Manage Scans and Scan Results

The documentation below describes the new version of the Scan Scheduling feature in the Alert Logic console, which will become available in August 2020.

Alert Logic performs scans on all assets in your deployments. When you create a new deployment, Alert Logic automatically creates default scan schedules to perform external and internal vulnerability scans on all non-excluded assets, and it creates a default discovery scan schedule to find new assets in Data Center deployments. You can also schedule when you want to perform specific scans for all or selected assets.

For more information about scans, see:

  • Manage Scan Schedules—Explains default scan schedules and how to create and manage scan schedules, stop a scan in progress, and exclude assets from vulnerability scanning.
  • Adjust Scan Settings—Explains how to manage credentials, adjust scan performance, and use Scan Now to perform an immediate scan on an asset.
  • Analyze Scan Results—Explains how to analyze scan results by viewing vulnerability reports and by viewing exposures, along with remediations for the exposures, that Alert Logic generates for detected vulnerabilities.
