QuotaGuard offers both a HTTPS Proxy and a SOCKS5 Proxy. 

But when do you use one vs the other?

If you are using an HTTP/HTTPS service (ie: API) then you should likely favor the HTTPS proxy

If you are using any other TCP service (ie: Database, FTP, etc.) then you will likely need to use the SOCKS proxy. 

If you have questions, or if this solution doesn’t work or fit your use case, please reach out to us at Support so we can help figure it out with you.


Working with sensitive data, like HIPAA, Financial, or Personally Identifiable Information (PII)?
