Video: Adaptive Settings in LANDesk Management Suite

LANDesk Management Suite has a new feature called Adaptive Settings. Adaptive Settings allow you to control the way a device behaves based on its physical location. To see a demo of how Adaptive Settings enables devices to change their behavior based on their physical location, watch the video below.

Geofencing with the HP ElitePad

Did you know LANDesk Security Suite can be used to customize the HP ElitePad? This allows organizations to confidently purchase the HP ElitePad knowing that they can change its security posture based on its location. The administrator can “geofence” an area which results in a behavior change on the device. Some examples of behavior changes include: available applications, interfaces, peripherals, device locks and security scans. These options can be used to create a wide variety of security policies. Both the devices geographic coordinates and/or IP address can be used in determining the security policy. See how this works in the video below.
