Endpoint Management - FAQ

What are Endpoints?

An endpoint is a device that is part of your organization's network that is used for communication and data processing purposes. All of the endpoint devices will be managed by an endpoint manager. For example: laptops, desktops, tablets, smart phones, etc can be managed by endpoint management tools.

What is Endpoint Management?

Endpoint management is the practice of managing and securing an organization's endpoints like desktops, laptops, mobile devices, servers and other devices in the network. An endpoint management software allows an IT administrator to perform all the required actions from a single console. Endpoint device management provides a streamlined process to carry out complex on-demand tasks like patching, deploying software, inventory scanning and many other with minimal end user intervention. An endpoint manager amps up the workforce productivity and safeguards the corporate network from vulnerabilities, cyber attacks and data thefts.

Which endpoints need to be managed?

All the endpoints that are a part of the network physically or remotely (e.g. laptops, servers, mobile devices, etc.) or have access to corporate data or Personally Identifiable Information (PII) should be monitored and managed using endpoint management solutions.

Additionally, it is crucial to secure the personal devices of employees that connect to the enterprise network remotely or are used inside the network. Be it the employee's personal mobile phone, tablet, or laptop, these endpoints should be strictly monitored since they have a higher chance of being exploited due to insufficient security procedures and protocols.

What is an endpoint management software?

An endpoint management software is a solution that manages and secures the endpoints in a network and applies policies to control/restrict access to these endpoints to safeguard them from internal and external cyber threats. Endpoint management software leverages agents (a lightweight application) installed in the endpoints to deploy software and patches, manage application control and device management policies, remotely troubleshoot the systems and so on.

What is an endpoint manager?

An endpoint manager helps you manage and secure your endpoints by performing mandate tasks and actions with the help of the endpoint agent. An endpoint is a device that is connected to the network and it contains sensitive corporate data. These endpoint devices are prone to security breaches and attacks if they are not monitored, managed and controlled. This is where an endpoint manager comes into play. 

How does endpoint management work?

Endpoint management can be streamlined in devices via an endpoint manager that leverages an agent installed in the devices managed in a network to collect data and perform tasks. It helps to collect the vital information like missing patches, vulnerabilities and other information like applications installed from endpoints in a network. This agent assists the endpoint manager in performing actions triggered in the central endpoint management software console. For example: scanning missing patches, deploying configurations, deploying software etc are some of the actions triggered by the agent in the endpoint management tools.

What are the benefits of endpoint management?

Endpoint management is a must-have for enterprises and organizations of all sizes and domains. Here are its benefits:

  1. 1) Secures the endpoints and makes them compliant: With a Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution, admins have holistic control over the managed endpoints in the network. A single dashboard enables them to deploy patches and updates against security vulnerabilities as well as restrict unauthorized access to sensitive data in the endpoints. This in turn helps enterprises adhere to compliance standards such as HIPAA, GDPR, etc.
  2. 2) Streamlines usability and boosts employee productivity: Endpoint management systems make it easier for admins to deploy the required applications or troubleshoot employee endpoints remotely with minimal hassles. This not only enhances productivity but also simplifies management and caters to the IT needs of the admins.
  3. 3) Improves visibility into the network assets: Large networks can be particularly difficult to manage, owing to the distributed set of assets. From managing licensed software to end-of-life operating systems, the list goes on and on. By implementing a UEM solution, admins can smoothly automate the asset management process by gaining visibility into the managed systems in real time and devise policies to address the issues or requirements.

Unified Endpoint Manager: Centralized Endpoint Management

A Unified Endpoint Manager (UEM) can help comprehensively address all the needs faced by the IT administrators from a central location. In general, a typical unified endpoint manager helps in security updates, patch management, automatic hardware and software inventory tracking, logging, mobile device management, software and OS deployment, workstation remote control options, license management, and overall quick remediation capabilities for IT professionals.

What is Unified Endpoint Management?

Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) is a solution that provides a centralized console for admins to monitor, manage and secure the endpoints in an organization's network, irrespective of their operating system or location.

Why is endpoint management important?

Endpoint management - the process of monitoring the endpoints in your network to track the activities and risks is crucial to maintain the security and productivity of your organization. Using an endpoint management solution, admins can monitor and keep track of end-user devices via various endpoint management tools like patch management, asset management, software deployment, reporting, and remote control that comply with organization requirements.

Endpoint Security vs Antivirus: Differentiating security solutions

While antivirus software helps in eliminating viruses and other malicious software that is already present in the system, an endpoint security solution will secure the vulnerable points across the network and help patch various systems to prevent any paths that can lead to security breach.
