Optimize Microsoft 365 traffic

The Optimize Microsoft 365 Traffic setting allows ETP to quickly identify and resolve requests to Microsoft apps and services. With this setting, domains and IP addresses that are associated with Microsoft Office apps, Outlook, cloud storage, and more bypass ETP Proxy scanning. This one-click option automatically retrieves the latest domains and IP addresses from Microsoft to ensure requests are securely bypassed. By leveraging Akamai’s network of servers, this setting provides optimal routing to access these services.
