Today’s workforce is no longer desktop-bound. Your company’s employees have become digital nomads, constantly seeking new tools and technologies to work successfully from anywhere. They have a variety of devices to choose from, but, at the end of the day, IT must still manage and protect every endpoint, PC, macOS, user, app, and bit of data – even when they sit outside the traditional corporate network.
Furthermore, the growing proliferation of mobile apps also gives rise to inconsistencies in user experience, security posture, and support requirements that must be addressed to manage cost.
But what if you could simply and securely deliver and manage any app your enterprise needs on any device – while integrating access control, application management, and multi-platform endpoint management?
Meet VMware Workspace ONE® – An Integrated Digital Workplace Platform
Workspace ONE is a unified cloud-based enterprise platform that breaks down traditional silos so you can deliver any application to any device while easily managing and securing all your endpoints.
What we really love about the platform is that it enables IT to deliver one-stop, self-service access to corporate apps, without sacrificing the security and control that IT professionals need. Users can simply download Workspace One to their devices, enter their password once and access all their business apps and corporate websites, without having to login to VPN or sign into each app individually. Users can also use the search function in the Catalog, to quickly and easily ﬁnd apps that they need and get started immediately.
Features IT Will Love
While Workspace ONE puts employees in the driver’s seat it also gives IT the ability to control the back-end workflow to make this happen, and, in doing so eliminate the deluge of help-desk calls from end-users looking to get access to applications and services across all use cases including BYOD (by the way, check out our earlier blog on securing mobile devices and accelerating BYOD deployments).
This can also dramatically transform the onboarding of new employees and simplify laptop and mobile device configuration because it’s all done in a self-service manner.
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. VMware provides 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. Going one step further. VMware also provides the end-user workflow for endpoints to get into a state that results in compliance, and thereby access.
Now because, Workspace ONE is built on the VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management™ (UEM) technology and integrates with virtual application delivery (VMware Horizon®) on a common identity framework – IT professionals can automate application distribution updates on the fly. 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.
