IT endpoint management used to be an easier game: Managers deployed user systems with custom images when employees were hired, and employees returned them on their last day at work. Even during deployment, users had minimal abilities to impact systems and devices that were centrally managed. Servers resided in physical data centers where they could be identified and accessed. Those were the days!

""By effectively isolating endpoints from browser-executable code, attacks that compromise end-user systems will be reduced by 70%, while eliminating the need to detect or identify malware."" -Gartner

Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
As a secure internet gateway, Cisco Umbrella helps you tackle the challenges of mobility, SaaS, and branch transformation by offering a single platform that secures access to and use of the cloud, SaaS applications, branch offices, and endpoints.
It's your first line of defense against threats -- anytime and anywhere your users access the internet, traffic goes through Umbrella first.

While it might be desirable to standardize end users on one or two types
of devices that all run the same operating system, most organizations
don’t have that luxury. Today’s users demand an extraordinary level of
flexibility and convenience—which means most organizations support a
vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs
and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even wearables
and IoT devices.
Today’s mobile landscape is very much a moving target. IT managers
must keep track of all types of devices and platforms, hundreds if not
thousands of applications and a threat landscape that changes by the
minute. In this ever-changing environment, IT staff often find themselves
drowning in mobile minutiae, overwhelmed by mountains of endpoint
data but unable to extract meaning from it or make business decisions
based on it.

Meaning it’s up to you to support a vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even the Internet of Things (IoT).
And not only do your users expect support for a wide variety of form factors, but they also require cross-platform support for all major platforms, including iOS and macOS, Android, and Windows.
To complicate the situation further, they run different versions of those platforms—for example, they may run Windows XP SP3, Windows 10, or anything in between.

"Managing and securing endpoints with conventional mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobile management (EMM) solutions is time-consuming and ineffective.
For this reason, global IT leaders are turning towards unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions to consolidate their management of smartphones, tablets, laptops and IoT devices into a single management console.
To increase operational efficiency, maximize data security and deliver on their digital transformation goals, they’ll need a UEM platform that does more than just promise success. The answer is a smarter solution, built for today, that brings new opportunities, threats, and efficiency improvements to the forefront.
With Watson™, IBM® MaaS360® UEM features cognitive insights, contextual analytics, and cloud-sourced benchmarking capabilities. It helps you make sense of daily mobile details while managing your endpoints, users, apps, document, and data from one platform."
The age of digital transformation is firmly here, and with it comes a seismic shift in how businesses must operate if they intend to stay relevant and profitable. Though the role of process in digital transformation is often over-hyped, in truth, it remains a critical element in the fight to win, serve, and retain customers. In this digital age, businesses must holistically reframe their investment in process automation. In short, a compelling vision for process excellence must underpin this digital transformation, thereby transforming customerfacing processes and digitizing operational processes.
The change is so profound that Forrester has renamed the category from business process management (BPM) to digital process automation (DPA). This shift, while continuing to drive down costs and drive up employee productivity, makes customer experience and digital transformation the primary success factors. This represents a powerful and necessary change of focus.

In today’s mixed on-premises and cloud IT environment, securing one network perimeter is not enough. This paper examines six common risks of this “perimeterless” world, and proposes six opportunities to strengthen security using Identity-as-a-Service.
This paper will explore the potential of applying business performance management (BPM) principles to advance document performance management (DPM) in a way that enables organizations to reduce costs; better manage documents as vital strategic, ?nancial and information assets; and secure positive returns on investments from outsourcing. An example of this approach — spotlighted later in this paper — is MAX, a document performance management system that enables companies to more effectively manage their document processes and outsourcing service providers.
