Question:
does CA SSO / CA Secure Proxy use  NMap tool in its product/Architecture?
Is it required for installation/update/normal functioning of the proxy server product?

Vulnerabilities related to Nmap reported on the server where CA SSO / Access Gateway are installed and based on the response it will be kept or removed from Server.
 
Answer:
There are no Function or code within CA SSO / Access Gateway that Call Nmap directly nor this tool is shipped with the product.
 There may be other tools or executable that uses it indirectly within the CA SSO / Access Gateway Product.

For this, Recommendations from CA is to update the version of the tool to pass vulnerability scan rather then completely removing the tool from server.
