VMware Workspace ONE Unveiled
August 29, 2017
will now have the ability to use Workspace ONE as a single solution to
enable unified endpoint management (UEM) and unify the end user
experience across all endpoint platforms including Windows, macOS,
Chrome OS, iOS, and Android. In addition, Workspace ONE will now
uniquely integrate application programming interfaces (APIs) from major
endpoint platform providers to stay in lock-step with the latest
innovations in devices and applications.
"The modern workforce is stretching the limits of IT as employees
embrace cloud and mobile technologies to perform work throughout the day
using a growing variety of endpoints and platforms," said Sumit Dhawan,
senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware.
"Partnering with major endpoint platform providers gives us the ability
to deliver a modern unified solution that enables our customers to break
free from silo-ed management stacks and user experiences. Workspace ONE
will give businesses the agility and security that is critical to
digital transformation initiatives."
Workspace ONE is the industry's first digital workspace platform that
uniquely integrates AirWatch endpoint management technology with
end-user identity to deliver a consumer-simple experience with
enterprise-class security. Workspace ONE will also extend the same
experience and security to traditional Windows environments with VMware
Horizon virtual application and desktop technology.
Bringing Market-Leading Mobile Experience, Management, and Security to
Windows, macOS, and Chrome OS Platforms
Legacy methods of PC lifecycle management struggle
to keep pace with the mobile workforce. Workspace ONE brings a modern
approach and delivers a secure, full self-service experience to end
users from onboarding to ongoing productivity, similar to a mobile
experience. Employees can now receive a new laptop and be up and running
in minutes with out-of-the-box enrollment and self-service applications.
This new approach eliminates a complex, expensive, and error prone
desktop management model, and security is strengthened with the ability
to quarantine and update any device in real-time using the cloud. This
same experience and security model is also available for Windows 10 and
macOS with Workspace ONE.
Workspace ONE will also offer cloud-based peer-to-peer (P2P) software
distribution technology to install large applications to distributed PCs
at scale. This capability eliminates the need for costly branch office
servers that requires silo-ed infrastructure management.
In addition, Workspace ONE is the first solution to manage Chrome
devices making it the industry's only digital workspace platform for iOS,
Android, Windows 10, macOS, and Chrome OS. Partners like HP further
validate the solution by powering the HP device as a service (DaaS)
offering using Workspace ONE.
"By streamlining the provisioning and management of endpoints among our
tens of thousands of associates, VMware Workspace ONE is helping us take
our productivity to the next level while giving users a consistently
great experience across all devices," said Jennifer Manry, vice
president, Workforce Technology, Capital One. "This enables us to
provide choice without increasing administrative overhead and empower
our teams to focus on what they do best -- building new software,
services, and breakthrough experiences for our customers to help them
with their financial health."
Transforming Traditional Windows Using a Modern Service Delivery
The only way to
deliver traditional Windows applications as part of a modern digital
workspace is to transform them using a service delivery architecture
that has invisible infrastructure and fully-automated management.
Horizon 7 integrated with VMware Cloud Foundation™ and Dell EMC VDI
Complete with Horizon Apps makes infrastructure elastic, integrating
compute, storage, networking, and infrastructure management together.
This eliminates the need for deep planning and operational visibility
for infrastructure components. Together with Horizon Cloud, customers
will now have options for elastic infrastructure for on-premises or
cloud. Furthermore, management of Windows desktops and applications can
be automated with the VMware Just in Time Management Platform (JMP) and
a technology preview that integrates JMP platform technologies (Instant
Clone, VMware App Volumes™, and User Environment Manager) into a single
console, that will further simplify management.
Quickly Embrace Office 365 with Better Experience and Security
Customers want to adopt Office 365 quickly but are
challenged with complicated provisioning and delivering secure
experiences across all endpoint platforms. Workspace ONE will now give
customers the ability to enforce and manage security policies and data
loss prevention (DLP) alongside all of their applications and devices.
Workspace ONE Intelligence -- Delivering Smart and Actionable Insights
mobile workstyles create a massive challenge for IT trying to gain
insight into usage patterns of applications and devices for informed
decision-making. VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence is a new add-on
service to Workspace ONE that will deliver comprehensive insights and
automated actions to help accelerate planning, enhance security, and
improve end user experience. Insight into application deployments,
usage, device security, and end-user experience will help IT understand
the performance and security of their digital workspace environments. In
addition, a built-in rules engine will empower customers with automated
actions that enable real-time security and performance optimization
unavailable in legacy models.
Updates to Workspace ONE in addition to Horizon 7 with Cloud Foundation
and Dell EMC VDI Complete with Horizon Apps are expected to be generally
available in Q3 FY18.
General availability for Workspace ONE Intelligence is expected in Q4
