The left-hand pane always shows, even when you click the other tabs on this page.

The health status (Green, Yellow, Red) is indicated by the color of the device icon. Depending on the compliance policy you’ve assigned to the device, network access is restricted when the health status is Yellow or Red. See Create compliance policy (Sophos Mobile administrator help).

The left-hand pane shows the following device information:
