Many organizations use outbound proxies to control the flow of traffic to and from their network. Outbound proxies can also be used for performing traffic filtering, inspection, and analysis.

It is not mandatory to use outbound proxies with VMware Tunnel, but your organization may choose to deploy them behind one or more VMware Tunnel servers based on recommendations from your security and network teams. For VMware Tunnel on Linux, AirWatch supports outbound proxies for the two VMware Tunnel components: Proxy and Per-App Tunnel. For VMware Tunnel on Windows, AirWatch supports outbound proxies for the Proxy component.
