IP Intelligence - The Scanners category

Hi,

One of the categories that can be enabled to monitor or block with IP Intelligence via the ASM is "Scanners". The definition for this reads "The Scanners category includes all reconnaissance, such as probes, host scan, domain scan, and password brute force."

My question is, if this category is enabled and set to block, will it block search engine bots? Will any category in IP Intelligence block search engine traffic? As you can imagine, this is not a desired outcome.

Thank you

You will be fine. ASM or IPI will not block legitimate search engines.

Hope this helps,
