What is Unified Endpoint Management? 

The “U” in UEM refers to the “unification” of multiple Endpoints Management processes in a single console. UEM is a solution that enables management from a single “pane of glass,”. UEM is an approach to controlling and securing virtually all types of endpoints and enables endpoint provisioning, detection, deployment, troubleshooting and updating. 

Explain the evolution of mobile management – MDM and MAM.

UEM represents an evolution beyond earlier generations of device management, where different types of devices would each have their own management solution. Mobile application management (MAM) provides targeted management of apps and data.  

Mobile Device Management (MDM), enables the IT department to centrally provision, configure, manage, and secure mobile devices. 

What is the significance of Mobile Device Management (MDM)?

MDM solutions manage security configuration and security policy enforcement, along with data encryption, location tracking, and remote device wiping and locking.

How does MDM Compare to UEM?

MDM was developed to help businesses centrally provision, configure and monitor mobile phones that have access to enterprise systems and data.  

UEM represents an evolution beyond earlier generations of mobile device management (MDM) where different types of devices would each have a management solution.    

What is Mobile Application Management (MAM)?

Mobile Application Management (MAM) provides targeted management of apps and data.  MAM manages the applications: monitoring, patching, and supporting applications installed on an endpoint. As employers adopted bring-your-own-device (BYOD), vendors began to offer MAM solutions with more targeted management of apps and data. This means more granular controls over software, versus the actual device. 

What is Mobile Identity Management (MIM)?

As the overall field of mobility management evolved, new approaches emerged. These included solutions that dealt with mobile identity management (MIM) and mobile information management (also called MIM). These were sometimes packaged as enterprise mobility management (EMM) suites.  

What is Unified endpoint management (UEM)? Describe examples of UEM endpoints.

UEM relies on application performance indicators (APIs) to monitor endpoint device behavior. UEM does not actually handle endpoints and applications. Rather, the integrated system comprises a single platform for the deployment and monitoring of endpoints. It helps with the protection and security of enterprise applications and endpoints.  

Laptops, desktop computers, tablets, smartphones and other devices, such as mobile computers used in retail businesses are examples of unified endpoints. UEM manages and secures these endpoints into a single console in the same system. In practice, UEM relies on application performance indicators (APIs) to monitor endpoint device behavior.  

What are UEM security benefits?

UEM offers several security benefits. By providing a unified point of visibility, UEM enables security managers to monitor all endpoints, efficiently and in real time. Additionally, by enabling centralized definition, execution, and monitoring of security policies, UEM makes it easier to enforce security controls than is possible with multiple endpoint security tools.  

What is UEM vs. MDM vs. EMM?

MDM and EMM overlap in functionality with UEM. The solutions are similar.  However, UEM differs in that it is holistic. It encompasses all endpoints and all phases of operations, from monitoring to security. UEM software borrows the best elements of MDM and EMM and places them into a single, easy-to-use interface. Implemented correctly, UEM will make these functions available more flexibly than would be the case if they were used as point solutions.  

Why invest in UEM tools?

UEM is a wise investment for 3 reasons:   

Frame-1080

 1. Mobility has become more common and complex at the same time. As more employees work remotely, device variety and usage is on the rise.  

Frame-1080-1

2. Security threats are becoming more serious and challenging to mitigate.  

Frame-1080-2

3. Knowledgeable mobile administrative and security personnel are perennially in short supply. All these factors contribute to the search for unified toolsets which enable administrative efficiency and strong security.
