Forrester has rated Matrix42 as a powerful solution provider for Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). As part of Forrester Wave™ Unified Endpoint Management Q4 2019, Forrester identified, researched, analyzed and rated the top 13 vendors. According to Forrester, Matrix42 complements its robust management capabilities with Endpoint Security. UEM is part of Matrix42's larger Workspace Management Suite.
"The mobile technologies used by European companies have matured enormously in recent years. While risk mitigation and cost control have been the main drivers, the focus today is increasingly on productivity and the employee experience. Nevertheless, IT security remains a top priority for IT managers. Especially User and Environmental Behavior Analysis (UEBA) in connection with data security will play a central role in 2020. Given this, knowledge of the context and scenario is essential for success - and UEM can meet these requirements," said Fabian Henzler, VP Product Strategy at Matrix42.
Matrix42 points out that while companies need to implement intelligent devices, apps and more, they cannot ignore the security and compliance issues they face. According to Matrix42, moving to a UEM solution that manages both mobile and traditional clients is an important step for most companies in Europe in terms of performance and security. The use of the cloud, service management and a fully automated Configuration Management Database (CMDB) are becoming increasingly important for large and medium-sized companies.
