How do I analyze the result of a Policy scan?

When performing a Policy scan there are a lot of different tests being executed to make sure all the rules are being fulfilled in order to pass the audit and this article will give you a brief introduction on how to analyze the result.

There are five different outcomes for each test and all the tests needs to be either Passed or N/A to pass the audit:

  • Passed – The test passed the audit. 
  • Failed – The test failed and needs remediation.
  • Unknown – For an unknown reason, the test could not be executed.
  • N/A – Not applicable for this audit.
  • Error – An error occurred; the test could not be executed.
