How is it determined if a patch is "missing" or not?

L1 Bithead

Hypothetical scenario:  All Windows 10 clients connecting to Globalprotect.  All are managed by System Center Config Manager.

I have a HIP Object that matches if there are any patches missing with a severity of 1 or greater.

I have a HIP profile with this object in it that denies access to a subnet if there is a match.

It is 2 days after Patch Tuesday, and a patch with a severity of 2 is released.

This patch has not yet been approved and deployed in System Center Config manager, as we're still testing it on a few virtual machines.


Does my security rule deny the traffic?

Where does GlobalProtect get the patching information from?  Is it relying on information from Microsoft (i.e., patch #1234567 has been released)?  Or is there some local client data that conveys what patches have been put out there in our System Center environment?
