Suspend a sensor

Suspending a sensor temporarily stops the sensor from running scans and causes scheduled scan jobs and automation 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.
