According to a recent IBM report, a big trend is on the horizon of more sophisticated master data management (MDM) solutions, where the data and systems are subjected to analysis by machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). These tools greatly enhance security by keeping devices safe from malware and other cyber threats. They can spot anomalous behaviour, detect strange activity at ports, and potential efforts at exfiltration.
Together with that, advanced MDM systems can assign or enrol devices with pre-programmed data profiles, VPN access, software, and access privileges. This enables them to track, monitor, troubleshoot, and decommission devices as needed. For example, some MDM tools can wipe device data in the event of theft, loss, or breach. This sophistication is bringing a host of benefits to the MDM landscape that is rife with the cybersecurity threat picture in the light of growing WFM environments.
Another trend is improved security. While MDM has always had security features, the rise of mobility and work-from-home has prompted revising the security space. So the time is ripe for MDM to merge its competencies with unified endpoint management (UEM). Many experts are even coming up with improvised acronyms like UEMS (unified endpoint management and security) to describe this converged market.
At this juncture, there is a variety of MDM solution providers that are entering the market to cater to the different needs of enterprises in the MDM domain. To help choose the solution that best fits their requirement, CIOReview Europe has compiled a list of MDM solution providers.
