Does windows update sensor monitor security updates?



Hi, I just want know if update sensor classifies security updates as critical or important? the reason for this question is because at the moment I'm hiding all the channels except critical but unsure if security updates fall under critical or important channel - i would like to monitor just security and critical update for our servers. thanks

This depends on Microsoft as it could be possible that they mark an update as critical or important. PRTG just check the flag on shows in this update in the channel.
