Unify Endpoint Management Across Mobile and Desktop by Mark Margevicius

Session Description

Laptops continue to be an integral part of how people work. However, management practices and tools for PC environments, including Chrome, Mac, and Windows, have traditionally been different than those for mobile environments, such as Android, iOS, and BlackBerry. Users can work between devices like never before, and IT needs to keep up. The fragmentation of administrative and maintenance processes has decreased IT productivity and led to inconsistent security policies, app delivery and reporting–until now. PC and mobile platforms are converging and IT administrators can now support all user endpoints, including laptops, with a unified endpoint management (UEM) from AirWatch.
