Unified Endpoint Management is the new buzzword in organizations providing additional security features to manage, deploy, and secure corporate resources and applications centrally on a diverse range of endpoints with different configurations, including mobile, desktop, laptops, tablets, wearables, IoT devices, and such others. The technology is increasingly gaining traction in most digital enterprises. The rise in remote work and consequent rise in the variety of unsecured endpoints is driving a surge in cyber-attacks and breaches. The increased number of cloud-based applications and resources has also contributed to expanding the attack surface. As a result, while UEM solutions provide some native security features like automatic OS upgrades, vulnerability, and patch management, DLP, and conditional access, vendors are increasingly adding advanced security capabilities for additional protection and support. Organizations are heavily investing in UEM solutions due to users’ need for better endpoint security. UEM vendors are integrating endpoint management and advanced security capabilities to ensure securely manage all endpoints with different operating systems and device configurations.
This Quadrant Knowledge Solutions Market Insight (MI) highlights that UEM vendors are adding advanced security capabilities either through in-house tools or by integrating with third-party solution providers. The insight highlights how UEM vendors are focusing on leveraging anti-ransomware and endpoint DLP solutions and integrating with multiple endpoint security solutions like Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) or Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP), Mobile Threat Detection (MTD), Zero Trust Security, Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to provide advanced security features.
Major highlights of this Market Insight include:
- Choosing UEM solutions over previous device management solutions
- What are the new technologies vendors are adopting to provide unified solutions under one roof?
- Examples of UEM vendors that are offering advanced security solution as part of their UEM suites.
“The integration of endpoint management and advanced security technologies is driving the next era of user flexibility, wherein users can work on their personal devices, access privileged data, and get support for new mobility trends to enhance user’s performance and productivity. It is an advancement over traditional mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM), and client management tools which provide centralized visibility and control over all endpoints, and help implement BYOD, WYOD, remote working, and other initiatives effectively” says Sachin Birajdar, Analyst at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions.
According to Divya Baranawal, Research Director at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, “vendors are aiming to offer efficient management of diverse endpoint ecosystem while ensuring a secure digital workspace by integrating endpoint management and advanced security capabilities.” “UEM vendors are offering advanced analytics like UEBA to enable advanced endpoint analytics and analyze user behavior to detect anomalies or threats ahead of time. Additionally, they are incorporating tools like multi-factor authentication, single sign-on, and risk-based conditional access to provide secure and seamless access to organizational applications and resources”, adds Divya.
