Unified Endpoint Management (UEM): the most complete security solution? 

unified endpoint management / uem


The issues of decentralized endpoint management  

Using multiple endpoint management tools to manage and secure different devices in different locations is common practice, but it has major drawbacks, such as a manual and repetitive workload for security and IT teams. An increase in the risk of inconsistencies, misconfigurations and errors that can leave end devices and the network vulnerable to attack is also a pain within companies. unified endpoint management  

However, the changes that the Digital Workplace has brought to the daily lives of employees entail a number of risks, including financial slippage and loss of control over usage. To prevent companies from using more resources and funds than they should, they need to optimize spending on their Digital Workplace, or outsource this task.  


A tool that is more comprehensive than MDM and EMM

Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) is a tool that enables companies to manage and secure their entire IT estate from a single console for Windows 10, macOS and Android.  

Considered the next generation of mobility software, UEM solutions integrate several existing EMM management technologies, including mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM), with some of the tools used to secure desktops and laptops. UEM solutions offer an integrated approach to endpoint management, updates and security, encompassing not only mobile devices, but also computers, tablets, connected objects and other devices.  

Unlike MDM, which focuses primarily on mobile device management, and EMM, which also includes mobile application management, UEM broadens the scope by providing a unified platform for managing all types of endpoint from a single management console.   


What does UEM offer 

With UEM, IT administrators and security teams can view, manage and secure all endpoints connected to the corporate network from a single interface. UEM solutions support a diverse range of operating systems, including Apple iOS, MacOS, Google ChromeOS, Android, Linux and Microsoft Windows, as well as a multitude of devices, from laptops and desktops to printers and IoT devices, connected watches, virtual reality headsets and virtual assistants.   

Some tools can also support Blackberry OS and Windows Phone mobile operating systems. Administrators can perform or automate various pre-project, build and run management and security tasks.
