Unified Endpoint Management Sees Steady Growth



Has every industry today experienced some form of cyberattack? Growing alongside our thirst for new digital tools and techniques is our desire to explore methods of keeping employees and customers satisfied. But this innovation will always come at a cost: increased vulnerability. More companies are directing their IT efforts toward cybersecurity—tightened security measures, identity access management, risk assessments and disaster recovery—and toward business solutions that will make it easier to manage the overall IT environment made up of multiple technology endpoints.



This is why companies are increasingly adopting Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). It creates a central hub for securely managing endpoints, controlling complex workflows, introducing new efficiencies, eliminating wasted time and integrating with existing business processes.

In fact, a new global report from MarketResearch.biz shows the current Unified Endpoint Management market positioned to grow from 2017’s $1.43 billion to $9.67 billion by 2023. The report, Global Unified Endpoint Management Market Analysis, Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Threats, Trends, Applications, and Growth Forecast To 2027, has the fast growth of the UEM market attributed to in part a steadily growing awareness of what greater mobility and other key UEM features can provide businesses and their mobile workforces.

But for a more complete view of this solution’s success, you need to examine all stakeholders involved in the typical adoption process. Here’s how business professionals are contributing to UEM’s steady growth today.

The Modern Business Leader’s Role

Today’s business leader is concerned with protecting critical business assets—including data and team members—from cybersecurity threats and providing an ideal work environment that attracts top talent and encourages collaboration, productivity and innovation. They work hard to streamline internal processes, introduce efficiencies and better their business to position it for continued growth and successful change management. These leaders are adopting UEM to obtain a secure platform for endpoint control and compliance, which safeguards their team, their customers and their reputation.

But those business leaders who are unfamiliar with UEM and the problem with vulnerable endpoints need to take time to understand what really goes on with their IT efforts and business-critical information. This will help them take security seriously, get a grip on the modern digital environment and uncover the gaps present in everyday tools and systems.

Here are a few ways business leaders can bridge their IT knowledge gap:

  • Become familiar with and instill IT security best practices in their company culture
  • Learn about the benefits of UEM over EMM and multiple disparate management systems
  • Compare and contrast UEM vendors and UEM solutions and review basic benefits
  • Understand the dangers of using outdated IT protection practices and business tools
  • Work with their in-house IT teams and IT partners to address endpoint complexity

The IT Expert’s Role

IT professionals recognize that the continued need for advanced digital solutions to enable business transformation requires an equally advanced management approach that also comes with tighter security to endpoints and IT processes. The IT expert often vouches for the functionality and security that UEM brings to the table. They understand that unsustainable one-off endpoint solutions are dangerous and can create a shaky foundation for business leaders intending to fuel company growth through IT expansion. IT staff are also busier than before, weighed down by everyday tasks and left with little time to contribute to business innovation. UEM solves this issue for hardworking IT teams, freeing up time for more strategic efforts that power business leaders’ goals.

The UEM Vendor’s Role

The UEM vendor’s role in UEM growth and adoption is educational. By helping IT experts and business leaders better understand the benefits of this solution, they can address common concerns and business challenges and bring greater awareness to the increasing importance of security. UEM vendors must communicate to enterprises what UEM is, how it is different from other endpoint approaches and how it can specifically benefit teams. Getting this information across is vital to the success of many businesses, especially those struggling to stay afloat in their industry.

UEM vendors must share more of UEM’s benefits to interested audiences, such as:

  • UEM’s enhanced visibility, transparency and endpoint access and control
  • UEM’s centralized solution for security and endpoint management
  • UEM’s significant time, energy and cost savings through added efficiencies
  • UEM’s user-friendly remote endpoint management capabilities for remote workforces
  • UEM’s ability to power greater mobility and company-wide connection

The Future of UEM

Whether you consider this era of technology Industry 4.0, IIoT or something different altogether, we can all agree that the rapid advances we’ve made in tech will require safer and more effective management tools that can keep pace with digital innovation as it evolves. There is great potential for smart companies to outshine competitors through digital business tactics, IoT endpoints and smart devices that better connect teams, safeguard infrastructure, streamline processes and future-proof growth. UEM is paving the way for these businesses and will continue its upward trajectory as long as business leaders, IT experts and experienced IT vendors invest in the right technology and tactics.
