VMware expands Workspace ONE capabilities


VMware announced advancements to its Workspace ONE.  Newly added capabilities are  latest update of AirWatch 8.4 and Identity Manager.

The Silicon Valley company said these new additions  will deliver a new identity-defined managed workspace.

VMware said the new Workspace ONE adaptive management technology is designed to remove limitations of stand-alone mobile application management (MAM) and identity-as-a-service (IDaaS).

These advancements will protect data inside applications without requiring device management to accelerate support for BYOD initiatives.

“VMware was the first in the industry to bring together identity, device management and application delivery on a single integrated platform to support business mobility initiatives for companies transitioning their legacy infrastructure to compete in the mobile-cloud era,” said Dave Grant, vice president, product marketing, desktop products, End-User Computing, VMware.

“Adopting new SaaS and mobile applications is critical for business transformation but can introduce significant risk. The new capabilities in VMware Workspace ONE can help improve company-wide security and take control of managed or unmanaged devices.”

The Workspace ONE is expected to be generally available this quarter. The solution will be offered in standard, advanced and enterprise editions with prices starting at $8 per user per month for cloud subscriptions and $150 per user for on-premises perpetual licenses.

AirWatch 8.4 is expected to be generally available this quarter. AirWatch management bundles are offered in multiple editions with both cloud subscriptions and on-premises perpetual licensing.
