Today, institutions use proxy products for the internet access of their users and arrange the internet access policies of their users by way of this device. Even though proxy takes on the internet access load of the institution by itself, it enables many changes during the day. Human based errors may occur during operations carried out in the day and these errors may cause difficulties for the institution with regard to information security. The objective of this study was to enable automatic detection of erroneous structuring on the proxy without any user feedback before the problem gets out of hand and to initiate the solution process starting from the time that the problem occurs.
