Has Device control for Win 7 improved

Created: 16 Sep 2011 • Updated: 15 Nov 2011 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Version 11.x running on Windows 7 did not utilize the USB device controls like it did on XP.  Does Device control work on Win 7 x86 and x64 with the new 12.1 version?  Does it still work on XP?   Thanks

Hi,

SEP 11.x AD policy was applicable for only 32 bit OS machines only.

SEP 12.1 Supports application and device control policy on both 32 bit and 64 bit OS.

It would work on Windows XP also.

Check this article also.
