Important Notice

Important Notice

As our business grows, and with more customers joining us, it has been necessary to grow our infrastructure accordingly to ensure we can continue to offer an ever-improving level of service to our customers.

To meet these needs, it has been necessary to extend the IP range from which scanning may originate.

The additional IPv4 range from which scans may originate is:

This is in addition to our existing network range of:




These IP ranges are exclusive to Outpost24, and any IPS whitelisting for PCI ASV scans should include these new ranges.

This information will also be available in the Support > Resources area of Outscan.

After the February release, as part of the ongoing performance improvements to Netsec (Outscan/HIAB) we will be removing information about which scanner was used from the findings in the report tool by default.
