Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) in 2022

Unified Endpoint Management is gradually becoming the way to manage devices in the future. Many organizations trying to handle thousands of endpoints are looking for a perfect, custom-made UEM solution.

Unified endpoint management (UEM) is an architecture and approach that allows a centralized command center to govern many types of devices such as PCs, cellphones, and IoT devices. These systems aid in making various networks safer and more efficient. Unified endpoint management (UEM) refers to a group of technologies that allow companies to protect and manage a variety of staff devices and operating systems from a single console.

According to the researchers at Infosecurity Outlook, IT departments seem to experience difficulties integrating old systems on these new devices, resulting in greater IT costs. Unified endpoint management makes connecting these systems easier while also saving costs and reducing threats.

Advantages of Unified Endpoint Management

Companies can use UEM solutions to monitor and manage all their endpoints, including mobile devices and traditional endpoints, in one place. UEM systems’ design and ability to replace many standalone solutions bring considerable benefits to a business, including:

Threat Detection: Cyber attackers and other threat actors are increasingly targeting endpoints as they migrate outside of the corporate network and its perimeter-based defences. UEM solutions have a thorough understanding of the endpoints they monitor, allowing them to spot unusual activity or signs that an endpoint has been hacked. This allows security teams to respond to suspected threats before they harm company networks, data, or applications.

Single Pane of Glass Management: The ability of a business to monitor and manage the devices used by its remote workforce is hampered by remote and hybrid work. UEM solutions allow a company to manage both mobile and traditional endpoints from a single platform, allowing for better visibility and management.

Cost Savings: UEM tools provide a single solution for monitoring and managing all of an organization’s endpoints, resulting in cost savings. UEM reduces the capital and operational expenditures (OPEX/CAPEX) of managing an organization’s IT infrastructure by eliminating the need to acquire, deploy, maintain, and operate multiple standalone solutions. It also allows security teams to scale to meet their needs as their responsibilities grow. 

Importance of UEM

UEM solutions give a centralized view of all the endpoints connected to your network and allow you to manage them centrally and remotely without having to gather data from on-site and off-site device management tools; the UEM solution takes care of everything. This solution also makes it easy to keep track of device usage and health, such as vulnerabilities that need to be patched, operating system updates, and software or application updates that need to be distributed. When these features are combined, you can provide a baseline level of security and threat monitoring across all your endpoints, including personal mobile devices.

Unified Endpoint Management also helps in keeping track of device usage and health, such as vulnerabilities that need to be patched, operating system updates, and software or application updates that need to be distributed. When these features are combined, you can provide a baseline level of security and threat monitoring across all your endpoints, including personal mobile devices. Some UEM systems even include built-in security features that allow you to safeguard your endpoints from malware, viruses, and harmful software.


Unified Endpoint Management systems support consistent and stringent security rules across the board. Having such consistent regulations makes it easy for the IT staff to locate, monitor, and resolve any endpoint-related issues. As a result, purchasing a single UEM solution is more cost-effective and productive than purchasing multiple solutions that fulfil distinct needs.

Magnet Forensics Introduces Magnet IGNITE

A provider of digital investigation solutions, Magnet Forensics, today released a version of Magnet IGNITE, a cloud-based screening solution that allows organizations to manage rapid, remote scans of target endpoints for malicious and insider behavior.

Adam Belsher, chief executive officer at Magnet Forensics, commented, “When enterprises suffer cyber-attacks, it is imperative that they react both quickly and efficiently to minimize downtime and the monetary and reputational damages that come with it. Magnet IGNITE is a strategic first step for enterprises to turn to in their post-incident plans that can provide a quick and early assessment to pinpoint the systems involved with malicious or insider activity. With this information in hand, security teams can save time and resources by only performing full forensic analyses on impacted endpoints.”

Magnet IGNITE is the very first product to emerge from the Magnet Idea Lab, a network of beta testers that enable the organization in developing the next generation of digital forensics technology. Magnet IGNITE has been tested by 263 people since March 2021. Professional service providers and Fortune 500 firms in the telecommunications, healthcare, and technology industries were among the participants.

The newly launched Magnet IGNITE helps remediate many remote endpoints at the same time, giving digital forensic and incident response teams an early case evaluation that will help them plan the next stages in their security investigations. Magnet IGNITE helps organizations determine where and when they need to execute full forensic studies by swiftly gathering intelligence and assessing a suspected cyberattack or an insider’s exfiltration of intellectual property.

