This report enumerates known software developed by Adobe, such as Reader, Flash Player, Shockwave, and AIR.  The report displays information for enforcing and verifying IT management policies relating to assets, such as vulnerability, configuration and remediation policies.

SecurityCenter (via PVS, LCE, and Nessus) collects information about installed products, identifies those products using standardized industry methods, and presents that information via this report.
