This is completely wrong. I work for a very large corporation which uses Blue Coat proxies, and they absolutely do not have trusted root certificates they can just use (amongst other things, this would lead to Symantec's cross-signing being revoked).

They do the thing any IT department can do, which is everyone either runs a pre-built image with the proxy certificates baked in, or people (like me) who get dev machines end up dropping them in to suppress the "invalid cert" warnings.

Power is not a serious problem at Mars distances. For the cost and scale of a manned Mars mission, football-field sizes solar panels are perfectly affordable and practical for the spacecraft - also compact to launch (relatively) and deploy since they don't need to support their own weight against gravity like they do on Earth.
