What is Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)?

Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) brings the previously separate client management of PCs and mobile devices onto a single platform. UEM is a response to the fact that the boundaries between desktop, mobile and, increasingly, IoT devices are becoming increasingly blurred, which is why user companies are increasingly looking for a unified and therefore efficient solution to manage these devices. UEM combines traditional client management functions with Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) functions, making it the logical next step after EMM. In addition to efficient endpoint management, the goals of the UEM are a uniform user experience and reliable protection of sensitive company data.
