Computer Status

The Status tab in a computer's details page lets you see the computer's security health and details of any alerts.

It also lets you take action against alerts.

Security Health

These status details are only shown if the computer is using the Security Heartbeat feature.

The computer security status is reported by computers running Windows 7 and later.

This shows whether the device has threats detected, has out-of-date software, is not compliant with policy, or is not properly protected. The overall status is the same as that for the highest-priority item listed (red, orange or green).

Alerts

The page lists any alerts on the device. The details include:

  • Alert details: For example, the name of the malware.
  • When the alert occurred.
  • The actions that you can take. These depend on the type of threat or event and are the same as the actions available in the Dashboard.
