I have about 1000 windows 7 clients reciving Microsoft security updates and Forefront updates from my WSUS server. I also have a SCCM 2007 R2 server working in my network. Microsoft updates are not being distributed from SCCM for several reasons. This will probably be changed in some months, but until then I need some help getting good reports regarding the security on my clients. I need to get reports regarding update status with both Forefront updates and regular seurity updates.. I know I can get some report directly from wsus, but I was wondering if there is some way to get good reports from SCCM regarding this even if the updates are comming from wsus ? Can someone please help me build som reports please ?

I'm not your "Report writer" but have you looked at Desired Configuration management?  Load in "Security Baselines" and test your machines against them?

You could get good built-in compliance reports from SCCM if you were to migrate your WSUS infrastructure to SCCM's Software Updates though the WSUS API.


Once you've enabled your clients to use the "Software Updates Client" these would start reporting back to SCCM on their patch status and you could use SCCM's reporting features.
