Compliance reports let you quickly determine which software updates your managed computers require. Compliance reports are used to determine if computers are up-to-date with the latest software updates. These reports are also used to check if a particular software bulletin or update is installed on your managed computers. This capability is useful if a specific security issue affects your network environment and a certain update addresses the problem.
You can start distributing software updates directly from report results. For example, if you want to quickly distribute all critical updates, sort the report results by Severity. Then, right-click all critical updates and click Download Packages or Distribute Packages.
