Producing a report that is easier on the eyes

The report shown below is done using a pivot table with row labels in the following order:

Risk: Critical, then high, med, low, and none
Name (of the vulnerability):
Description:
Synopsis:
Solution:
Host (list affected hosts):

You can see that the report is created and does have all the data required to see our vulnerabilities, but is not at all easy to look at.  The affected hosts are shown redacted for the purpose of this post.

Please advise on how to make this report more visually appealing without any VBA code.

Just a thought but you might consider copying and pasting into Word (as a link, not an image), then formatting it there. Use Word styles to format the headings of each section (font should be larger). Add bullets to the beginning of each item (this could also be done with Styles).

You could try to change the pivot table layout to "Classic view" in the Pivot table settings, to see if that is better.
Then you get a table with columns and headings.
Remove subtotals and hide the value columns.

You should try Ejgil's solution.  It will make the report much more readable.  If you don't know how to change the pivot table to classic view, it's:

With active cell in the pivot table,
