Is Your Endpoint Management Tool Creating More Issues Than It's Worth?

Technology is complex, but what separates good tech from the rest is its ability to take the complexities of onerous human tasks and automate them.

But what happens when the technology ecosystem you’ve built depends on software that increasingly needs human intervention, hands-on manipulation, and is less than successful at completing the tasks it was designed to do? That technology isn’t good enough for modern enterprises.

This is the conundrum many IT and SecOps teams at enterprise organizations find themselves in when deploying endpoint management software. In a post-pandemic world where a mobile workforce is the definitive standard and workers are resigning at record rates, enterprise organizations can’t afford to suffer the consequences of poor endpoint management systems that strain their personnel and leave endpoints unprotected.

Good endpoint management solutions don’t create a downward spiral of increasingly complex software systems that require IT babysitters and a patchwork of other technologies. Good technology automates, streamlines, and simplifies endpoint management and has a high success rate across all devices and networks. Before you find a better endpoint management solution, it’s crucial to understand exactly how legacy endpoint management software is failing your enterprise and your IT team.

Here are three reasons why legacy endpoint management is intrinsically fragile:

  1. It makes enterprise software ecosystems more complex and adds to the burdens of IT teams that manage them.
  2. It’s difficult to automate and wastes human resources that could be focused on higher-level tasks.
  3. It silos knowledge, making it hard to transfer responsibilities among team members and more prone to failure by human error.

There is a better way to manage endpoints that doesn’t rely on intrinsically fragile systems. It’s a solution that never goes down and maintains itself with little to no human intervention.

Companies who hang on to legacy systems in a mobile world will have to maneuver over more than just these three hurdles. In the white paper, 9 Ways Legacy Endpoint Management is Intrinsically Fragile, we take a deeper look at the three problems above and six other reasons legacy endpoint management is failing the modern enterprise organization:

  1. High cost of server infrastructure hardware and associated systems
  2. Centralization on servers reduces network resilience
  3. Network topology that is unnecessarily critical for proper functioning
  4. Poor cross-network capabilities
  5. Lack of parallelism from network throttling
  6. Inability to succeed over poor quality networks

Spoiler alert: All of them are easily fixed with a P2P network solution.
