VMware unveiled innovations that make VMware Workspace ONE powered by AirWatch a unified end user experience, management and security solution for all endpoint platforms.

Customers 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 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, SVP and GM, 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 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.

Workspace ONE 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 manages Chrome devices making it a 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.

Modern 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 are expected to be generally available in Q3 FY18.

General availability for Workspace ONE Intelligence is expected in Q4 FY18.
