Why does Alert Logic's external scanner scan IPs without restriction? Can you limit which IPs you scan? | Scanning FAQ

The industry’s transition to cloud computing is adjusting the way in which companies must conduct external vulnerability assessments. With the current ideology of spinning up a new host instance every time a change has been made, the host’s external IP can change as well. As a company spins up new instances and spins down old instances, their external IP range is in constant flux. This creates a challenge to limit and define a company's external scope of IP ranges to scan.

Alert Logic® supports the ever-changing needs of our customers by letting the customer dynamically define the scan scope. Proper Scan Scope selection is the responsibility of the customer.
