Last year, we announced same-day support for Google’s first version of Glass Enterprise Edition—EE13. Since then, VMware and Google has seen incredible developments with Glass in the workplace which is why we’ve been working closely with the Glass product team to ensure customers can securely manage Glass EE13 and 14, and now, EE15, with Workspace ONE unified endpoint management (UEM), powered by AirWatch technology.

In the newest Glass release, EE15, Google has made significant improvements for streamlined management, including the ability to configure new device settings (like time zone and camera restrictions) over-the-air, and scan a QR code for quick and easy bulk enrollment into Workspace ONE. In the below demo video, you can see how I use a QR code to easily enroll a pair of Glass into Workspace ONE in minutes!

Workspace ONE provides a simple yet robust solution to manage and support any device—from smartphones and laptops to rugged devices and wearables—from one central console. For Glass Enterprise Edition and other smart glasses, Workspace ONE enables IT to save time and resources with low-touch enrollment and over-the-air configuration, protect corporate data with device controls and policies, and give workers access to mission-critical apps.

Support for Google Glass Enterprise Edition EE15

Support for Glass EE15 is available today for glasses through a private beta. Organizations interested in joining should submit a request through My Workspace ONE. Support for EE15 will be generally available soon. Existing customers should check My Workspace ONE for updates.
