Microsoft, VMware, Ivanti Lead UEM Market As Hybrid Work Takes Over
Gartner’s new 2022 Magic Quadrant for UEM tools highlight the top six global vendors leading the unified endpoint management market, along with their strengths and weaknesses.
The virtualization pioneer and hybrid cloud software standout took home the gold medal for vision on Gartner’s UEM Magic Quadrant, while placing second in terms of execution.
VMware’s Workspace ONE platform provides top-notch employee experience through UEM, extensive virtualization, analytics, comprehensive security, remote access, apps and workflows. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company invests in helping customers drive workplace modernization, implement zero trust, improve the digital employee experience and reduce digital friction.
Strength: VMware is the only vendor in Gartner’s report with a complete package that includes device management, single sign-on, remote support, remote access, endpoint security, analytics, automation and virtualization. VMware also has SaaS capabilities through its BetterCloud partnership.
Weakness: Gartner said VMware customers committed to Microsoft 365 struggle to justify investment in a tool that is viewed as overlapping with capabilities they may already have under their existing Microsoft 365 licensing.
