InsightVM agents getting stop due to unencrypted handshake?

Has anyone else had the issue of trying to deploy insight VM agents in to an AWS environment which is protected by Proxies which don’t allow unencrypted traffic out?

the Insight VM agents send a unencrypted handshake of Rapid7.ping and expect a rapid7.pong in return in which after that is done, a SSL connected is established. however in this case our proxy is stopping the ping and thus the pong don’t come back and thus no connection is established.
