Custom scans options within a category level

Custom scans can be enabled for various categories within a security scan such as the anti-virus or operating system requirements. When a host is checked for compliance with the security scan and one of the products within a category has a custom scan enabled, the custom scan is also used for hosts with the selected product. For example, if the security scan checks for the existence of AVG Anti-Virus and a Custom Scan has been associated with AVG, then hosts with AVG will also be scanned using the Custom Scan.

Before adding a Custom Scan to a security scan you must create the custom scan. See Windows or macOS.

  1. Click Policy > Policy Configuration.
  2. In the menu on the left click the + sign next to Endpoint Compliance to open it.
  3. Click the Scans option to select it.
  4. Modify the security scan that will use this custom scan.
  5. Click either the Windows, the macOS, or the Linux tab.
  6. Click the Category drop-down on the Modify Scan view and select: anti-virus, operating system, etc.
  7. Click the specific item within the sub-category (i.e. product name).
  8. Click the Custom Scans tab and click next to the Custom Scan name to be applied to this sub-category.
  9. Click OK to save the selected custom scan.
  10. Click OK to save changes to the security scan.
