we have 20 windows pro HP tabs attached to an AD domain.
we are looking for a software that can do this:
-find the tab if we lost it, (and the location information most be on this software not on the cloud).
-reset the tab remotly (maybe just delete a folder i can't reset completly the tab).
-update some files.

i receive an offer for Landesk virtual Cloud Appliance but we can't deployed on a hyper-v servers.

thank you for your help.

We use something called Airwatch in our environment for MDM management of mobile and tablet devices.

It allows for updates to be pushed out to all clients/remote wipe/GPS Tracking.

I would highly recommend Airwatch to anyone with a similar requirement to yours.

You can install it onto windows server. If you have a look at their website the minimum requirements and specifications for the server build will be on there.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

ok thank you,
last question please,
we must purchase only x licence per device or we have to parchase another licence product for the server?

I think its device license based. Definitely one of the best mdm management tool in IT right now.

Absolute Software CompuTrace - http://www.absolute.com/en/products/absolute-computrace - is the software I would recommend, the location will be held in the cloud, but this also means if it is stolen the company will be able to monitor the activity and liaise with the police to recover the device.  It also offers a full remote wipe function and the software cannot be removed (device dependant).

Hope this helps
