How does it work?

Each target is scanned regularly so your network view is always accurate. In practice what this means is that as soon as you add a target to the portal we'll kick off the first scan; once that scan completes, we immediately re-enqueue the target for another scan, 24 hours later. It continues like this until the target is deleted.

Where can I find the results?

The results can be viewed on the Network page; all of which is explained in our Network view help article.

Can I launch a Network scan?

No, you can't launch a Network scan as they run automatically on a continuous basis.

Can I disable Network scans?

Yes, you can. To do this, head to the Scans page, hit the cog at the top and toggle 'Network scans' to off.

Where can I manage notifications?

All notifications are managed in the portal, via the settings page.


You can choose the frequency of your 'network summary' emails by visiting:
Settings > My account > Email notifications and scrolling to the bottom of the page.

In the email you'll see a summary of your network, including changes in services; the status of your TLS/SSL certificates and an overview of your active hosts and exposed services. Clicking through from this page will take you to the Network view of your portal.

Slack and Teams

Daily summaries can be enabled/disabled by visiting:
Settings > My account > Slack and team notifications and scrolling to the bottom of the page.

In Slack, those notifications will look a little like this:

In Teams, it's more like this:

How many ports do you check?

We check all 65,535 ports and services.

NB: This feature is only available for Vanguard users.
