ManageEngine named a Major Player in the 2019 Forrester Wave for Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)

We are ecstatic that ManageEngine has been named a Contender in the Forrester Wave™: Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), Q4 2019 report. We’ve recently focused on improving the employee experience by working directly with customers to develop a deep understanding of the challenges employees face, and we believe this recognition validates those efforts.

The Forrester Wave

In the 2019 Forrester Wave™: Unified Endpoint Management report, Forrester identifies 13 providers that matter most in the UEM market and compares them using 23 evaluation criteria in the categories of current offering, strategy, and market presence.

Forrester advises UEM customers to look for providers that:

  • Enable a better digital employee experience.

  • Provide a path to modern management.

  • Natively offer advanced security features, especially Zero Trust capabilities.

The ManageEngine commitment to excellence

ManageEngine received the highest possible score for both traditional client management and modern device management, showing that our solutions are ideal for organizations with a hybrid environment, as well as those looking to migrate from a client management tool (CMT) to a modern management solution in the next couple of years. The report specifically notes: “ManageEngine excels in both traditional and modern device management.” 

We support full PC life cycle management (PCLM) of desktops (Windows XP to Windows 10, macOS, Chrome OS, and Linux) and mobile devices (Android, iOS, and Windows). Our tools cover every mobile use case, including full device management, app management, BYOD management, and line-of-business use cases, such as kiosks.

Enabling a better digital experience  

Forrester’s report highlights something that most of us have already recognized: Employee expectations have changed. They want to work how they choose—anytime, anywhere, and on any device. That’s why it’s more important than ever to empower every employee with tools that give them secure and seamless access to the apps and services they need to be productive. As you can see—and as Forrester’s report reinforces—UEM is critical to the success of the modern digital workplace.
