The modern workforce relies on fundamental business apps like Salesforce to get work done. Whether you use Salesforce to service customers, close deals, analyze data and nurture leads, or you rely on apps within the Salesforce App Exchange, Salesforce is a vital component across many teams within an organization.
The rise of mobile apps in the workplace allows employees to access pertinent information and complete tasks from any device—work or personal. While this level of access maximizes user productivity on the go, the risk of security threats and data loss greatly increases. For instance, a lost or stolen device, malicious app or unsecure browser can access an unsecured Salesforce application. Once compromised, sensitive company data could be accessed by an authorized party. As IT tightens security around apps and business data, users often perform initial account set up, create and try to remember complex passwords, enter domains and more, greatly reducing the adoption rate of IT investments. How can IT simplify user access of business apps and data, while maintaining the highest level of security to prevent data loss?Continue reading →
The state of cybersecurity is scary. Businesses have watched security breaches expose more than 851 million records in the last decade, and nearly 6.2 million records have been compromised since 2016 thanks to increasingly sophisticated attack methods. Even scarier, hackers appear to be getting even faster and better at accessing your corporate data.
Meanwhile, companies are expecting a slew of new devices [thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT) and augmented reality] to enter the workplace in the next several years. In fact, CIO.com just listed rising mobile and IoT points of entry among their top security predictions for 2017.

It’s been a little over year since Microsoft released the Windows 10 operating system (OS). Since then, customers have started to look at how to migrate and support Windows 10. In fact, in a recent survey we conducted, 64% of customers say Windows 10 migration is the top priority among their end-user computing (EUC) projects.
Within two years, our survey indicates that customers expect to migrate and support Windows 10 in 75% of their install base. It’s clear that Windows 10 is already being embraced by organizations today, and even more organizations are certainly thinking about it.
As far as retail IT is concerned, 2016 is over. It’s time to start planning for 2017, and there is no better place to start than Retail’s Big Show on Jan. 15-17 in New York City.
Whether you are responsible for a single up-and-coming brand or a portfolio of traditional companies, mobility has the power to move you closer to your customers and employees.

When the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) was planning their new state-of-the-art 911 dispatch center, management knew it needed a next-generation end-user computing (EUC) system. As the fourth largest county in the United States with responsibility for 4 million citizens living in over 9,200 square miles in Arizona, MCSO had been struggling for years with its legacy EUC infrastructure.
In the spirit of giving thanks, VMware End-User Computing (EUC) wishes to recognize six dedicated EUC Champions for their impressive contributions in 2016. Thank you to these six people for their tremendous support and hard work. They helped us get the word out about our numerous product enhancements and new features, plus a lot more.
With the introduction of Windows 10, Microsoft’s new philosophy is for each user to manage his or her own desktop and that every user has his or her own dedicated physical device. All data and settings in Windows 10 are tied to the local device.
This also means that Microsoft does not provide ways of managing and roaming many of Windows 10 settings, such as the Start Menu and File Type Associations.
