VMware Workspace ONE Room for Improvement

I'd like to see expanded device support, particularly for IoT things like SCADA devices. That would be a huge benefit, especially as we automate more in production in the commercial sectors like manufacturing.

Its performance is quite good on Apple phones or even mid-range phones. If you install an AirWatch on a phone that is not too powerful, you will have performance issues. That's because the phone is not too powerful, and there is not enough memory, etc. They could do a lighter version for a less powerful phone. It would also be useful for very small companies that don't want to spend money on expensive phones. Having said that, I don't think that is their target market. If their target market is enterprise, all enterprises perhaps have an agreement with Google or Apple, and they would get a phone that has already been tested, and they know that AirWatch will work on that phone.

There are other solutions that might be better for certain use cases. This is not an all-purpose solution.

The solution needs to offer better training. We need to understand items such as third-party integration capabilities or new features before we start to work on a new implementation. Sometimes, this isn't clear and it can affect our work. The training that is available is quite expensive for us. They need to make it much more reasonable so that we can afford to be properly trained and informed.

Technical support needs to be more responsive to our requests. If something happens on a weekend, we won't get any help until at least the next business day.

VMware should develop an integrated platform for their security products to give a singular integrated and holistic view of the devices covered by different security products whether Workspace One or Carbon Black. Should also look at having a common end point agent to be deployed as an added advantage to customers who own both the products Workspace One as well as the recently acquired EDR - Carbon Black. 

Also, VMware should have a special support package for on premise setups so that the same value is realised by customers similar to cloud based deployment.

Our central authentication mechanism is not integrated with this solution, which we deployed three years ago. So far, our goal is to integrate it with our two directory servers, but we've run into a few challenges. We are not able to connect with support to help us resolve this integration issue.

I would like to see improvements made to both the support, and the pricing.

From an identity perspective, there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to integration with other solutions. I would say it needs more capabilities in terms of direct integrations, including cloud identity solution integrations.

Other areas of improvement are the synchronization functionality, as well as group management. I believe these areas could do with some polish. But beyond that, I wouldn't say anything else needs to be revamped.

I don't see any such areas where we are lacking. I was just doing the evaluation of other products to see if they have something else. However, this isn't missing anything, even when you look at the competition.

The pricing could always be better. It would be nicer if they were cheaper and more competitive.

Feature-wise, it is fine, but its pricing could be better, given that Microsoft is on a bundling spree. AirWatch would benefit from reducing the license pricing per user per month.

Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add-ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace.

Windows 10 management is there, but VMware only recently developed that part, and it's not fully mature. Patch management and other integrations are there as well as the application-pushing part, command line, mandatory commands, etc. Some out-of-the-box solutions should be available to better integrate a broader range of applications and handle application push. That's the roadmap we should look at.

The SaaS environment is not very responsive at times, so the performance can be improved in that regard.

The initial setup could be easier to do.

No areas for room for improvement come to mind. The VM is pretty good and I can't think of any areas that are lacking. I was just comparing VMware Workspace ONE to other solutions and I can say we are pretty happy with it for the moment. For the time being, I cannot think of any features that should be improved.

VMware Workspace ONE platform offers support for Mac Books and we see that there is some room for improvement in that area versus all the products out there.

The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved.

The cost of this product is a little high and should be reduced.

There are a lot of interfaces and components, which makes the setup a little bit complex.

If you have a lot of shared devices and want to have a mass deployment, then it is time-consuming to do. They have a feature where you can send out a code for enrollment under VMware, to obtain a user ID, but even with that, it has to be done one by one. You have to go inside and dig out the code, one at a time, and record it. It would be helpful if it generated a report so that you could use it to talk with the team. As it is now, it is not difficult but it could have been done better.

The location service could improve and more integration with other devices, such as Android enterprise and Apple devices.

We are having some issues with JavaScript or XML, and there is not any information provided for resolving it.

Technical Lead at a computer software company with 10,001+ employees

There are some bugs that our team needs to work around. It required some API integration required because visitor integration was not there. For example, we are currently working on a tunnel issue, and VMware doesn't have this solution. I think the R&D team is working on this, and I think this is something they need to look into because from the Android point of view, this is the major security tool, and these features need to work as expected.

Although it's supposed to be compatible with Chromebooks and Windows, we find that it's quite limited. I think it doesn't work properly with Chromebooks because you need a Google license to manage them. For this reason, we didn't end up using AirWatch with Chromebooks.

The overall accuracy could also be improved. It's not accurate enough when it comes to sending items to end-users.

They do have a good integration, but there is a long way to go as far as integration is concerned. They need to integrate with the cloud solutions a little bit more. We are looking for Azure integration.

There is no Apple zero-day support for updates.

The Apple developer option is not enabled in OEM, which makes it very difficult to manage the Mac devices proactively. 

They rely on a third-party tool for the packaging, which is why they are lagging.

I would like to see Apple and Mac devices have zero-day support. It needs to be activated.

The Macbook downloadable license needs to be integrated.

VMware is an expensive tool, and we are not using the complete platform. We are paying for a tool that we are not fully using. We need a specific tool that provides us with what we need.

We have decided to switch to another solution that we are currently evaluating and doing PoCs for because we work on iPads only. I prefer to work with Jamf Pro because it is more specific to working with the iPad features.

The main negative issue is the cost of licensing. In terms of additional features, it's hard to say because I know there are other options out there, add-ons and other things that are within workspace and available,but I haven't had time to investigate. We're not going to be supported after next year.

The initial setup should be simplified.

I would like to see further integration suites and user direct using IdPs such as Okta. I would also like proper integration in the field of endpoint security.

The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user. The app installer will notify you when an update is available, but it doesn't tell you what's going to be installed. So if you tell the user to update, they won't do it because if they look at the app installer, they're going to see that they have the latest version.

They also need a different UI for the app installer.

There could be improvements to Workspace ONE in terms of the pricing and some security aspects such as data loss prevention. It could be more competitive relative to other solutions on the market. For example, Microsoft EMS is very tightly integrated with Office 365 and that's a big advantage.
