- As Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) becomes increasingly important, IT managers will need to understand which UEM vendor suits their business the most
- ViewQwest’s UEM partner, IBM, was recently named as one of the only three leaders in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Unified Endpoint Management for its solution, IBM MaaS360® with Watson™
According to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Unified Endpoint Management in 2020, more than half of organisations will consolidate to a single console for endpoint management and security tasks by 2024. Currently, only less than 5% of organisations have a consolidated single console for endpoint management.
Endpoint management refers to securing the individual endpoints on a network (e.g. phones and laptops) and prevent cyberattacks on said endpoints. The main challenge with endpoint management is that endpoints must be manually protected if there is no single console to roll out security policies across the various points. Without automation, there is the risk of human-error factor in rolling out the policies as well.
Hence, there is an increasing need for a unified endpoint management (UEM) so that IT managers can simply control a single console to roll out security policies across multiple devices.

Choosing the right UEM vendor – a global leader in the industry
Most recently, ViewQwest’s security partner, IBM, was recognised as one of the only three global leaders in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Unified Endpoint Management in 2020 for its solution, IBM MaaS360® with Watson™.
Currently, ViewQwest is the only managed security services provider in ASEAN which UEM services powered by IBM MaaS360® with Watson™.
To be recognised as a global leader in UEM by Gartner is no small feat. Previously in 2019, there were a total of six leaders, including IBM, who has been identified as a leader by Gartner for seven consecutive years. IBM remains as one of only three leaders identified by Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Unified Endpoint Management in 2020.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Unified Endpoint Management identifies whether UEM vendors are leaders, challengers, visionaries, or niche players. This year, only 8 UEM vendors made it to the Magic Quadrant as compared to 11 vendors last year.
According to Gartner, leaders are identified as vendors with strong execution and completeness of vision scores. The “ability to execute” criteria evaluates the vendor’s ability to properly resource product development, marketing, and sales. “Completeness of vision” refers to the performance of a vendor’s product as it applies to current market needs and the ability of the vendor to innovate for current and emerging business needs.
As a testament to ViewQwest’s effectiveness in unified endpoint security management, it has been recognised as one of Asia Pacific’s top 10 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) by Enterprise Security Magazine.
