Configuring a gateway server

A gateway server monitors web traffic to provide actionable insights into the web applications used and helps enforce data protection policies like blocking unsanctioned applications.

Steps to configure gateway servers:

  • Select Cloud Protection from the application drop-down menu at the top.
  • Navigate to Configuration. Select Gateway Servers under the Server section.
  • Click + Add Gateway Server located at the top-right corner.
  • In the Deployment Type page, you have the option of running the Cloud Protection module in your production environment or as a trial using our setup. Once you've decided which you'd like to use, click Go.
  • In the Server Configuration page:
    • Enter a suitable name in the Alias field to identify the gateway server in the dashboard and reports.
    • Enter the Computer Name of the machine where you would like to run the gateway server.
    • Enter the appropriate Port number.
    • Retain the OS as Windows (the default setting).
    • Note: Windows is currently the only OS that DataSecurity Plus supports.

  • In the SSL Configuration page:
    • Choose the preferred Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions.
    • Note: You can select either one or more of the TLS versions as needed for your environment. SSL versions preceding TLSV1.0 are not supported.

    • Under Deep Packet Inspection, select the suitable Mode from the drop-down menu.
      • Enable: Monitors all web traffic content
      • Mixed Mode: Inspects only specific cloud applications
      • Disable: Does not perform deep packet inspection

      Note: All cloud applications that are part of the File Upload Reports are configured in Mixed Mode by default.

    Once Deep Packet Inspection is enabled, you will need to create or select an existing certificate authority (CA) certificate.

    You can create a new CA certificate either by clicking Create new CA Certificate button or by visiting the Server CA Management page and then following these steps.

  • Configure settings in the Proxy Chain page if the existing gateway server needs to connect to another proxy server for connecting to the internet. Enter the details of the proxy servers as applicable.
  • Proxy setting Required details
    No proxy --
    Auto proxy --
    PAC proxy PAC script location
    IP proxy IP address with port

    PAC Script Location: The URL of the Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file that contains scripts on how to handle web traffic requests.

  • Run through the settings in the Review Summary page, and click Save.
  • Upon successful configuration you will be directed to the Manage Agent page.
