How can we improve?

detect missing high priority microsoft updates

LanGuard automatically detects/deploys Microsoft security patches but does not in general automatically detect/deploy other high priority Microsoft updates. For that you need Windows Update or WSUS and stated in the link below. Maybe making LanGuard fully replace WSUS would be too much work, so I suggest at least a compromise: allow LanGuard to detect possible missing high priority updates by somehow having LanGuard monitor the Windows Update service to determine/report the date that Windows Update was last checked and whether any updates are pending (but not yet installed) in the Windows Update queue. Maybe this is very easy to implement, and maybe the same approach can also be used for other update services like Apple Software Update.
