LAS VEGAS: LANDesk Software has announced the availability of client management capabilities for the recently introduced HP ElitePad tablet. LANDesk is enabling the ElitePad through Management Suite 9.5 and the Cloud Services Appliance.


The HP ElitePad stands out from other tablet devices because it provides users with both the robust power of a PC and the ultra-portability of a tablet in a single, enterprise-ready device. By offering the option to run on the Windows 8 operating system, the ElitePad also addresses the consumer-like functionality that employees have come to prefer for both personal and enterprise computing. Due to these increased capabilities, the ElitePad requires the management needs of both a PC and a tablet. Management tasks that are straightforward for a PC can be difficult, limited or impossible for a typical tablet device. What’s more, IT organisations must take into account tablet-specific management and security challenges, such as finding lost devices, securing corporate data when devices are lost or stolen and dealing with SIM cards, mobile apps and more. LANDesk and HP have partnered to provide a solution for these challenges that allows users to take advantage of the powerful capabilities and flexibility that the ElitePad offers, without causing IT organisations the additional pain and overhead of yet another management tool to master.

“We’re excited to continue our extensive partnership with HP and to further enable IT organisations to manage enterprise devices with increasingly consumer-like capabilities,” said Steve Daly, CEO, LANDesk. “With the ElitePad, end-users are provided with the functionality of two devices in one and IT can rest assured that they have full management capabilities. Thus, end-users are given the computing freedom they desire, while IT is able to maintain control.”
