How do I move CWS discovery to CertCentral Discovery?

Overview for moving your sensors and scans to CertCentral Discovery

Managing discovery configuration in CertCentral Discovery is different from Complete Website Security (CWS), but we’ll make sure your important information—the IPs and networks you want to monitor—are transferred to CertCentral Discovery so you don’t have to do the work.

Moving your sensor and scan settings does not move certificate data discovered in previous CWS scans. However, CertCentral Discovery will be ready to scan your network again immediately following the sensor and scan transfer!

Transfer your CWS sensor and scan settings to CertCentral Discovery

  1. If you haven’t already, contact your account manager to set up your new CertCentral account and turn on Discovery.

  2. Explore the CertCentral console, including Discovery.
