Scan categories

Custom scans can be enabled for various categories within a security scan such as the antivirus 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 Antivirus 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. Expand Endpoint Compliance.
  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: antivirus, operating system, etc.
  7. Click the specific item within the sub-category (i.e. product name).
  8. Click the Custom Scans tab and select the custom scan 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.
