Suspend a sensor

Suspending a sensor temporarily stops the sensor from running scans and causes all scheduled scan jobs and automations associated with the sensor to fail. A suspended sensor can be reactivated to full functionality. Past scan results from a suspended sensor remain available in CertCentral.

Before you begin
