    Hey Jessica, We use baseline based compliance reporting internally at osd365. We run 12 baselines dedicated to each month per year. The baseline is based on pre-approved updates.
    The baseline will include both Windows 10 and Office365 updates. Reporting compliance this way is more accurate because the result is Binary (1 or 0) 1 – Compliance and 0 – Non_Compliant.
    I’ll need approval to make the report publicly available. So watch this space.

DCOM hardening issue.

This application fails to authenticate with WMI on the SCCM server because Microsoft has not yet hardened DCOM on their Windows Preinstallation Environment. We are working on a different approach, but it will only be released during the first quarter of 2024. But until that time, the only workaround will be to uninstall the update corresponding to KB5004442.
