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.”[1] 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.

Press Release: http://www.air-watch.com/company/news-room/press-releases/2016/10/vmware-outlines-the-future-of-the-digital-workspace-at-connect-2016/

There are 3 major announcements:

     1.       VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management

     2.       VMware Workspace ONE Mobile Productivity Enhancements

     3.       Safe Passage and Mobile Device Management (MDM) Migration Tools

1.     VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management – AirWatch UEM is available as a stand-alone product or as a part of Workspace ONE.

With AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) we are able to provide a holistic and user-centric approach to manage all endpoints in an organization – mobile, desktop and IoT – in a modern cloud approach with a single platform.

·       Traditional  desktops and laptops

·       Mobile devices of all form factors, operating systems (OS) and manufacturers

·       Rugged and critical operations line of business endpoints

·       Next-gen connected wearables and things

 

Rethink Legacy Desktop & Laptop Management

Here’s a recap of these powerful features and a look into two brand new Windows Management capabilities:

·       Configuration Management: Operating system (OS) configuration can be orchestrated whether the device is on the domain, network or in cloud.

·       Software Distribution: Package and deliver any app (modern or Win32) to end users on or off the network. Consolidate apps into a unified self-service application catalog with single sign-on (SSO) authentication.

·       Tech Preview of App Stack Packaging (Project A2): Reduce packaging complexities and provide a more reliable and less intrusive way to deliver Win32 apps out to physical devices.

·       OS Patch Management: Flexible management of OS updates and patches from the cloud eliminate the need for traditional WSUS infrastructure, helping organizations adopt Windows-as-a-Service.

·       Client Health and Security: Complementing Windows Information Protection policies available in Windows 10, IT administrators can enhance security, designate trusted applications, configure enterprise-protected boundaries and enforce flexible data moving and/or sharing policies.

·       Windows 10 Migration Assessment Tool: New SysTrack Desktop Assessment Service provides a comprehensive analysis of your end-user computing (EUC) environment. The assessment makes recommendations on an optimal approach for deploying and managing Windows 10 across physical and virtual endpoints. Click here to dive into the powerful features and get started for free at assessment.vmware.com.

 

Scale & Manage IoT, Augmented Reality & Mixed Virtual Experiences

Leveraging our core strengths around device management, we:

·       Partnered with leading smart glasses manufacturers and AR app developers, like Atheer, APX, Intel, ODG and VUZIX Corp, to build Android and Windows 10 wearable management and app delivery at scale.

·       Expanded the same unified endpoint management platform you already use to include wearable management. Now, you can manage smart glasses alongside your current mobile, tablet and laptop deployments. The updates will bring IT a simplified onboarding experience to easily set up devices with networks and applications.

·       Announced support for Windows 10 IoT and Surface Hub devices.

Read Bhavesh Kumar’s blog to delve into these exciting new capabilities.

 

2.     Workspace ONE Mobile Productivity Enhancements

New innovations enable real-time security across apps without sacrificing end-user experience:

·       OS Mobile Application Management (MAM): Enables organizations to expand their MAM container on the device to any application but without having to do traditional MDM management.

·       Continuous Access Policy: Instantly block access to in-use applications if devices fail compliance, such as leaving a beacon-enabled area.

·       Password Form Fill: IT can now extend the single sign-on (SSO) experience to non-standards based web apps. Admins teach Workspace ONE where usernames and passwords are in specific web-based apps, and the new Workspace ONE Browser extension injects those credentials as needed.

·       Internal app distribution: Through the Workspace ONE app catalog, admins can now distribute internally developed apps to unmanaged devices without uploading into public app stores.

·       Device compliance-based conditional access: For VMware Horizon apps and desktops, IT can now extend VMware’s leading access policy engine for virtual apps and desktops.

·       Self-service password reset: Employees and contractors can now reset their passwords directly within Workspace ONE with no IT involvement – saving valuable IT time and resources.

3.     Mobile Device Management Migration Tool & Safe Passage

As this industry evolution continues, many organizations are finding themselves with multiple point management solutions for mobile, desktop, apps and even IoT. To help customers transition to a comprehensive Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) platform, AirWatch is offering several migration services from traditional MDM players to VMware AirWatch. Additionally, VMware has expanded its Safe Passage program to help BlackBerry customers who must now migrate from Good for Enterprise with the recent end-of-life announcement and launched a MDM migration tool. These services will streamline the process from transitioning to VMware AirWatch with minimal end-user impact.

 

To learn more about the MDM migration tool, read this great blog from Jeff McGrath.
