After you have successfully installed the Endpoint application and registered with the Cloud Services Portal, you can check the status of the service to ensure that your device is protected against malicious domains.

Endpoint uses three status icons to provide visual indication of the protection status: Protected and Unprotected. For Mac users, the status icon is displayed on the menu bar at the top of your desktop (Mac OS X). On the Windows platform, a tool-tip is displayed when placing the mouse cursor on the icon. 

In normal operation mode, the protection status is refreshed every 30 seconds. When the Control Application starts or in error condition, the status is refreshed every 10 seconds.

Endpoint displays one of the following status icons on your device:

  •   Protected 
    Endpoint is running properly, and your device is fully protected against malicious attacks by Infoblox Endpoint.
    This icon is displayed for the following states:
    – DNS queries are encrypted and are being sent to the BloxOne DNS Server.
    – DNS queries are being sent to the BloxOne DNS Server.

  • Protected
    If your device is connected to the corporate network, it is protected against malicious attacks by the corporate network.
    This icon is displayed for the following states:
