By implementing UEM you can take a proactive approach to manage and safeguard user clients (PCs, laptops, mobile devices) by providing secure access to business content and applications.
According to Cybriant, companies use more than 5.8 billion endpoints – laptops, PCs, smartphones, tablets, etc.. However, managing such a large number of devices is very complex and requires a solution that enables the unified management of clients – endpoints.
UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) is an approach that enables centralized control of various types of devices from a single command point. Mobile devices, which have evolved into comprehensive workstations, along with the prevalence of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the increasing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, have become prominent concepts across many companies. UEM serves as the appropriate approach to effectively tackle the challenges posed by these trends.
When you implement a UEM solution, users can focus on their work without having to manage or secure their devices. It also makes working on remote devices more flexible, secure and hassle-free.
One of the primary objectives of UEM is to protect endpoints and data against threats. This is achieved by patching vulnerabilities, updating applications and automating endpoint security to minimise the reliance on manual intervention.
As compliance standards change, UEM helps ensure that all your devices stay up-to-date and compliant with the regulations.
UEM gathers valuable endpoint data that can inform business decisions and identify areas for improvement.
UEM and MTD solutions are designed to help organisations manage their growing mobile device fleets. However, they serve distinct purposes within the organization. UEM is designed to centralise endpoint management in an organisation, including mobile devices. It monitors configuration settings and can help enforce company policies for these devices. On the other hand, MTD solutions are primarily designed as security solutions. They help devices detect, protect and prevent cyber threats.
