Citrix Endpoint Management

Supported device operating systems

This article covers supported devices for enterprise mobility management with Endpoint Management. Because of platform restrictions and security features, Endpoint Management doesn’t support all functionality on all platforms.

For the latest versions of the mobile productivity apps and supported devices for MDX encryption, see Support for mobile productivity apps.

Note:

Citrix supports, at a minimum, the current and prior version of each major operating system platform. Not all features of the newer version of Endpoint Management work on older platform releases.

For deprecation announcements, see Deprecation.

    1. Purchase a Samsung Knox license by using the Samsung Knox License Management System (KLMS).
    2. Deploy the Samsung ELM key.

Android considerations

Before upgrading to Android 10 or later: For information about how the deprecation of Google Device Administration APIs impacts devices running Android 10+, see Migrate from device administration to Android Enterprise. Also see this Citrix blog.

  • Citrix recommends that you avoid enrolling Android 10 devices in legacy device administration mode. Google is deprecating Device Administration APIs, which impact devices running Android 10+. After the APIs get deprecated, enrollment of Android 10+ devices in legacy device administration mode will fail. Citrix doesn’t support enrolling Android 11 devices in device administration mode.
  • Citrix recommends using Android Enterprise for Android 10+ devices. For more information, see Migrate from device administration to Android Enterprise.
  • The Google API change doesn’t impact devices enrolled in MAM-only mode.
  • Also see this Citrix blog.

Before upgrading:

  • Ensure that your server infrastructure is compliant with security certificates that have a matching host name in the subjectAltName (SAN) extension.
  • To verify a host name, the server must present a certificate with a matching SAN. Citrix trusts certificates only if they contain a SAN that matches the host name.
