Is Tivoli Endpoint Manager OVAL and/or OVAL-ID compatible?

Resolving the problem

Yes, the TEM platform is both OVAL and OVAL-ID compatible..

TEM supports the OVAL standard as an important part of reducing IT security risk and improving policy and regulatory compliance. Built upon the OVAL vulnerability definitions, the Fixlet messages within the Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation Fixlet message sites enable the TEM platform to provide real-time vulnerability detection and remediation for heterogeneous distributed networks. From the TEM Console or Web Reports, an administrator can quickly display compliance and non-compliance results based on a vulnerability's OVAL-ID.
