VMware, Inc. has introduced updates to the VMware Workspace ONE solution. The Workspace ONE solution integrates application and access management, unified endpoint management VMware AirWatch, and virtual application delivery (VMware Horizon) to help organizations evolve silo-ed cloud and mobile investments, enabling all employees, devices and things across the organization to accelerate their digital transformation journey with a platform-based approach.
“As the benefits of digitization extend across the organization to include a broader set of employees and endpoints, there is an urgent need to break down technology silos and tackle shadow IT by standardizing on a digital workspace platform,” said Noah Wasmer, senior vice president, mobile products, End-User Computing, VMware. “VMware Workspace ONE is an integrated platform to deliver contextual access to all applications while delivering best-in-class endpoint management with market leading AirWatch.”
To accelerate adoption of digital workspaces, VMware is simplifying the experience for both IT and end-users with its Workspace ONE solution. Building on the Workspace ONE innovations, VMware will make it easy for IT to deliver unified access and single sign-on experience to Intranet applications that use Kerberos certs or HTTP headers, and will offer richer conditional access capabilities that combine real-time security hygiene with compliance automation.
Updates to the AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management portfolio will enhance support across OS platforms for mobile (iOS, Android), desktop (Windows 10, macOS), purpose-built (ruggedized) and IoT endpoints to simplify provisioning and end-user onboarding.
Lastly, updated Workspace ONE pricing and packaging will make it easier than ever for customers to evolve their current investments into a broader, more comprehensive end-user computing environment that spans all applications, end-users and endpoints.
Unifying Application Access and Extending Mobile Identity Management
The proliferation of applications and unsecured BYO devices accessing work data has made it difficult for IT to maintain security compliance and regulations while ensuring end-user productivity.
Current technologies and solutions only focus access control on specific attack vectors (cloud, network, endpoint) but do not unify the access control perimeter across all applications and endpoints.
Unlike other approaches, Workspace ONE combines identity and enterprise mobility management (EMM) to help organizations securely access all business applications and services with an improved end-user experience.
