Getting started with Data Visibility reports

Your Absolute account includes a set of system default Endpoint Data DiscoveryEndpoint Data Discovery policies scan the hard drives of your managed Windows and Mac devices for confidential file content, such as personal health information, credit card numbers, and SSNs. Scan results are reported in EDD reports to help you identify at-risk devices. (EDD) reports. They show under Library on the Reports page.

Each default report contains a set of filters that controls the information included in the report. You can make temporary changes to the filter criteria to change the report results, but you can't save your changes to the default report. Similarly, you can temporarily add columns to the report, remove columns, and reorder the columns, but you can't save your changes to the default report.

If you want to save your changes, create a custom report. The custom report is based on the default report, but it includes your filter and column customizations. These reports are listed on the sidebar under Custom.

Depending on the permissions associated with your user role, and the Absolute product licenses associated with your account, the following Data Visibility reports may be available:
