IT asset footprints are growing rapidly in today's organizations. Managing these assets has become more challenging with the ever-increasing numbers of laptops, desktops, tablets, and mobile phones, which are otherwise known as endpoints. Endpoint management becomes even harder with heterogeneous devices, or with devices that travel outside of the organization's network. The best way to ensure your devices are being managed properly is by employing endpoint management software.
Unified endpoint management is an umbrella approach for managing all the endpoint devices within an organization from a central location. In general, a typical unified endpoint management solution provides secure 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. As shown by the list above, a unified endpoint management tool can include well over 10 distinct feature sets.
A single, centralized platform for endpoint management will help you avoid complicated integrations among different software on multiple platforms. You'll no longer need to compile, compare, and evaluate reports from different sources.
A unified endpoint management platform allows organizations to easily push out device policies, applications, and environments, meaning devices go from out-of-the-box to in-use faster and with better baselining.
Security is one of the primary concerns for any organization today. Recent ransomware attacks just prove how dangerous zero-day vulnerabilities can be. A unified endpoint management solution makes it easy for IT admins to keep track of suspicious activities across all endpoints.
Enterprises can monitor inventory, usage, vulnerable systems, and much more from one place. This visibility provides not only opportunities for cost saving, but also the ability to troubleshoot, diagnose, and resolve issues remotely.
All the benefits of a unified endpoint management platform combine to deliver the single greatest advantage to organizations: a unified corporate environment in which experiences optimized across the organization on corporate networks.
Desktop Central is a major player in the field of unified endpoint management solutions, providing highly automated and integrated tools that significantly reduce the workload and empower IT teams to troubleshoot rapidly, improve productivity and security, and reduce costs. This modern management tool has been featured in Gartner's 2018 Magic Quadrant for unified endpoint management tools, IDC MarketScape 2018 vendor assessment for unified endpoint management software, and Forrester's Now Tech report on unified endpoint management for 2018.
