Create/Edit PCI Option Profile

Use a PCI option profile when you want to launch an external PCI scan. We provide the profile named "Payment Card Industry (PCI) Options" to get you started. You can also create your own PCI profiles.

See PCI Option Profile Settings below for help with the various settings that appear within the New PCI Option Profile. 

What are the steps?

Follow these steps to create or edit a PCI option profile:

1) Go to Scans > Option Profiles.

2) Take one of these actions:

2a - To create a new PCI option profile, select New > PCI Option Profile.


2b - To make changes to an existing PCI option profile, select a PCI option profile in the list and choose Edit from the Quick Actions menu. 

The New PCI Option Profile or Edit PCI Option Profile window appears (depending on the action taken). This is where you'll make your PCI scan settings.

3) Choose a tab on the left side of the PCI option profile window to see the scan and Additional settings available. Make your selections on each tab, and then click Save to save your PCI option profile.
