With increasing number of organisations, assets are also increasing rapidly. And managing these assets has become a cumbersome task because of endless endpoints such as desktops, laptops, smartphones, etc. UEM i.e., Unified Endpoint Management tool is one of the best ways to ensure that devices are properly managed, secured, well patched and accessible within one console.
Unified Endpoint Management is an umbrella approach for managing all the endpoints of an organisation centrally. It is an evolution of Mobile Device Management. UEM allows IT admins to secure, manage and deploy business applications on any device / multiple devices through one single console.

UEM is one source to all the features required in an organisation. IT admins can manage MAM – app deployment to multiple endpoints securely, various businesses which are part of the organisation can be accessed through organisational groups, easily push out device compliance policies, certificates, baselines, etc.
