Scan Time Window

A Scan Time Window allows you to specify the time during which a target website can be scanned for vulnerabilities with Acunetix 360 online web application security scanner. For example, if you want to exclude all scanning activity during office hours, you can do so by configuring the Scan Time Window. So if a scan runs during that time, it will be automatically paused and resumed when scanning is allowed again.
