The most valuable feature of VMware Workspace ONE is it provides the ability to find out the location of devices and manage end-point solutions when they are deployed, and keep them secure.

The most valuable feature of VMware Workspace ONE is the support for multiple devices. Not only iOS, and Android, but all kinds of platforms, including VR device management. Additionally, it has a tunneling feature, which no other solution provides. Other solutions have to integrate with other tools to have this functionality, whereas VMware Workspace ONE has its own application gateway tunnel.

Its UI is extremely easy to use whether you're an advanced user or a novice user. When I first opened it up and had to learn the product, I was easily a novice. By the end of the third month, I was digging into the backend of the system and using it as a highly advanced user to accomplish what I needed to accomplish, and I was able to do it through the UI mostly.

The most valuable features of VMware Workspace ONE are security and having support for all the latest features that are coming out from Apple. They're pretty fast at adopting new features. This is one of the most vital aspects of mobile device management systems.

The feature with the highest rating for me is its employee management. I can also praise how versatile it is in terms of operating systems. It has good support for multiple operating systems and can easily manage them all. Not just that, but it can also support any kind of tool that can be run on all these operating systems.

We used to have a system before, Mac OS Open Directory server and this open directory became obsolete because Apple decided to stop the enterprise market, so there was no other alternative for us to use. We chose this to replace the open directory and we found that it has many more features than the previous solution. We totally rely on it right now to manage all the devices on campus.

It's all about securing data with the help of the email client called VMware Boxer. It enables the end-user to carry data in their mobile devices but there is containerization between the personal data and the organization's data. It helps enhance their security while still carrying their own BYOD.

For me, the integration of AirWatch with various enterprise components is something I like. The way they are partnering with various services, like security services, or some of the big guys like Google, Android, Apple, and including Microsoft; that's really awesome. And the way they look at providing functionality to create self-service and automation, that's really usefully and beneficial. That's where I see they differentiate themselves.

Hi community,  I work at a computer and network security company. I am currently debating if to migrate from WS1 to Intune. Is it worth migrating from WS1 to Intune if we have Microsoft 365 E3 available?  What are the pros and cons of each solution? Which solution is easier to manage? Thank you for your help.

First of all, what is WS1? I think you should have Intune now as part of your E3 subscription (not sure of it, so please check your billing menu). Intune gives you a lot of flexibility to set rules to deploy to systems.

If you are only using Windows, it will be a great decision. However, if you are using Mac and Linux you will still need WS1 /JAMF or any other MDM solutions. Intune has extensive capacities on Windows but limited capabilities on MAC.  My suggestion will be  MAC - WS1/JAMF  Windows : Intune Compliance check: Intune for the entire fleet. This will allow you to leverage the conditional access capabilities of Azure AD.

VMware Workspace One has a powerful set of helpful features. The solution offers very good documentation, the initial setup is easy, and the product is very stable and reliable. I think the fact that VMware Workspace One provides a simplified administration is a huge advantage for businesses and adds tremendous value. It also takes pressure off of employees and frees up their time for other work priorities, which is a huge benefit. I happen to like the Kiosk Mode feature, which restricts employees or clients to using only the VMware Workspace One application for interactions. By offering only one application, you gain an extra layer of security control. In regards to scalability, I believe it is suitable for both small and large sized companies. Overall, I am impressed with VMware Workspace One, though I do wish they would offer extended device support, especially for IOT things such as SCADA devices. VMware Horizon 7 isn’t as fully mature as VMware Workspace One. It’s comparable in terms of setup and scalability, making it easy to expand to more endpoints. However, it is more pricey and it really shouldn’t be. In contrast to VMware Workspace One, I actually feel that it is lacking in documentation for app settings. Nevertheless, the product seems to work well when it comes to desktop management, specifically when it comes to all the upgrades. It would also be helpful if they had an additional feature like automatic replication of all the stored profiles to avoid having to use third-party tools. Conclusion: Compared to VMware Horizon 7, VMware Workspace One is a solid choice because it doesn’t have bugs or glitches, it does not crash or freeze, it is secure, easy to use, it is centrally managed, and performs well. All of these details make a huge difference to me, and for me VMware Workspace One is a clear winner.
