VMware Introduces New Remote Work Capabilities to Workspace ONE
VMware is introducing new remote work capabilities to the Workspace ONE platform, according to a press release on the company’s website. The vendor has announced new workplace solutions to help companies return their employees to offices safely as they keep combatting the effects of COVID-19. It also enables enhanced office experiences and business resilience by leveraging hybrid cloud scale and unique integrations with other VMware technologies.
VMware Workspace ONE allows you to simply and securely deliver and manage any app on any device. The solution integrates access control, application management and multi-platform endpoint management into a single platform and is available as a cloud service or on-premises deployment. VMware offers employees with a personalized experience and Day One access to applications.
The vendor’s new capabilities come in the form of two new privacy-centric mobile applications: VMware Workspace ONE Proximity and VMware Workspace ONE Campus. Workspace ONE Proximity uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons to give employees insight into potential exposure and changing conditions within an office. Workspace ONE Campus leverages the beacon infrastructure to support desk, meeting room booking, and wayfinding, further elevating the future workplace experience.
In the company’s press release, VMware’s Senior Vice President and General Manager, End-User Computing Shankar Iyer stated: “Remote work has essentially redrawn the lines where personal connections have improved, recruitment is easier, and companies can adapt faster. And technology has allowed us to adjust the way we work in a seamless way. Our announcements on solutions for the re-imagined workplace with Workspace ONE Proximity and Workspace ONE Campus, together with the launch of the first, truly modern platform for virtual desktops and apps are strategic and mission-critical to the distributed workforce. Strong adoption of our solutions validates our commitment to meet customers’ needs as they adapt to the new normal.”
