Unified endpoint management (UEM) is the practice of managing, securing, and deploying corporate resources and applications on any mobile device from a single platform. UEM is the next phase of EMM and combines the management of mobile devices with the management of applications and authentication. UEM gives organizations a centralized view of all their endpoints regardless of operating system or device type.
Unified endpoint management combines the capabilities of traditional Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions with additional features like application management, identity, access management, and endpoint security. UEM enables organizations to enforce policies and compliance, automate device provisioning and configuration, monitor device health, and troubleshoot issues from a unified platform.
Unified endpoint management solutions have become more critical in recent years due to the growing number of endpoints used within organizations, including personal devices brought in by employees (BYOD) and the requirement to manage and secure them consistently.
