With UEM, system management and security together!
UEM brings together the visibility, management, and security of all devices connected to the network on a single platform. Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), which improves device performance, also improves user experience
Managing edge assets within a network is a complex issue. The blurred lines between managing endpoints and security bring risks. Managing a device and protecting it against threats are interrelated concepts. Therefore, Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) aims to respond to all device management and security concerns through a single platform.
Let’s take a closer look at the core functions of Unified Endpoint Management, which strengthens the security muscle of system infrastructures.
Discover and make visible!
Do you have full knowledge of the attributes of the asset in your possession? While network infrastructures are rapidly expanding towards uncertain boundaries, the devices used in companies today tend to get out of control with their numbers and features. On the other hand, external threats primarily select weak devices with un-updated systems, missing software patches. So the first step in securing the devices you own is to know what’s going on on your network.
Can you see which software is installed on your devices, whether they have received the necessary patches, and whether that device is permanent on the system? Not seeing a device going in and out of the system for a few minutes is sometimes a severe risk. UEM can provide you with this visibility and discovery through on-demand and passive discovery. It keeps your IT team on alert by scanning for devices and software on your network.
Pay attention to compliance standards
Now the security of devices also means compliance with various standards. From encryption to multi-factor authentication to remote management, many topics make up the components of compliance management. Companies may face legal sanctions due to violations of compliance standards such as HIPAA, which is especially important for multinational companies in the health sector, or PCI DSS, which provides security in credit card payments. UEM supports security by ensuring that every user and device complies with policies that the organization must follow internally or externally.
Be mindful of your patching priorities
To prevent system security weaknesses and ensure data security, technology manufacturers are constantly releasing patches. Unified Endpoint Management can provide excellent visibility into what needs to be patched and patched in system infrastructure. Thanks to UEM, it is possible to patch devices connected to the corporate network and devices outside the corporate network and create policies that automate patching in this regard. UEM can initiate automated processes for updating applications as well as operating system patches. As updates are released, it ensures deploying new versions on a network basis to the endpoints.
Users often want to use various applications to increase their productivity. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the balance between corporate information security and application usage. UEM Application Control allows you to not only identify applications running on devices but also restrict access. In some emergencies, the time required to make these restrictions is vital. UEM application control automates most processes, reducing time. With UEM, you can ensure that only the desired applications are installed. The goal is for users to have the right app at the right time with the proper access. Application control prevents unwanted applications from running, and sometimes you may need to uninstall an application from the system. UEM provides a comprehensive solution for application management, from installation to controlling usage, blocking, and uninstalling.
As the number of qualified and expert employees in the human resources of the organizations’ increases, the user rights of the computers used by these employees are gradually increased. Especially on the computers of some employees, it may be necessary to increase the user rights over time and sometimes to remove some rights. It may even become mandatory to assign administrator rights to some users. UEM Privilege Management gives IT teams the ability to do these things quickly and reliably.
Security of remote devices
In a world reshaped after the pandemic, remote working has become our new business-standard. Employees can now connect to the system not only with laptop computers but also with tablets and mobile devices. This new work style of the people means a large workforce and multiple endpoints that need secure remote access. It is crucial to establish rules and policies for the secure management of all these remote devices, regardless of their location, and ultimately understand that they are appropriately managed.
Unified Endpoint Management can manage remote devices by ensuring they are properly configured and always up to date. It can identify compromised or incompatible devices, preventing them from accessing specific data, services, or even the corporate network. The UEM can access the relevant devices, update the device to be compatible, and allow the required access.
In short, UEM provides management and security functions together while rapidly reducing management complexity. Thus, while increasing device visibility and performance, it also provides a robust user experience for your employees.
