Currently, the product is priced at around 50 USD. However, in India, there is a similar product available for around 25 USD.

I can't speak to the exact pricing and licensing. It's pretty reasonable in terms of the cost.

There was a commercial team that dealt with that. My guess is that its licensing was yearly. There was probably no fee in addition to the standard licensing fee.

It is not an expensive solution. The pricing is good. It's also less expensive than InTune. I'd rate their pricing five out of five.

It's a subscription from VMware. We have a hybrid setup with a physical gateway on site, however, beyond that, it's subscription-based. We are paying about $145,000 a year on a three-year subscription with no ability to scale up or scale down within that class model. I was not here when the initial purchase was made, so I don't have that comparative analysis from three years ago. It does not strike me as particularly expensive, however, given that Intune is now included with my E3 subscription, it's on the expensive side now. Typically, the solution comes as part of a package deal.

The solution can be costly when the customer is dealing with multiple platforms. If a customer is only dealing with iOS, Windows, and Android then Intune is the better choice because there are free licenses.

VMware Workspace ONE licensing price is good with their supportability. The price of VMware Workspace ONE is reasonable. We are using an enterprise license.

It's definitely a bit on the expensive side. It is more for smaller organizations and not large, massive enterprises. I am not sure about any additional costs. As far as we could tell, the billing was what the billing was.

It's a costly solution. While it is not inexpensive in terms of price, it is definitely worth it. In terms of pricing and the functionality we get with the MDM, I believe it is more than adequate. We have a three-year subscription.

For most of the projects, we use the standard license but for complex ones, we use the older type of processes, integrations, and licenses inside the solution.

For the moment, we have a multi-year contract, meaning that we cannot go with a different solution at this time even if the price should prove more favorable. Only next year can we evaluate the price.

Pricing is an area that could be improved. They are much better than Microsoft but it is difficult to compete against them. Microsoft has everything embedded and VMware is a different product.

I don't handle licensing or billing. Therefore, I'm not sure what the total cost is to our organization. I don't know if it's overly expensive or fairly reasonable. I'm purely a technical team member.

If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is.

There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified.

If you purchase it for one year, it is very expensive. If you get it for three years or up to five years, then you can bargain a better price.

The pricing of the product needs advisement. It would be great to bundle the VM products together. The actual box itself should be included in the license. At present, it is not paired with the mobile device. Furthermore, the Licensing Structure of the VMware products is expensive if purchased separately.

In terms of pricing, this solution is definitely much more expensive compared to other solutions, like MobileIron or MaaS360 or any other product in the market. This solution is more expensive by 30 or 40 percent. That is very hard because, while enterprise companies can afford for this pricing, if you look at the SMB sector, they can't afford this pricing, and they won't adopt this kind of technology.

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.
