Patch compliance uses configured baselines to track the compliance of devices or device groups. Compliance is a metric that shows the number of patches in a baseline which are NOT installed on a device. Compliance checks are computed after every run of a patch scan on a device. This computed value is one of the following:
- A value of 0 indicates a device is compliant. This means that all patches suggested by an OS vendor are installed on the device.
- A value greater than 0 indicates that a device is non-compliant. This means that all patches suggested by an OS vendor are not installed on the device. The value represents the number of patches that need to be installed.
