Unified Device Management

What is unified device management? 

Unified device management, or unified endpoint management, provides a single, simple platform for managing and protecting an organization’s mobile, PC and other devices across its network. A unified device management software solution offers capabilities for managing and securing applications and content on myriad devices—such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, printers, internet of things (IoT) edge devices, wearables and more—across the enterprise.

Unified device management also increasingly includes zero-touch device provisioning to deliver ready-to-work experience for employees on first boot with apps and settings installed.

What are the business benefits of unified device management?

With a unified device management solution, an enterprise can:

  • Track, manage, protect and secure its resources and data, including personal files, websites and applications that employees open and share from their devices.
  • Control how employees access and exchange proprietary information, and ensure that only authorized personnel and devices can do so.
  • Manage a diverse mobile environment that includes iOS/iPadOS, Android, Windows and macOS devices.
  • Create security and compliance policies to keep data safe, and use a single, unified solution to ensure that both organization-owned and personal devices follow these policies.
