McAfee ENS FW - Rule - Domain reachability (HTTPS)

I want to raise a question about the functionality within a rule in our  McAfee ENS policy.

Within the rule under ‘location’ you can configure a so called “Domain reachability (HTTPS)” check.


We use this to verify the circumstances of an endpoint.

We use multiple HTTPS-destinations within a single ‘Domain reachability (HTTPS)’-check.

Those multiple HTTPS-destinations are linked via an OR as by McAfee design.

Can you explain how and how often McAfee ENS does this check?

Are all destinations checked every time, or are the destinations checked until it succeeds and then stops checking?

When the HTTPS destination is not reachable is there a timeout until the system goes to the next destination, or are all destinations checked in parallel?

How long does a check take? Timeout?

Where, in McAfee ENS, can someone check if the configured destinations were reachable or not?
