Continually, when I read public articles relating to VMware’s Workspace ONE solution, the highlights focus on identity management, application delivery and device Management. I agree, these are the core facets of the solution. Yet not much conversation is centered around the functionality of these topics in unison, providing a holistic security solution for any size enterprise.
In today’s world, there’s a growing concern of how to secure confidential information on all endpoints that have access to corporate resources. There are always drastic means of completing this task, but how can you balance that security against an efficient (and friendly) end-user experience? This is where Workspace ONE’s niche comes to life.
Traditional VPN vs. the Published Application Model
The traditional VPN solution, in production for most organizations, allows for full device connectivity to corporate resources. While extensive firewall rules and routing can limit some of this exposure, the attack vector may still be significant.
Workspace ONE’s published application model enables any device to receive specific entitlements by:
- What types of devices can access applications (Win10, Android, iOS, etc.)
- Which applications can be accessed (conditional access)
- When those applications can be accessed (geofencing)
- Where those applications can be accessed from (internal vs. external network)
- How those applications are launched (corporate LAN vs. VPN)
