Hello,

I believe you are looking under - 

Computer Status logs and reports >> 

Compliance options: Advanced Settings filter options for views of the Computer Status logs

This option is related to Symantec Network Access Control (SNAC).

The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is responsible for developing the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). This hardware component is used to increase the security and trustworthiness of endpoint computer systems. Many vendors, including HP and IBM, are shipping systems with Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support today. Ultimately, the TCG will be incorporating support for the TPM into the Trusted Network Connect (TNC) standard.

Once TNC standards include the TPM, corporate IT administrators will be able to determine with much greater certainty that a given computer requesting access to the network is indeed the system it is claiming to be and that the information they are relaying is, in fact, true. The TNC standard is the only one with a roadmap toward ensuring the authenticity of the client/server NAC communication. This will be a big benefit and will increase the security of the network.

Hope that helps!!
