VMware Workspace ONE
Time to get everyone working from anywhere, any time, on any device, all without compromising security. It’s called VMware Workspace ONE.
VMware Workspace ONE is VMware's Digital workspace solution. It's a digital platform that delivers and manages any app on any device by integrating access control, application management, and multi-platform endpoint management. Workspace ONE is built on the unified endpoint management (Workspace ONE UEM, formerly known as AirWatch) technology and integrates with virtual application delivery (VMware Horizon) on a common identity framework. The platform enables IT to deliver a digital workspace that includes the devices and apps of the business's choice, without sacrificing the security and control that IT professionals need.
VMware Workspace ONE delivers on critical needs that organisations are having today and will have in the future. Today, end-users have multiple devices, with various form factors and operating systems. Many of these devices are not managed by IT, which makes it difficult to secure access when you cannot trust the device. Think about the apps you have to support today. In addition to the legacy apps that you’ve supported for the last 10+ years, you have modern apps (SaaS, mobile, etc) that sit in the cloud somewhere, outside the realm of the corporate network.
IT has struggled to keep up with the needs of the business and because of that, we see many business units and employees going around IT policy, a trend commonly known as “shadow IT”. Organisations are facing the critical decision to either ignore these trends at the peril of unintended security breaches or embrace the new way of work leveraging a new management framework. That is why in 2016, VMware Workspace ONE was introduced.
Consumer-simple app authentication
With Workspace ONE, end-users can get password-less single sign-on to a catalogue that provides them access to virtually any app. This includes mobile apps, web apps, cloud apps, and Windows apps. Once signed-in, end-users can self-service select the applications they need to be productive with no IT intervention. As an IT professional, you control the back end workflow to make this happen, but in so doing you’ve eliminated the deluge of help-desk calls for end-users to get access to applications and services.
Device management options
Workspace ONE doesn’t dictate which platforms to deploy in your environment. Our goal is to support any device…even devices that have not yet been invented. From desktop OS’s to mobile OS’s, even wearables, and 3D graphics workstations, we work with it. Beyond that, we also know that some of these devices may be corporate-owned and require IT to configure and manage them through their lifecycle, many will be owned by the employees themselves. VMware Workspace ONE puts the choice in employees’ hands for the level of convenience, access, security, and management that makes sense for their work style.
Network access control
To protect the most sensitive information, Workspace ONE combines identity and device management to enforce access decisions based on a range of conditions from strength of authentication, network, location, and device compliance. We provide a powerful policy engine so that you can mix and match these inputs to make dynamic decisions on the level of access end-users get. This means that if you need to lock down access to sensitive data from remote users on unmanaged devices, you can do that in just a few clicks. But we go one step further. We provide the end-user workflow for endpoints to get into a state that results in compliance, and thereby access.
Automated app management
Workspace ONE, supported by Workspace ONE UEM and Horizon virtualization technology, enables IT professionals to automate application distribution and updates on the fly. Whether you’re deploying Windows apps, mobile apps, or even virtualized applications, we automate the application delivery process to enable better security and compliance. This means that whether you need to deploy Windows apps to Windows 10 devices in your organization or up-to-date virtualized apps to mobile devices, Workspace ONE provides a single platform that keeps you covered every step of the way.
