ZENworks Endpoint Security Management Technical Specifications


Product-Specific Information

ZENworks Endpoint Security Management 11 is a part of the ZENworks 11 platform, but is limited with respect to which devices it can deploy security policies to (effectively a sub-set of all ZENworks 11 the managed devices). This means that it shares a common agent, server and web-based console with all other ZENworks 11 products (ZENworks Configuration Management 11, ZENworks Asset Management 11, ZENworks Patch Management 11). However, the specific capabilities of ZENworks Endpoint Security Management 11 are limited to the managed devices noted here.

You can use ZENworks Endpoint Security Management policies on the following managed devices:

Windows Workstations:

  • Windows 2000 SP4
