You can search for information about the clients, client computers, and users to make informed decisions about the security of your network. For example, you can find which computers in the Sales group run the latest operating system. Or, you can find out which client computers in the Finance group need the latest virus definitions installed. You can view the information about each client in the group on the Clients page. You can narrow down the search if there are too many clients.
You can export the data that is contained in the query into a text file.
To search for most of the information about the users, you must collect user information during the client software installation or later. This user information is also displayed on the General tab and the User Info tab in the client's Edit Properties dialog box.
