Supported device operating systems

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

For supported device types and operating systems for Citrix mobile productivity apps and MDX, 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.

  • Samsung SAFE and Knox: On compatible Samsung devices, Endpoint Management supports and extends both Samsung for Enterprise (SAFE) and Samsung Knox policies. Endpoint Management requires that you enable the SAFE APIs before you deploy SAFE policies and restrictions. To do that, deploy the built-in Samsung Enterprise License Management (ELM) key to a device. To enable the Samsung Knox API:
    1. Purchase a Samsung Knox license by using the Samsung Knox License Management System (KLMS).
    2. Deploy the Samsung ELM key.
  • HTC: For HTC-specific policies, HTC API version 0.5.0
  • Sony: For Sony-specific policies, Sony Enterprise SDK 2.0

Android considerations

Before upgrading to the Android P platform: Ensure that your server infrastructure is compliant with security certificates that have a matching hostname in the subjectAltName (SAN) extension. To verify a host name, the server must present a certificate with a matching SAN. Certificates that don’t contain a SAN matching the host name are no longer trusted. For details, see the Android Developer site article on Android P behavior changes.

With the release of Android O (version 8):

  • SSLv3 is not supported with Android O. Google no longer supports SSLv3 connections. This means that mobile productivity apps running on Android O devices cannot connect to internal servers that are using SSLv3 connections. If you have servers leveraging SSLv3, it’s important to address this limitations before rolling out Android O to avoid connectivity failures with users.
  • Support ended for Android 4.4x as of the version 10.6.20 public app store release of Citrix mobile productivity apps.
  • Citrix mobile productivity apps and MDX-wrapped apps are available on Android devices with ARM-based processors. They are not supported on Intel x86 or x64-based Android devices.
