    This article describes the supported devices platforms and interfaces that can be controlled by LANDESK Device Control.

     

    Devices such as Android, Apple IOS, Blackberry, should be supported regardless of Operating System version installed.   Devices are controlled at the hardware and device driver level, and also by services provided by these devices such as "WTP, USB Storage, etc" so the Operating System does not have an effect on the ability to manage the device.

     

    The following Devices are built into the User Interface in order to easily select the platform.  More devices are supported by creating exceptions based on Instance Path or Hardware ID.  These values can be found in the Device Manager properties for each device.
