Unified Device Management

What is Unified Device Management?

Unified Device Management serves as a single management platform equipped to securely oversee all mobile, PC, and other devices across an organization's network. Evolving from mobile device management (MDM) and sometimes called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions, unified device management uses secure platforms to enable access to corporate data and network applications across any device.

Unified device management, or unified endpoint management (UEM), programs allow users to access the applications and information they require while keeping their phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, and wearable technology (i.e. endpoints) secure and their personal information untouchable.

Unified device management solutions empower a business to control and manage authorized access to proprietary information, secure employee data, follow compliance policies on company assets as well as personal devices within the network, and maintain a consistent mobile environment across several diverse platforms and devices.

Unified device management applications bridge corporate schedules and clients needing on-demand availability by implementing virtual device management. Advanced analytics based on device usage data encourage corporate compliance, appropriate storage, and approved access to information. These applications use cognitive learning and natural language processing (NLP) to enhance the user experience.

Combining information protection and application management into one secure, seamless experience for clients and employees is just one driving force behind unified device management. Another is access to metrics and analytics. Additionally, having a way to securely transfer and exchange data across a corporations' network is vital to both the bottom line and turnaround time. Reducing travel time by allowing instant data transfers and cutting back on downtime for routine upgrades and maintenance are just a few of the ways that a unified device management platform saves time and money. Further, it extends the bandwidth of an IT department through upgrade automation and uninterrupted data exchange across the network.

What are the benefits of Unified Device Management for your business?

  • Security - Secure transfer and storage of data are paramount in this digital revolution. Unified device management allows for the managing and securing of all company and employee devices, ensuring authorized access and complying with all corporate regulations.

  • Instant Gratification - What had previously taken paper documents, travel time, key card entries, and all manners of compliance and security friction now takes just seconds and can be done with any device at any hour. This reduces lag time, turnaround time, inconsistency and errors, and overall frustration.

  • Device Discrepancy - Most people would argue that one device operates better than all others, but since everyone has their own opinion (and their own device), having a consistent environment across any operating system or platform is key to keeping your customers and employees content within the network.

  • Advanced Analytics - devise usage, data edits, information exchanges, and more can be accessed and analyzed to understand and promote compliance, innovation, and improved business practices.
