About VMware Anywhere Workspace and Workspace ONE
VMware Anywhere Workspace is an integrated platform that enables employees to work from anywhere with more secure and frictionless experiences. It brings together all the necessary solutions into a single experience for IT and employees, including Unified End-point Management with Workspace ONE UEM, desktop as a service (DaaS) with Horizon, Digital Employee Experience (DEX), and Workspace Security.
Workspace ONE UEM provides a comprehensive solution that enables companies to manage and better secure any device across all platforms. This UEM platform gives IT teams control over the highly diversified device deployments found in so many organizations today, while ensuring enterprise security at every level. Standout features include:
- Manage Every Endpoint on Every Platform: Manage and secure all devices (mobile, desktop, special-purpose, etc.) and apps (native, SaaS, virtual, etc.) at scale with a single powerful solution by taking advantage of modern, cloud-native efficiencies.
- Intelligence to Enlighten and Automate: IT teams get real-time visibility into the entire technology environment with Workspace ONE Intelligence, enabling informed, data-driven decisions. Proactive analytics help IT with faster resolution of issues that can negatively impact the overall digital employee experience (DEX) and security. Using the no-/low-code automation framework of Workspace ONE Freestyle Orchestrator, admins can automate routine and complex processes to minimize manual tasks for the IT team.
- Consistent Employee Experience: Employees work effectively on the go by providing a self-service unified app catalog that is consistent in look, feel, and function across all devices and platforms. The self-service digital workspace provides secure, single sign-on (SSO) access to all apps, actionable notifications, corporate communications, and support resources – all at one touch. Built-in per-app tunneling secures sessions even with apps behind a firewall.
- Automated Out-of-the-Box Device Onboarding: New devices register over the air during initial power-up with customizable configuration tools like Windows Drop Ship Provisioning, automated device enrollment with Apple Business Manager, zero-touch enrollment of rugged devices, and more. Admins can easily set up and customize the imageless configuration of work profiles such as email, VPN, Wi-Fi, apps, content, intranet sites, and other back-end resources. This gives employees immediate access to email, apps, and data within minutes of device startup, all of which ensures immediate user productivity and a positive employee experience no matter where the user is located.
