Unified Endpoint Management: Tangoe’s Mobile Security Solution Serves More than Just Smartphones

UEM & PC Mgt Updates_Main blog page

Managing endpoints is a growing responsibility thanks in part to more connected mobile devices, increasingly sophisticated security attacks, and the bottom-line impact devices have on every company. That’s why unified endpoint management (UEM) is a key function for IT organizations, particularly those implementing a Zero-Trust security strategy.  

Over the years, companies have relied on Tangoe’s UEM services largely to help them secure and administer their mobile phones, and now more clients are asking us to manage their personal computers (PCs) too — both corporate-owned and employee-owned devices. But Tangoe isn’t just stepping up to those individual demands, we’re widening our solution portfolio for the benefit of all.  

Tangoe now offers UEM services as a standalone solution, helping companies of all sizes secure and manage their endpoints. Get the UEM brochure.

Previously, UEM was available only as a value-added service for clients using our broader mobility management solutions. While clients can still use our UEM solution as part of their full device lifecycle management, (pairing it with help desk and logistics services), we’re now unleashing UEM to also serve clients on its own.  

Key Benefits: UEM from Tangoe

  • Professional Services to design and implement a UEM solution  
  • Managed Services to handle daily deployments and administration 
  • Centralized management for all types of equipment in a highly integrated environment 
  • Streamlined processes through automated workflows across the device lifecycle 
  • The management of multiple devices, applications, updates, and user profiles across different operating systems   

Standalone UEM services are helpful for mid-size enterprises seeking a narrower set of award-winning endpoint management services, but they are also beneficial for our Channel Partners looking for more ways to capitalize on new growth opportunities. Through our partnership with CDW, Tangoe helped two companies customize and build their UEM platforms, integrating VMware Workspace One with multiple supporting tools such as Apple Business Manager, Android Enterprise, Samsung Knox. We also helped them deploy custom applications. One platform was deployed in record time — just a few weeks.
