ProxySG Software - SGOS

Issue/Introduction

Customer's security team has asked the Proxy team to install an endpoint agent to detect advanced threats on the ProxySG. Question is whether this is possible or not?

Resolution

ProxySG uses a propietary OS and is an object store rather than file system. There is also no installer hence it is not possible to install third party applications on the ProxySG.  It also does not run Windows or Linux and as a result no third party would be able to develop code for ProxySG.

 Any feature available on ProxySG is hard coded by Broadcom. This of course is a great security feature in itself.
