Airwatch Connect Event Announcements Overview
ATLANTA – October 4, 2016 – Today at Connect 2016, VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, shared how businesses can embrace the future of mobility powered by its suite of End-User Computing solutions. The next-generation VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management™ and VMware Workspace™ ONE™ extends VMware AirWatch into cloud-based management for traditional desktops and new-age connected devices, while providing users with the apps and services they need to work digitally.
“Connect is a time to reflect on the mobility industry’s advancements in the last year, and also look into the future of how work can be reimagined,” said Noah Wasmer, senior vice president, mobile products, End-User Computing, VMware. “In the nearly 10 years since the launch of the iPhone, enterprise mobility management has transformed from simple wipe and lock commands to a unified endpoint management platform for all devices, including Windows 10 and the Internet of Things. No longer will IT run different systems for different devices; instead we built the single platform to manage all endpoints. With scalability, security, productivity and privacy at the core, VMware is uniquely positioned to deliver on this new digital work experience.”
Rethinking Legacy Desktop and Laptop Management
Industry analyst firm Gartner reports “the future of endpoint management lies in consolidation of management tools that manage traditional PCs and mobile devices as a common management framework evolves across the two.” To address the industry shift from separate client management, EMM, cloud and on premise tools, VMware is bringing the two together with VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management. VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management provides a holistic and user-centric approach to managing all endpoints in an organization – from mobile and desktop to IoT.
VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management, available as a standalone solution or as a part of VMware Workspace ONE, extends the VMware AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management™ capabilities into advanced cloud-based Windows 10 PC lifecycle management. This includes configuration management, operating system (OS) patch management, client health and security management. VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management enables IT to deploy security patches and OS updates faster, install software more reliably and consolidate operational processes across all devices – on or off the domain. This extends the robust mobile device management technologies for Windows management already available in AirWatch to deliver the industry’s first comprehensive UEM solution that brings together desktop and mobile management under a single modern platform.
Collectively, VMware provides a comprehensive solution to help organizations migrate to Windows 10 by assessing their environment, determining the optimal path to migrate to Windows 10 (both physically and virtually) and take advantage of a modern approach for securing and managing all devices on or off the network.
