User Agent Strings to Filter Scanning

List of Evidon User Agent Strings

In addition to whitelisting our static IPs (see here - Gadget IPs That Require Whitelisting By Customers Wanting To Be Scanned), some customers prefer to filter using one of our User Agent Strings.  If this is not manually set in Scan Manager, the user agent string used by a customer will be the Default Desktop.  There are 7 other strings set up that customers can choose. 
Use case:  We have a customer set to scan.  To make sure they allowed our scans to reach their pages, they whitelisted our IPs, and then to keep them from attempting to monetize our scans, thus segmenting our scanner hits from human traffic in their reports, they chose to filter our scans using the Evidonbot user agent string.

Below are the User Agent String options as they are listed by name in Scan Manager:
