Application Compliance service

The Application Compliance service ensures that your organization's network complies with your organization's software policies. By ensuring continued policy compliance, this service helps you protect your organization from outside threats and the use of unauthorized software. 

The Application Compliance service runs on the N-able N-central server to ensure that the software on the device meets the standards of the organization.

During the monitoring process, the Application Compliance service collects the names of the installed applications from the Windows registry and compares them with a default list of applications that is approved by your organization. Your administrator enters the list of names. When the service detects an application name that is not on the list of approved application names, it changes to a Failed state.

This service cannot use Self Healing.
