Policy reports give you instant information compliance or non-compliance of devices that are assigned to a policy, such as a requirement to run an antivirus software product, or to not host problematic software such as outdated operating system versions or Adobe Flash player.
For devices subject to a particular policy you will see various charts such as top vendors and top locations of non-compliant devices, a timeline that shows the development of compliance vs. non-compliance, and finally a list of non-compliant devices with compliance and non-compliance.
In the following example we have created a report for a policy that bans Adobe Flash Player from a set of devices.
Creating a policy report
In order to create a policy report, all you have to do is create a policy in WORKFLOW/AUDITS. This will automatically create a report for your policy. The major difference between a policy report and a policy profile is that the former will come with a bunch of charts and a timeline, which you won't find in a policy profile. A policy profile, on the other hand, includes a list of compliant devices.
