Pathways to Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)
Would you like to learn more Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) – and of course security – strategies? If so, please register for my November 12 webinar!
Title: Pathways to Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)
This year, businesses have dramatically accelerated their digital transformation journeys. They’ve sent users out of the office to work from home, moved more services to the cloud, and automated many parts of “back office” business processes, such as service desk, supply chain management, and customer support.
Amidst this new normal, businesses need a fresh approach to unified endpoint management that:
- Protects users by securing endpoints working outside network security boundaries
- Provides a low-friction user experience to keep the workforce productive
- Supports non-standard use cases, such as protection for IoT and Linux/Unix devices
- Enables businesses to manage access risk, reduce support costs, and comply with regulatory requirements.
Traditionally endpoint security is comprised of dozens of different solutions. I’ll be joining BeyondTrust’s Sean Moore to explore how to build a UEM strategy with security an a first-class citizen. Now here’s a few more reasons why you should join us.
Beware False Steps with Broad but Not Deep Solutions
If you look at the Gartner Magic quadrant, it makes the UEM market look like a two horse race. Both the leading contenders claim to cover security and do have some strong points. But neither provides a robust security solution for customers under medium or strong security pressure all by itself. To create a UEM strategy that minimizes ransonware and breach risk, customers must enable:
- Preventative as well as Detective approaches
- Detect compromised endpoints quickly, Respond decisively
- Build additional lines of defense
How to Get More Information you Need to Close Gaping Endpoint Security Gaps
Gaping gaps? If that sounds like FUD to you, please accept this apology. I say that because I’m fed up with reading about things like “over 80% of breaches are due to credential misuse (on phishing)” or anything else from a compromised endpoint. I mean, if that’s all its takes for a successful cyberattack, there’s no hope for any of us. I like to say that:
A Breach Caused by Credential Misuse Represents an Access Management Failure
That’s why I have a few more resources for businesses looking to build additional lines of defense on the endpoint and beyond.
