Performance settings for PCI scans

You can customize performance settings for PCI external scans. Go to your option profiles list and edit any PCI option profile, then go to the Scan section in your profile.

Important: Performance settings should only be customized under special circumstances by users with an in-depth knowledge of the target network and available bandwidth resources.

Did you know? Our Inference-based scanning engine uses adaptive technology. If the network response degrades during scanning, we automatically throttle back the rate in which packets are sent.
