Tell me about Mandate Based Reports

Launch the Mandate Based Report to view the compliance posture of the organization in terms of the underlying Security baseline against selected Mandates. This allows you to choose any mandates/standards you have to comply with (or even the sub-requirements from multiple mandates to create a Union of the total requirements) and get a view of compliance posture in terms of their selected policies.

New Mandate Based Report menu option under Reports

You can select maximum of 3 mandates that are most relevant for your report. To view the list of pre-defined mandates go to PC > Policies > Mandates.

About Mandates

Select a maximum of 10 policies to evaluate data against the mandates in the report.

Choose Assets, Asset Groups, or Asset tags to draw data from for the report.

Time zone selectionTime zone selection

Choose your local time zone (GMT shift and location) and if your time zone observes DST, the "Auto adjust during Daylight Saving Time" option is selected by default. We'll automatically adjust the start time for your scheduled report during time changes. This option is disabled for locations that never observe DST like Arizona and Hawaii.
