View policy reports

Sophos Cloud Optix automatically generates reports for all out-of-the-box and custom policies.

You can use these reports to assess the compliance status and get detailed information on the checks carried out and the number of checks passed or failed.

To see the reports, do as follows:

  1. Go to Compliance > Reports.

    All the reports are listed, together with historical data for their pass rate.

  2. Click a report name to view the details, including when the report was last run and how many checks failed.

    You can export the report in PDF or CSV format.

  3. Click the Policy Name link if you want to open more detailed results, which show:
    • Individual items in the compliance requirement that passed or failed.
    • An automatically concatenated list of affected resources.

    The detailed results page also lets you create a Jira or ServiceNow ticket, suppress the item, and remediate (if applicable).
