Summary

Due to security concerns, some organizations may rely on a whitelisting approach to Internet communications. As Apex One as a Service relies on Internet communication for command and control management, the DNS Name/IPs used by Apex One as a Service may need to be whitelisted to allow this communication.

Public

Regardless of whether the servers are whitelisted by DNS or IP, the following ports are used.

  • Apex One: TCP 443
  • Apex One (Mac): TCP 8443

The recommended method of whitelisting is by DNS name. Apex One as a Service resides on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud infrastructure. As such, there is not a set of IP or IPs that the Apex One as a Service server operates on. By whitelisting the DNS name a large number of IP Subnets will not need to be whitelisted as the IP can be dynamically whitelisted based on DNS.

The first DNS name is the name for the management login. This can be found in the address bar when logging into Apex One as a Service.

Two other required names are the Apex One server’s DNS Name and the Apex One (Mac) DNS Name.

To find the Apex One name:

  1. Log into the Apex One as a Service (Apex Central) web console.
  2. Click Administration.
  3. Click Managed Servers.
  4. Click Server Registration.
  5. Verify that the Server Type is Apex One.

You will see the server name listed there.

Apex One as a Service resides in Microsoft’s Azure Cloud infrastructure. As such, there is not a set of IP or IPs that the Apex One as a Service server operates on.

Currently, Apex One as a Service resides on the US Central and Western Europe regions of the Azure Cloud. Microsoft provides a list of their datacenter IP ranges that can be used for whitelisting in an XML format.

Microsoft Azure Datacenter IP Ranges: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41653

From this page, you can download the current Microsoft provided Public IP list. Customers only need to import the following Region Name in IP Range file:

  • Region Name = "uscentral"
  • Region Name = "europewest"

For Smart Scan and Web Reputation, the following URLs will also need to be available for the agents:
