VMware boosts Workspace ONE features with greater security and automation
VMware has added new features around its Workspace ONE platform to include data-driven intelligence and predictive security.
The new features include Workspace ONE Intelligence, a cloud-based service which integrates with the main platform to aggregate users, apps, networks and endpoint data, as well as the Workspace ONE Trust Network, which combines the security of the primary platform with best practices from featured partners. The seven companies combining with VMware on this are Carbon Black, CrowdStrike, Cylance, Lookout, McAfee, Netskope, and Symantec.
Digging deeper into the Intelligence tool shows an increasing prevalence towards automation in IT administration. The product offers what VMware calls a ‘decision engine’, which enables IT to create rules automating and optimising tasks such as remediating vulnerable endpoints and setting conditional access controls. Also featured are ‘integrated insights’, which collates ‘actionable information and recommendations for the entire digital workspace across all endpoints, apps, networks and user experience into one comprehensive view.’
“Empowered employees are at the heart of digital transformation. However, providing employees with the tools they need to improve productivity introduces operational complexity and increased cyber threats as apps, devices and networks proliferate and the security perimeter dissolves,” said Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager of end user computing at VMware.
“Our new intelligence-driven digital workspace platform and partner ecosystem help customers leverage the power of insights, automation and predictive security to simplify operations and detect and remediate threats while delivering the best user experience.”
VMware’s leadership in the field continues to rise. Earlier this month, The Radicati Group placed the company as a leader in its annual unified endpoint management (UEM) quadrant for the seventh consecutive year. In December, Forrester again cited VMware as top of the tree citing the rise of UEM as an extension of enterprise mobility management (EMM).
