PM Security Cloud

Hi there, we have a locked down enviroment for certian computers, and they all say Security Cloud: Network Status Disconnected,


I was wondering what firewall rules I need to open in PM to allow the clients to connect to security cloud.

Below is out current Firewall rules for those secure machines.


Many thanks

    As far as I know, the F-Secure Internet Shield firewall module has an invisible, factory built-in rule to always allow traffic to / from the policy managment server and the ORSP cloud, so that they cannot be blocked out accidentally.


    If a customer really wants to turn off cloud-based reputation lookups (and accepts the corresponding 33-40% decline in detection efficiency against newly emerging malware!) than he can do so under the

    F-Secure / F-Secure Security Cloud Client 1.15 / Settings / Participate in the cloud = NO and Client is Enabled = NO settings, found within the F-Secure Policy Manager Console, rather than abusing the personal firewall module.


    Because of the above circumstances, I think the traffic blocking may happen in a gateway-level firewall at the customer's site, if they indeed operate a "locked down enviroment".
