Scan Policies

Path: Scans > Scan Policies

Scan policies contain additional settings for active scans. The scan policy contains plugin settings and advanced directives for the active scan to follow. When an administrator user creates a scan policy, that policy is available to all organizations configured on the SecurityCenter.

You can upload policies created using Nessus by clicking the Upload Policy link under the Options drop-down menu. This opens a window enabling the selection of the policy file and addition of a name, description, and group. Audit files and credentials from the original policy are not exported and copied with the policy file.

The gear icon next to existing policies provide the ability to copy, edit, share, view (view details of), export, and delete existing policies.

For more information, see Add a Scan Policy
