Company Positioned in the UEM IDC MarketScapes on Apple and SMB Deployments
AUSTIN, Texas—MARCH 1, 2021 — ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, today announced that Zoho/ManageEngine has been recognized as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: "Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software for Apple Devices 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US46965620, January 2021)" and the "IDC MarketScape: Worldwide UEM SMB 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US46965720, January 2021)."
The company has also been positioned as a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: “Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US46957820, January 2021)” and the IDC MarketScape: “Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software for Ruggedized/Internet of Things Deployment 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US46957920, January 2021).”
According to IDC's 2020 Enterprise Mobility Decision Maker Survey, the concept of unified management of endpoint computing devices—PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets and so on—is rapidly gaining popularity in many organizations, with nearly three-quarters of US organizations either piloting or currently using a UEM solution. With UEM, organizations can provision, configure, manage, monitor and maintain multiple operating systems using a single solution.
"UEM solutions have evolved from catering to IT automation to becoming the platform empowering enterprises to allow their workforce to securely access corporate resources, irrespective of the device and their location," said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, vice president at ManageEngine. “Work from home has pushed I&O leaders to enable remote access to sensitive corporate resources while simultaneously ensuring employees and their devices are protected. Desktop Central has played a prominent role in helping our customers achieve this. We’re delighted with the positive recognition of Desktop Central in the IDC MarketScape, and it only increases our resolve to make our UEM offering more robust and deliver even better customer satisfaction."
More than 18 UEM vendors were evaluated by the IDC MarketScape as part of this year's Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Vendor Assessment.
In its assessment, IDC MarketScape recognized the tight integrations between ManageEngine’s UEM solution, Desktop Central, and the company’s wide span of IT solutions for IT service management, endpoint security, analytics, IT asset management and Active Directory management as a strength.
IDC MarketScape's UEM vendor assessment also highlighted Desktop Central's vulnerability management, patching capabilities and extensive automation of PC life cycle management routines. ManageEngine’s competitive bundling and add-on pricing across its product portfolio were also listed as strengths.
Under the Advice for Technology Buyers section of this year's report, the IDC MarketScape recommends organizations look for solutions that provide mobile endpoint support, strong UEM capabilities and a road map for customer success, a strong portfolio of adjacent and complementary IT products, a broad set of legacy and modern PC management support functions, capabilities for supporting BYOD users, conditional access controls and cloud-based delivery capabilities.
