Drumroll, please!

The eagerly anticipated report, The Forrester Wave™: Unified Endpoint Management, Q4 2023, is out, and we are thrilled to announce that we have been recognized as a Strong Performer.

We believe this recognition is a significant milestone in our journey towards innovation and excellence, solidifying our position as a key player in the UEM market. ManageEngine Endpoint Central seeks to assist organizations with charting their UEM strategy by enhancing their management and security portfolio.

In the rapidly evolving technological landscape where organizations grapple with managing and securing their diverse device estate, it has become a vital requirement to reevaluate and redefine endpoint management and security requirements. Keeping in line with this evolution in this year’s UEM evaluation, Forrester studied how UEM providers are trying to simplify endpoint management.

The Forrester Wave: A deep dive

Forrester is one of the leading global market research and analyst firms. The Forrester Wave presents an extensive assessment with a research methodology to evaluate and compare technology vendors in various markets. The evaluation is based on a set of criteria, including the strength of a vendor’s current offering, strategy, and market presence based on its revenue and customers.

Vendors are categorized as Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders, or Challengers based on their performance in these areas. The published report serves as a guide for buyers considering their purchasing options in a technology marketplace.

In the 2023 UEM report, Forrester recommended that organizations choose a UEM vendor that:

  • Enable automation through a comprehensive data strategy. Organizations that want to reduce complexity and cost must implement significant automation across their endpoint management estate. Data ingestion to drive automation will prove the most significant competitive differentiator for UEM providers over the next few years.

  • Help drive the convergence of IT and security operations.

  • Provide a strong foundation for digital employee experience (DEX). All vendors today support the basics of DEX delivery today: device configuration, app distribution, and integrated identity and access management solutions for single sign-on (SSO).
