Keeping track of 10,000+ of anything is a management nightmare. With ongoing compliance and evolving attacks against vulnerable endpoint devices, getting a handle on managing endpoints becomes more important.
Client virtualization technologies are redefining the way IT resources are
delivered to end users, and creating exciting new opportunities for IT
organizations as they work to streamline and improve operations. By
abstracting applications and operating systems from client hardware,
virtualization enables client assets to be stored on central servers and
delivered to client endpoints.
The implications are profound. End users can log on to any networkconnected
computing device and access their custom operating system
and application environment. For IT departments, central management of
client virtual machine (VM) images brings efficiencies in everything from
routine maintenance and updating to operating system upgrades.
There is no fail-safe in today's digital world. Incidents will occur, both unintentional and malicious. To mitigate damage and organizational impact, the agile organization will respond quickly. To mitigate risks before damage occurs, an organization can maintain a continuous high state of security, ensure that all computing endpoints are in compliance, automate actions to shorten response time and enact measures to control infections with quarantine and until remediation is complete. Read this whitepaper to learn how IBM Endpoint Manager helps organizations respond quickly to today's threats.

The introduction of personal and mobile endpoints is dramatically reshaping the landscape for group video collaboration. IT leaders should align their video portfolios for maximum utilization and strategic fit with their related investments in collaboration and unified communications. Download now to learn more!
Historically in the enterprise, Macs have been managed separately from iOS devices in separate consoles, sometimes by different groups within IT. Traditional domain-joined management posed several problems for today’s modern enterprise. Nowadays, managing Macs like mobile devices means they can be configured over the air, without ever having to be domain-joined. That’s a major plus for global organizations, remote workers and companies who use contractors or freelancers. Unifying parallel device environments enables streamlined oversight, management and distribution of content across Macs and iOS devices.
With AirWatch® Enterprise Mobility Management, IT can implement a BYOD program and policy for all device types, ensuring personal information remains private. IT has a consistent management experience for all device types and operating systems, enabling a single-pane-of-glass view of all endpoints in an enterprise.
Unified endpoint management (UEM) enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. AirWatch is the first leading platform to unify these endpoints together and the benefits organizations are seeing is tremendous.
Take a look at our cloud-first, modern Windows management and security solution that fundamentally changes how IT approaches PC lifecycle management. Join us to learn how unified endpoint management helps organizations lower the cost of managing Windows deployments; streamlines securing endpoints, apps and data on any network; and delivers peak user experience across any Windows device.
• Consolidate your Windows management across devices on or off the domain
• Deliver and install Win32 software more reliably and quickly
• Deploy security patches instantly and remediate vulnerabilities faster
• Unify your endpoint management functions across desktops and mobile
• First look at how organizations are using UEM for Windows 10
Many Windows applications are traditional x86/x64 apps, which can be several GBs in size. To package and deploy apps to remote worker and branch office endpoints, organizations mostly rely on costly distribution servers, which are both capital and labor intensive. New Windows Software Distribution capabilities in AirWatch create a more efficient and enterprise scalable deployment experience that reduces bandwidth, infrastructure, and labor costs.
• Manage the full lifecycle of Win32 apps - including deploying apps, dependencies and patches
• Eliminate the challenges of complex app packaging, unreliable app installs and recurring OS imaging with App Stacks delivery
• Distribute apps to remote and branch users with CDN and P2P capabilities and eliminate your distribution server footprint
• Deliver apps in a unified app catalog and provide a consistent single sign-on experience for the user
Over 350M Windows 10 devices have been deployed in less than a year, and the recent Windows 10 anniversary update has accelerated the planning of Windows 10 rollouts for the vast majority of enterprises. This is the perfect time to evaluate your desktop deployment strategy. In this session, we will discuss the how VMware Horizon can enable your journey to Windows 10, and the benefits of centrally deploying Windows 10 through virtual desktops. We will also discuss how VMware provides a comprehensive solution by managing your physical endpoints through AirWatch as well.
When evaluating and migrating to Windows 10, it is critical to understand the use cases and benefits of various deployment choices. Should you
• Refresh or upgrade your existing deployments?
• Migrate your physical endpoints to VDI?
• Extend published remote apps to your Windows endpoints?
We look at these use cases and introduce SysTrack - a tool that provides recommendations on an optimal Windows 10 deployment approach your organizations should take.
How to protect against mobile malware.
Mobility is transforming enterprises at an unprecedented rate with the continued proliferation of smart devices, explosive development of mobile apps and increased access to work files. Employees are empowered by their organizations to be more productive at virtually any time and from anywhere, adopting policies for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and even allowing the use of personal apps for work-related activities.
However, organizations have not kept pace with this mobility explosion by deploying the enterprise-grade security needed to protect their sensitive information. Hackers and thieves are seizing on this opportunity to penetrate networks and acquire sensitive work data from mobile endpoints. IT and Security leaders need a modern and robust security solution to proactively detect, analyze and remediate these mobile threats.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatch®'s leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.

There is one certainty with cybersecurity and that is nothing is certain. Take for example the role the endpoint plays in keeping an enterprise secure. While many cybersecurity professionals are relatively certain that endpoints are locked down and security policies are being enforced, the simple fact of the matter is that endpoints prove to be the root of most compromises.
