What’s the news? AT&T announced that the City of Las Vegas implemented AT&T managed services for Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) to streamline its field communications. AT&T Cybersecurity Managed Services help to provide ongoing administration, support, and protection of thousands of mobile endpoints, allowing the city to focus on serving a population of roughly 650,000 and upwards of 40 million people visiting each year.
Why is this important?
For municipalities, such as the City of Las Vegas, UEM is essential for supporting first responders and field service workers who rely on mobile communications to serve its citizens. However, maximizing the value of UEM can be complex and challenging, especially during the pandemic when remote administration has become more important with employees working remotely. To support hundreds or thousands of endpoints, expert resources are needed to manage mobile device configuration and deployment, implement security policies, distribute applications, and address the demands of employees using their own devices, all while defending against cybersecurity threats.
AT&T managed services for UEM provide comprehensive, ongoing administration and technical endpoint management support to drive remote support efficiencies. With the services, IT staff can focus on strategic initiatives while AT&T UEM Consultants manage security and compliance policy tasks, authorizing device configurations, and updating configuration and lifecycle administration of the UEM.
