We would like to detect what devices & what programs users are using to connect to the Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop. In particular, we would like to have an ability to detect the remote devices such as iPads, iPhones & Androids, identify the software used and allow these connections only for certain users based on combination of the client OS + software.

If it can be done in powershell to be run as part of the logon script, that'd be ideal.

You can take a look at The software is able to detect remote devices and you will see if it is ipad, iphone, android, fat client or anything else. On top of that you are able to log all the apps remote users are using. Please feel free to download it from our website.
