What is cross-platform endpoint management?
Cross-platform endpoint management refers to a type of endpoint management that works well on different platforms or in different software environments. This is often a key feature of endpoint management systems because cross-platform capability is a key element in controlling and managing these distributed systems.
Endpoint management, a term often used in IT, is simply the management of various display endpoints such as: B. Desktop computers, laptops, tablets and mobile devices. End devices are managed in different ways: Network changes are managed at these end points on a daily basis. It also implements security at the endpoints and maintains connectivity and access to critical network information.
When IT pros talk about many forms of endpoint management, they don't use the term 'cross-platform' as they would take it for granted.
For example, if an organization has an endpoint management platform that routinely manages access and performance for iPhone and Android smartphones as endpoints, everyone would expect the endpoint management system to manage both platforms equally well. The term 'cross-platform endpoint management' could be used in endpoint security management, where 'endpoint management' is sometimes short for the types of security implementations used to monitor a collection of endpoints. Here someone could talk about 'cross-platform endpoint management' as an endpoint security solution that works across multiple systems, e.g. B. iPhone and Android platforms, or different types of operating systems on laptops and desktop computers work well.
