 As we move on to "Work From Hone (WFH)" as an accepted way of life (for many of us, this always existed), what are the prevailing winds for Security Tools to check health & security with some type of home owned PC/Laptop/Tablet connecting to on premise & cloud resources?

I really thought there would be a clientless web based VPN solution that would also run a simple health check to the OS.
