Announcements Employee Experience Featured VMware Workspace ONE Workspace Security

Announcing VMware Anywhere Workspace, a unique solution to manage multi-modal employee experience, better secure the distributed edge, and automate the workspace

Today, we are excited to announce VMware Anywhere Workspace, a solution that enables distributed organizations to truly embrace work from anywhere.

VMware Anywhere Workspace brings together the innovative technologies of VMware Workspace ONE, VMware SASE, and VMware Carbon Black Cloud, empowering anywhere organizations to manage multi-modal employee experience, better secure the distributed edge, and automate the workspace.

Distributed work requires a modern, integrated approach

Clearly, the nature of work has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and businesses have permanently embraced the new way of a distributed workforce and flexible work options. The perimeter-based security model – already strained for years by mobility and the cloud – is no longer adequate.

Organizations are facing many challenges, such as ensuring good connectivity for remote employees, monitoring and securing their enlarged attack surface, supporting BYOD, managing remote PCs, and providing a seamless remote working experience. When not addressed properly, these issues all have a negative effect on productivity and security and could prevent a team from doing its job.

Addressing the challenges of a distributed workforce requires a modern, integrated approach.

VMware Anywhere Workspace builds trust for the distributed workforce

VMware has the unique ability to bring together the technologies needed to address the needs of anywhere organizations.

  • VMware Workspace ONE provides unified endpoint management, desktop and app virtualization, and a variety of employee experience, productivity, and security related solutions.
  • VMware Carbon Black Cloud brings cloud-native endpoint and workload protection.
  • VMware SASE combines SD-WAN capabilities with cloud-delivered security functions, including cloud web security, zero trust network access, and firewalling. These capabilities are delivered as-a-service from a global network of points of presence (PoPs).

Manage multi-modal employee experience

With this combined solution, an organization can manage employee experience across devices and locations. Workspace ONE Intelligence Digital Employee Experience Management can help any employer proactively monitor and manage device and application experiences. VMware SD-WAN can help companies provide quality of service for cloud, SaaS, and on-prem apps all the way to users’ homes, an issue that has been especially pressing since so many more workers went from working in an office space to the home office in 2020. VMware Horizon can help deliver a familiar desktop and application experience across workplace locations and devices. And Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub can provide great experiences throughout the entire employee lifecycle, including smooth remote onboarding workflows that help keep employees engaged and supported from the start.

Better secure the distributed edge

Today, more businesses have realized the need for a Zero Trust approach to security. VMware Workspace ONE provides the connected control points essential for this approach, with Carbon Black Cloud providing extensive visibility into threats. VMware Horizon delivers access to desktops and applications on any endpoint. And VMware SASE builds on our SD-WAN capabilities with further security services delivered from a global network of cloud-based points of presence (PoPs.) These services include Zero Trust network access, firewalling, and cloud-based web security. You can learn more about VMware SASE from today’s blog post on VMware SASE and VMware Anywhere Workspace.

Automate the workspace

All of these modern approaches must be empowered with analytics and automation. Workspace ONE Intelligence provides this to the workspace, along with modern capabilities like policy baselines and CVE feed integration. Workspace ONE Freestyle Orchestrator will bring a modern workflow experience, with a no-code policy builder, to IT. And VMware Edge Network Intelligence provides actionable insights and proactive remediation to connectivity issues. Read more about Workspace ONE Intelligence and Freestyle Orchestrator in today’s blog.

Anywhere Workspace integrations

While these solutions are innovative on their own, even more value comes with our unique ability to integrate them. For example, Workspace Security brings Carbon Black together with Workspace ONE UEM and VMware Horizon. This provides endpoint management teams with more visibility into threats, and security teams with more remediation options. Security must be a team effort, and we are driving to enable collaboration and operational excellence. And with VMware Secure Access, we have brought together Workspace ONE Tunnel with VMware SD-WAN, enabling better security and connectivity for work from anywhere on any device. We have more unique integrations planned over time. Read about the latest updates to Carbon Black integration with VMware Horizon in today’s blog, How VMware Anywhere Workspace helps secure the distributed edge.

Again, the industry has recognized the leadership of VMware Workspace ONE, VMware Carbon Black, and VMware SASE, and we are proud to help customers with these solutions today. Now, we are excited to strive towards the future and continue to build the most comprehensive and modern solution for enabling work from anywhere with future innovations and integrations — where business continuity for any company and organization is always top of mind.
