ManageEngine Endpoint Management Solution Enhanced with Additions for Security

ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, announced the addition of data loss prevention for endpoints, anti-ransomware and endpoint compliance capabilities to its unified endpoint management (UEM) solution, Desktop Central. The company will be demonstrating the new security capabilities at GITEX Technology Week from Oct. 17-21 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Hall 7, booth #H7-C1.
Since the prevalent adoption of remote work, organisations have noticed a nearly 500% spike in ransomware attacks, not just adding to the evolving cyberthreat landscape but also impacting the business continuity of affected enterprises. Given that the hybrid work model is here to stay, ManageEngine announced the addition of anti-ransomware capabilities that aid in real-time ransomware detection, seamless data recovery and root cause analysis for organisations to future-proof their cybersecurity strategy.
ManageEngine observed in its 2021 Digital Readiness Survey that 83% of respondents globally faced a surge in security risks due to remote workers. To establish secure access to corporate data in the midst of these cyberthreats, organisations deployed a combination of solutions like Secure Access Service Edge, cloud access security brokers and Zero Trust. However, organisations still need to ensure the security of corporate data and prevent data loss on employees' endpoints. ManageEngine added endpoint data loss prevention capabilities with the goal of enabling its customers to restrict the exchange of data to trusted emails, peripherals and cloud applications, all from their existing UEM environment.   
To ensure continued security, organisations need to stay compliant with industry regulatory standards. ManageEngine enables this with its latest addition that helps organisations comply with CIS compliance for endpoints, in turn complying with PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA and other regulatory frameworks aligning with CIS Benchmarks™.
"The pandemic changed the way we work, distributing a highly centralised workforce and later pushing organisations into a hybrid work model. Cybercriminals leverage such changes to enhance the complexity of cyberattacks. Enterprises need to make constant additions to their cybersecurity infrastructure to tackle these new threats," said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, vice president of ManageEngine. "ManageEngine strives to continue adding enhanced security capabilities to its UEM solution, helping organisations combat the evolving threat landscape without the need for additional agents and setup."
ManageEngine has also been recognised as a 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Unified Endpoint Management Tools, with an overall rating of 4.5/5 from its customers and an 87% "Willingness to Recommend" in the UEM tools category. The honour is based on customer reviews received through the evaluation period ending November 30, 2020.
Pricing and Availability
These capabilities are available with UEM at $40 per year, per license. A fully functional, 30-day trial is also available, as well as the Free edition for start-ups and small businesses to manage up to 25 endpoints.
