Choosing a Scanner Appliance

When you launch or schedule a scan you can choose to scan IPs on your network perimeter (external) or inside your corporate network (internal).

You will only see the Scanner Appliance option if you have scanner appliances in your account. If this option does not appear, then your scans will use external scanners automatically.

 

External Scanning

Choose "External" to scan IPs on your network perimeter using our external cloud scanners.

 

Internal Scanning

Choose a single scanner appliance directly from the list by name.

Choose the "Build my list" option to select one or more scanner appliances.

Choose "All Scanners in TagSet" to select scanner appliances by tag. First you'll need to assign tags to your appliances by editing them. Then choose IP Network Range tags for the scan target. Learn more

Choose "All Scanners in Asset Group" to scan target asset groups using a pool of scanner appliances defined for each group. Learn more

Choose "All Scanners in Network" to launch scans using all the scanner appliances in your network.

Choose "Default" with asset groups as your scan target and we'll use the default scanner appliance defined for each asset group. Choose "Default" with IP addresses as your scan target and we'll use our external cloud scanners.
