Cloud based endpoint management simplified

A modern, secure, and agile approach to device management

The growth of remote and hybrid working, teaching and learning continues.

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, employees and students alike need the ability to work from anywhere, using any device to securely connect and access relevant resources to collaborate smarter in this connected world.

At the same time, IT Administrators need to know exactly which services users are accessing, on what device and ensuring they are doing so in a secure manner, to protect company data and support users from wherever they are.

So, where do you start?

What is endpoint device management?

Endpoint management is the process of controlling all endpoint devices connected to your network. It includes the tools, policies, and practices that your security and IT teams use to authenticate, administer, and provide access to these endpoints, both on-premises and in the cloud.

What is an endpoint?

From desktop computers, virtual machines, laptops, owned and personal smartphones, and servers to Internet of Things (IoT) devices, such as digital printers, security systems and switches, endpoints encompass any physical device that connects to or communicates with your network, cloud environment and its applications.

Why you need endpoint management services

Endpoint management ensures each and every device connected to your networks and cloud environments are secure and approved to access the resources your people need.

Effective management of these endpoints allows your IT Administrators to proactively manage and monitor all users, apps, networks, data and devices, all from a central location. Users remain connected and productive, while at the same time, risks are significantly reduced, and security is more robust and device performance is improved.

The Gartner 2021 Digital Worker Experience Survey revealed that 55% of full-time employees surveyed use personal devices for work at least some of the time. And with 70% of medium businesses, 74% large businesses and 66% of high-income charities with £500,000 or more in annual income all having experienced a security breach or cyber attack in the last 12 months, endpoint management and device security needs to be a top priority.

Endpoint management solutions

To secure your devices and data, organisations can deploy endpoint management software. These solutions can simplify device management through a variety of tasks, such as scheduling updates, ensuring passwords are changed regularly and keeping devices synchronised to reduce vulnerabilities across every device and cloud environment. 

With access to centralised controls, dashboards, reports, alerts and analytics, IT Admin can run automated updates, swiftly identify any security vulnerabilities, and establish strong endpoint protection policies. Effective device management can also improve efficiencies with the ability to work securely from any location, keeping employees productive while delivering a positive user experience.
