In looking back, this year has been an interesting one for mobility. Given the amount of time the concept of data security has spent in the news cycle (Equifax breach, anyone?), it’s starting to become top of mind for a growing number of organizations. And I’m not just referring to big business. Recent research has underscored the importance of mobile security in small businesses, and opened discussions about this IT priority for some who had never previously considered themselves a target for cyber criminals. Meanwhile, leading solutions providers like VMware continue to innovate and find new ways to meet such business demands.

This past week, my team and I attended and presented at the Enterprise Mobility Exchange in San Diego. The Exchange provides attendees with an excellent platform to learn, benchmark and network among senior business executives and technical leaders from across the country. We had the opportunity to speak with companies including UPS, Adidas, Petco, Koch Industries, DuPont and VISA, among others. Despite the diverse range of industry sectors these companies represent, we found one common problem among them — and it’s the same one companies with whom we work closely are experiencing. Each of these organizations is looking for a better way to deliver information and manage data access in an enterprise-secure fashion while providing a consumer-simple approach.

As companies work to address this challenge, they must balance these priorities with the potential burdens placed on IT to execute such initiatives. Meanwhile, the proliferation of device types that must be managed and security threats that must be navigated only compound the problem. That’s where the true benefit of VMware’s Workspace One really hits a homerun.

With the advancement of the Workspace One platform, companies are able to grant specific access, via Single Sign-On (SSO), to any iOS, Android, Mac, Windows 10 or Google Chromebook device. This not only provides central control to IT administration but a significant reduction in IT hours and increased ROI. At the same time, employees benefit from working on devices with which they feel comfortable, thereby increasing productivity and worker satisfaction.
