Gartner also evaluated ManageEngine’s flagship UEM software, Desktop Central, for its ability to execute and its completeness of vision.
ManageEngine was included in the report alongside seven other vendors.
ManageEngine vice president Mathivanan Venkatachalam says the need for a unified tool to manage and secure employees’ devices is high, as more and more organisations tackle a hybrid workforce fast-tracked by the pandemic.
“This recognition by Gartner validates our alignment with our customers' requirements and our delivery of integrated device management and security," Venkatachalam says.
An IT security manager assessed the ManageEngine’s UEM software in the Gartner Peer Insights: "Desktop Central is a comprehensive tool to centralise your endpoint management across Windows, macOS and Linux machines. It offers operating system and third-party patch management with automation capabilities to test and deploy patches. Desktop Central provides great visibility via standard and custom reports, and great support services."
Highlights of Desktop Central
ManageEngine says Desktop Central automates day-to-day device management activities, from onboarding to retirement, across highly heterogeneous device and OS ecosystems.
It delivers requirements like remote support and endpoint security. This approach eliminates the need for multiple siloed tools for different requirements.
Desktop Central integrates with a range of IT management and security tools offered by ManageEngine and third parties, offering flexibility and ease to fit the UEM solution into customers' existing IT ecosystems.
