You need to configure proxy settings for the said application. It needs to go through the proper gateway for internet access.

If you are using Windows, most applications use the system's proxy settings which can be accessed through Internet Options. Please try to configure this first.

Also keep in mind that ping works using ICMP packets, where regular applications and internet traffic uses UDP or TCP packets going through all kinds of different ports.
Your company firewall can allow or block traffic on IP, port & protocol base.

Please ask your network administrator if he would be willing to make a hole in the firewall by enabling ICMP packets from the computer that the ping application is working on to the specific IP address
