Cloud Provider Settings
In the Cloud Provider window, you can enable cloud integration.
Usually, Scan Agents are manually installed by users. And, the host machines of those Agents should be kept running in order to run a Scan with an Agent on those machines. When a Cloud Provider is configured (currently, only Amazon Web Services is supported), Acunetix 360 will also scale the Scan Agents. This means that when a Scan is started, Acunetix 360 automatically starts an instance, runs the Scan, and then terminates that instance.
Cloud Provider Settings is available in the Acunetix 360 On-Premises Edition only.
