Ivanti Workspace Control components are trying to connect to internet services at akamaitechnologies.com. When the Workspace Control processes are stopped the traffic to these services also stops.

Ivanti Workspace Control uses Windows components from the system folder in multiple executables. For certificate implementation/validation it relies on crypto libraries from the Microsoft operating system. Certificate Chain Validation and the Certificate Revocation List (RCL) queries performed by these libraries are validated against internet services.

This traffic should be allowed as this is crucial for Certificate Chain Validation and the Certificate Revocation List queries. Failing to do so can result in errors as reported in the knowledge-base articles below;
