What is the purpose of UEM?

The primary purpose of a UEM is to allow enterprises to manage and secure all personal and corporate devices like smartphones, tablets and laptops. Here are some important reasons why your business needs a UEM.

  • Data security: As the number of devices connected to the enterprise network increase, the network’s liabilities also increase as each endpoint acts as a gateway for a security breach. Using a UEM, you can secure all the endpoints on your network, decreasing your chance of experiencing a data breach substantially. Containerization of devices through a UEM will segregate personal and work profiles in your employee’s devices, reducing the chances of a data leak.
  • Efficient workforce: A UEM can distribute and manage data. Since all the data is stored in a central repository, employees have easy access to the data no matter where they are. A UEM can automate steps in managing your devices which saves time. The intuitive dashboard displays all the important information for an IT admin, vastly reducing the time and effort needed if you want to check each managed device individually.
  • Cost savings: With a UEM, you can adopt a BYOD policy that saves the exorbitant cost of purchasing devices. Devices running on various mainstream OS can be managed using a UEM, while not compromising on the security of a fully owned corporate device.
  • Remote management capabilities: Work from home is the way forward in recent times. With the devices scattered around the globe, there is a need to push configurations and monitor the devices remotely. Using a UEM, you can save time by remotely managing all the devices from a centralized platform.
