“The endpoint management space has evolved from client management to enterprise mobility management, to UEM and now to endpoint security integrated with UEM. Over the years, we have developed all these capabilities in-house to meet market requirements at every stage. This organic approach allows us to provide a unified agent for all necessary workflows and added capabilities at no additional integrations or setup,” said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, vice president of ManageEngine, in response to the recognition.
ManageEngine was recognized in the report for its cost-effectiveness and diverse customer base in terms of geography, industry and size. Its unique OS deployer was cited for enabling fast imaging irrespective of the hardware. The company received the maximum possible score in the criteria of traditional client management, patching and remote support, in addition to performance and planned enhancements.
The report noted the company’s planned enhancements that include expansions to endpoint user experience management capabilities, the addition of automation management and improvements to its Zero Trust portfolio.
Keeping its telemetry engine as the foundation, ManageEngine intends to deliver proactive IT administration, allowing IT teams to easily zero-in on problems and provide single-click remediation for common issues.
As part of enhancing endpoint security, ManageEngine announced recent additions to its UEM portfolio, namely data loss prevention, anti-ransomware and endpoint compliance capabilities. With hybrid work here to stay, and with organizations noticing a 485% spike in ransomware attacks post pandemic, these timely additions will enable IT teams to future-proof their cybersecurity strategy.
