Remote Actions supported by Hexnode – A platform-wise comparison

Remote actions are instantaneous commands executed on the devices managed from the Hexnode MDM portal. These actions enable the administrator to perform remote management operations across devices, users, groups and domains within an enterprise. Actions available on the endpoints vary with OS platforms and device configurations. Based on the requirement, the organizations can selectively choose the devices individually or in bulk to execute actions on them. Here is the platform-specific compatibility of remote actions supported by Hexnode.
