What is the difference between UEM, MDM, and EMM?

UEM, MDM, and EMM might sound like a weird code to someone outside of an IT department, but they’re actually superheroes that arose to protect organization’s data and make device management way more efficient!

Mobile Device Management (MDM) was the first superhero, keeping mobile devices safe and secure. But as more devices like wearables and IoT and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs entered the picture, MDM’s powers weren’t enough to support the needs.

Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) came along with combined powers of MDM and MAM to secure mobile devices and data. But still, the desktop devices were left out in the cold.

Finally, Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) arrived with the power to secure ALL endpoints from a single console. No more separate tools, no more worries. With UEM, all devices are safe and sound!
