​New VMware platform aims to unify struggling digital enterprises

“Digital enterprises are struggling to deliver a unified digital workspace due to disjointed technology and teams.”

VMware has unveiled a new platform for delivering secure digital workspaces for flexible work styles and bring your own device (BYOD), branded as VMware Workspace ONE.

Using the principles of consumer simple and enterprise secure, the digital workspace aims to address the end user and enterprise IT business mobility needs by aggregating all devices, applications and services while securely managing them through unified common access and identity.

“In the mobile cloud era, employees, devices, applications and data increasingly live beyond the physical walls of the workplace, the data centre, or the network,” says Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware.

“Digital enterprises are struggling to deliver a unified digital workspace due to disjointed technology and teams.

“We are proud to be the first to bring together identity, device management and application delivery on a single integrated platform so business can be conducted by mobile end-users regardless of platform, location, device or application.”

Poonen says a digital workspace can give IT a more simplified way of managing users, devices and applications.

“It can provide end users with a consumer simple way to seamlessly access all business resources regardless of device type,” Poonen adds.

“It also provides line of business, a secure and powerful platform on which to build and rebuild business processes that enable a more effective mobile workforce to compete in the market.”

Poonen says VMware Workspace ONE is designed to deliver a digital workspace that integrates device management, application delivery and identity management technologies.

“These combined benefits, on a single mobile platform, will enable secure management and delivery of business critical resources to employees for corporate IT, and consumer simple access for end-users,” Poonen adds.

“This solution will deliver options for all types of users from those with BYOD to corporate fully-managed devices.”

Expected to be generally available this quarter, Poonen says key capabilities of the solution includes self-service access to cloud, mobile and windows applications, alongside improved data security and real-time app delivery and automation.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
