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).

However, the specific capabilities of ZENworks Endpoint Security Management 11 are limited to the managed devices noted here.