The Managing Partner of CYBIR and Former President of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the High Technology Crime Investigation Association, Michael Nelson stated,  “During testing, we immediately saw the value that Magnet IGNITE brings to data breach investigations. Data breaches can happen anywhere in the world and one of the most powerful features of Magnet IGNITE is that it allows us to investigate how they happened, the actions the threat actors took, and what data was exfiltrated, from any remote location. Our customers need these answers as quickly as possible to minimize business interruption and Magnet IGNITE has enabled us to provide them hours — and sometimes days — earlier.”

CrowdStrike Acquires SecureCircle to Extend Zero Trust Data Protection

CrowdStrike Holdings, a leading company in cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection, announced the acquisition of SecureCircle, a SaaS-based cybersecurity service that extends Zero Trust security to endpoint data. CrowdStrike will strengthen its leading Zero Trust endpoint security device and identity capabilities to incorporate data with this takeover. The all-cash deal is expected to complete in the fourth quarter of CrowdStrike’s fiscal year.

By securing the hub of enterprise risk — the endpoint – CrowdStrike has transformed security for the cloud era. CrowdStrike will enhance data protection with SecureCircle’s technology, allowing customers to implement Zero Trust at the device, identity, and data levels. CrowdStrike intends to resolve complex problem that all organisations face, data protection, with a simple solution – enforcing Zero Trust control at multiple levels, all deployed through CrowdStrike’s lightweight Falcon agent on the endpoint – by combining forces and leveraging SecureCircle’s innovative capabilities.

Zero Trust Data Protection Reimagined

In 2021, the market for data loss prevention (DLP) and related technologies is expected to reach $3 billion. Even billions of dollars are invested in legacy DLP technologies, data breaches via inadvertent leaks, ransomware, sophisticated cyberattacks, and other sources continue to occur at an astonishing speed. Clients demand a solution to protect data without compromising the user experience, as DLP has failed. CrowdStrike promises to rethink data security using SecureCircle’s technology, enforcing encryption on data in all three states (in transit, at rest, and in use), allowing clients to secure data on, from, and to endpoints. Clients will be able to govern data access and usage regulations for each user based on their Zero Trust score when integrated with CrowdStrike Zero Trust Assessment, providing dynamic risk mitigation.

“Data loss prevention has suffered from a lack of innovation and legacy tools have completely failed to live up to the promise of preventing breaches. At the same time, the endpoint has become the focal point for how data is accessed, used, shared and stored,” said George Kurtz, co-founder and chief executive officer of CrowdStrike. “CrowdStrike will be setting a new standard for endpoint-based data protection by connecting Zero Trust enforcement to the device, the user identity and, with this acquisition, the data users are accessing and using.”

Jeff Capone, chief executive officer at SecureCircle said, “We are excited to join the CrowdStrike family, and integrate SecureCircle’s revolutionary data protection solutions with the industry leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection. The endpoint in today’s enterprise is everything, and coupling our cloud-native approach to protecting sensitive data with CrowdStrike’s industry leading Zero Trust endpoint security will enable customers to enforce Zero Trust on the endpoint across all levels.”

Talon Launched First Corporate Secure Browser for the Hybrid Work Environment

Talon Cyber Security has developed a new secure browser solution designed to address the new threats that the workforce faces. It is designed considering employee experiences. Talon Work is a browser based endpoint security solution for distributed workforce. Talon also announced an investment from top cyber security global leaders.

“Today’s work from anywhere world demands a flexible and secure working environment, and as a result, modern security must be frictionless by design. Talon’s browser-based security solution takes a fresh approach, putting the user experience front and center while extending the security of the enterprise,” said George Kurtz, co-founder and CEO of CrowdStrike.

In order to protect its growing global hybrid workforce, Talon works with some of the leading employers in the United States via its unique technology. The corporate browser of Talon can be installed in less than an hour across the entire organisation, allowing security officials to make the browser their first line of defence with minimal complexity, cost, and no extra hardware. Talon enables organisations with dangerous operation to better secure and control access to sensitive data and resources, to accelerate onboarding in multiple working scenarios and to quickly and efficiently recover disasters.

“With the shift towards a hybrid workforce, more known and unknown devices are accessing the organization’s most sensitive data on premise and in the cloud. Therefore, we must ensure frictionless and secure access to the data, no matter the device or the employee location. Talon provides exactly that,” said John Thompson, recent former Microsoft Chairman.

“It is equally important that the next generation of cyber solutions are designed for ease of use, and optimized for a remote work environment. In this regard, Talon’s solution is spot on,” said Mark Anderson, former President of Palo Alto Networks.

