How IoT edge devices fit into unified endpoint management

Several years ago, the "intelligent edge" meant designing an IT strategy to support rich computing devices such as smartphones, tablets and PCs. But endpoints today aren't all what they used to be. Edge computing involves processing and analyzing data at the actual site where the data is created. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) software burst onto the scene to secure and manage new mobile devices. To streamline management, EMM providers added features that would converge control of PCs and mobile devices into one platform called unified endpoint management (UEM). In some cases, they added new identity management services to support linking users to their devices. The new edge includes billions of internet of things (IoT) devices that range from sensors to airplane control systems, each with varying levels of software intelligence and processing power. Integrating these IoT edge devices into existing endpoint management strategies requires IT to change the way it designs and architects three key management systems: device ...
