone, talks about producing tamper-resistant software on “Windows, Windows Phone 7, Xbox and Mac OS X” and asks for an engineer with DRM and Cryptography experience.

OSX support for Microsoft phones are not unprecedented – Microsoft made a similar gesture with the KIN phones by bundling 3rd party software, but this appears to be a native and more ambitious effort.

While OSX is around 3% of the computer market worldwide it presents around 1 in 10 computers and USA and a vocal minority, with lack of synchronization with Apple computers being a common complaint in online reviews.
