How can you differentiate between MDM, EMM, and UEM?
UEM, EMM, and MDM are the different evolutionary stages of mobility management and addresses the security and privacy concerns raised as a part of modern business trends. The primary difference between the three lies in their management scopes.
Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) is an approach to integrate the management of all endpoints (desktops, laptops, tablets, wearables) along with mobile devices in a secure, cohesive manner from a single console. It puts forward the evolved version of enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile device management (MDM) and incorporates advanced management services such as identity and access management (IAM) for superior resource management.
Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), on the other hand, combines both mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) for securing corporate data on the employee’s mobile devices with the help of few other advanced management solutions such as expense management, content management, and security management.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) focuses on the basic management of mobile devices by leveraging mobile-level policies and putting security protocols to provision these devices.
