Modern businesses rely heavily on fleets of devices at the edge—smartphones, kiosks, tablets, point-of-sale systems and more—to streamline operations. Given the volume, purpose and dispersion of these devices, management and security are constant challenges.

Enforcing compliance across an entire device fleet is crucial from both a user experience and security perspective. Noncompliant devices not only affect end-user perception but also open the door for potentially devastating data breaches, leading to hefty fines and irreparable reputational damage.Traditionally, ensuring device compliance was laborious and error-prone. IT teams were tasked with hours of manual checks, software updates and configuration deployment on a case-by-case basis.

This goes without mentioning the significant burden on IT teams, leading to decreased bandwidth for new projects and other strategic initiatives. That’s why more teams are moving past manual processes, introducing automated drift detection and automated remediation for device fleets of all sizes. I believe the next frontier for advanced device management is automation. This paradigm shift across the industry is set to revolutionize management strategies and drive innovation forward for tech-first companies in a meaningful way. Here’s how.When your device management tools automatically monitor your fleet for devices in drift—those that have fallen outside of your set parameters or policies—in real time, it allows IT teams to move quickly and efficiently.

As automation alleviates the need to throw IT resources at routine processes, for example, this can lead to significant cost savings. Real-time monitoring, drift detection and remediation help reduce the likelihood of data breaches or other system disruptions caused by noncompliant devices. And when you don’t have to worry about device compliance, you can embrace new technologies quickly, better allowing you to scale your business.
