Configuring General Scan Settings

Purpose: Run or schedule a vulnerability scan, as well as configure the recognition mode for discovered endpoint devices.

Location: Gateways > (gateway) > Device Recognition > General Settings


By default, the scheduled vulnerability and weak password scan is disabled. Be aware that security software and devices may detect the scan as a security event.

  1. (Optional) For Recognition Mode, toggle the following options.
    • Advanced
    • Standard

    Advanced recognition mode uses an active scan to help identify the category and open ports of an endpoint device. Selecting standard recognition mode may reduce the accuracy of the device category identification.

  2. (Optional) Click Scan Now to run an on-demand vulnerability scan.
  3. (Optional) For Enable, select On to enable a scheduled vulnerability scan, or Off to disable the scan.
    1. If you selected On, then select the scan frequency.
