Scan History

Each Target has a record of all performed scans in its Scan History. Users can use the Scan History page to see details for all scans attempted on each Target location.

This section covers the following topics:

Scan History Page

The Scan History page is available in two modes:

  • Target level: Contains details for scans attempted across all Target locations under the selected Target.
  • Target location: Contains details for scans attempted on a specific Target location.

To open the Scan History page for a Target:

  1. Go to the Targets page.
  2. Expand the group your Target resides in.
  3. Hover over the Target and click on the gear er2-settings-gear.png icon.

To open the Scan History page for a Target location:

  1. Go to the Targets page.
  2. Expand the group your Target resides in.
  3. Expand the Target your Target location resides in.
  4. Hover over the Target location and click on the gear er2-settings-gear.png icon.

Property Description
Source The source Target location scanned.
For example, File path /root/sensitive/location.txt.
Start Date Date the scan started, in the format DD-MMM-YYYY HH:MM.
For example, 06-Jul-2018 06:34.
Duration Length of time taken for this scan.
Scanned Locations The total number of individual locations (files, database records, URIs) scanned within the source Target location.
Match Locations The total number of individual locations (files, database records, URIs) that contain matches.
Scanned Bytes The total amount of data scanned for that Target location (see Scanned Bytes below).
Test The number of matches found on this Target location that are known test data types.
Prohibited The number of matches found on this Target location that constitute prohibited data under the PCI DSS.
Matches The number of matches found on this Target location.
Inaccessible The number of inaccessible locations encountered during the scan.
Status The current state of the scan.

Scanned Bytes

The "Scanned Bytes" column displayed in reports may not match the physical size of data scanned on the Target. Files and locations on the Target are processed to extract meaningful data. This data is then scanned for sensitive information. Since only extracted data is scanned, the amount of "Scanned Bytes" may be different from the physical size of files and locations on the Target.

Examples

  • For compressed files (e.g. ZIP archives) or locations, the data is decompressed and extracted before it is scanned for sensitive data, resulting in a higher number of "Scanned Bytes" for the file.
  • For XML files, XML tags are stripped from the file before the contents are scanned for sensitive data, resulting in a lower number of "Scanned Bytes" for the XML file.
  • For image files, when the OCR feature is enabled, only relevant data is extracted from the file and scanned for sensitive data, resulting in a lower number of "Scanned Bytes" for the image file.

Download Isolated Reports for Scan

You can download isolated reports for each recorded scan in the Scan History page. The isolated report contains only results (e.g. match details and inaccessible locations) from that particular scan.

To download an isolated report for a single scan, hover over that scan and click on Save.
