I have a service provider that is preparing to perform an automated security scan of my application hosted on Digital Ocean. They’re claiming they also need permission from Digital Ocean to do the complete scan since they’ll be testing for vulnerabilities that aren’t directly related to my application but OS level things as well.
Is such permission required? If so, what is proper way to request it?