The revolution of the workforce and in the pandemic the growing trust  of SaaS services turned the browser into the main entrance to the organisation in general. The browser is also the most vulnerable application and the businesses have witnessed information stealers extracting browser credentials, malicious extensions stolen zero-days in the wild. The multi-layered approach of Talon ensures enterprise level security regardless of the endpoint: device malware resilience, browser hardening, zero day exploits and browser-integrated data leakage prevention mechanisms.

“To enable this instant shift to distributed workforce, many organizations were forced to quickly patch security gaps using their current IT stack. Talon offers a new and first to market approach and a strategic alternative that is practical and more sustainable. We are honored to have the leaders who shaped the face of cybersecurity on board with us, sharing our vision and mission,” said Ofer Ben Noon, Talon’s Co-founder and CEO.

User and Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA) – Buying Guide

User & Entity Behaviour Analytics

UEBA technologies employ analytics to construct standard profiles and behaviours for users and entities (servers, routers) in an Enterprise firm over a period. This is referred to as “baselining”. Activity that differs from these standard baselines is flagged as suspicious by UEBA technology and analytics applied to these anomalies helps in the discovery of possible risks and security incidents.

While buying UEBA Solution following points must be considered –

Data Sources – The UEBA solution must support various data sources.

A SIEM is a data gathering point for a wide range of security data from users’ directories, logs, and other security solutions. Over other data sources, SIEM information has the advantage of being readily available to put into a security solution.

Endpoint data is collected by a smaller number of security vendors. Most collect data directly or from a SIEM via an existing endpoint. User behaviour related to application, network, and cloud activity can be found in endpoint data. It is an important data source.

For security analysis, two more data sources are critical. The log data from major enterprise software like SAP and Oracle. Gathering this information will provide more insight into cyberattacks on organizational operations and financial information.

Machine Learning and Behavioral Analysis

A security analytics solution’s purpose is to swiftly detect threats across the company, particularly those that are often undetected by conventional methods. Behavioural analytics establishes a distinct baseline for each company’s entity. These activities should be linked to the participants like users/accounts, machines, apps, data, and other digital assets are examples of entities. Probabilistic approaches can measure how irregular an occurrence is by computing an appropriate risk score as entities engage in anomalous activities. So, machine learning algorithms play a key role in identifying cyber threats. Machine learning also defines the baseline for behaviour and does behavioural analysis. Hence, companies should look for a UEBA vendors who have extremely efficient and accurate machine learning algorithms.

Incident Response and Investigations

When in incident response, the purpose of UEBA is to clearly identify and present a threat. UEBA will give a security team actionable information about the issue so that it can be prevented before data is compromised. To respond to an incident the UEBA solution should clearly identify and present a threat. It should include possible responses to the incident. So, firms should look for vendors who present incident information with good quality information and visual graphs. The companies should also assess what various investigation and incident response options are provided by the vendors.

Ease of Use

Complex user interfaces have hampered security products in the past. The majority fails to show where the biggest risk is in a comprehensive manner and what the nature of that risk is. Typically, tools’ dashboards will display the change over time, some events, such as a potentially dangerous IP address or malware fingerprint. These tools require rigorous training to master. Hence, companies should look for UEBA solution with user-friendly interface and customization options.

Performance and Scalability

The UEBA solution should be scalable. Security analysis will be done on the firm’s all endpoints across different sources like customers and vendors.  This results in billions of processes per month utilizing heavy storage. The UEBA solution you must be designed to cope up this scale.  In addition, the UEBA solution must be able to scale up down quickly and handle data in real-time as per business requirements. 

Use Cases

The major use case for UEBA solutions is the identification of multiple types of threats, which is accomplished through analysis of frequently correlated user and other entity behaviour. Monitoring for unauthorized data access, suspect privileged user behaviours, and generally improving detection processes are examples of use cases.  However, non-IT and non-security data sources are frequently required like analytics models detecting fraud. So, these analytical models learn from uses case-based data. Hence, better the use case increases threat detection accuracy. So, companies should look for UEBA solutions with rich and quality uses cases and analytical models.

Cost and Support

It’s important to look into the type of assistance that a particular vendor offers. In any case, comprehensive technical support is an optional extra that could dramatically increase implementation expenses. Due to the fact that UEBA products have an expiration policy, which means the vendor will no longer support them, the cost and number of software upgrades must be considered. The cost of UEBA varies based on the features, power of analytics, size and capabilities of the network. What is the maximum amount of money that a company is willing to spend? Is the business concerned about ROI? The second step after selecting a UEBA product is to implement and support it. To be effective, UEBA must be administered by dedicated trained workers or added to the responsibilities of professional staff. There are disparities in terms of costs and levels of service assistance.
