Using multiple scanner appliances in parallel

Scan your asset group using multiple appliances at the same time

The "All Scanners in Asset Group" option lets you scan all the IPs in your asset groups using the scanner appliances in those groups. This option is available for vulnerability scans and compliance scans.

By default up to 5 appliances will be used for scanning hosts in an asset group. This default can be customized for your subscription. Please contact your Account Manager or Support if you are interested in this option.

I'm ready to get started. What are the steps?

1) Create an asset group. Add the hosts you want to scan, and the scanner appliances that will be used to scan that group.

2) Launch a scan. Select the asset group you want to scan and the Scanner Appliance option "All Scanners in Asset Group".

Want to scan multiple asset groups, with different scanners?

Appliance versions must be in sync

Software versions on appliances in the same asset group must be in sync: vulnerability signatures version and scanning engine version. Learn more
