VMware and Google Expand Partnership to Accelerate the Adoption of Chromebooks

by May 12, 2017 0 comments

VMware announced an expanded partnership with Google to accelerate the adoption of Chromebooks. Enhancing existing application accessibility of the devices, VMware Workspace ONE will enable one-click secure authentication and management of applications – cloud, web and virtual – for organizations deploying Chromebooks. Workspace ONE is a platform that unifies endpoint management for IT and delivers a unified access experience for end users to help organizations evolve away from silo-ed application and device management strategies to better embrace digital transformation.

Chrome OS provides multiple layers of protection including security modules, like TPM chips specialized for encryption, verified boot to check for compromises, sandboxing for containing threats and full disk encryption for data protection. Together with Workspace ONE on Chromebooks, IT administrators benefit from additional security capabilities to help deploy, configure and secure, web and SaaS applications. We are also collaborating on advancements to unify native Android applications. Windows applications can also be delivered through VMware Horizon 7 and VMware Horizon Cloud virtual applications and desktops, that can be quickly accessed through dynamic contextual decision-making, secured in the data center and provisioned through Workspace ONE. And end users will enjoy simple single sign-on (SSO) to a digital workspace that includes a catalogue of all the business and productivity applications they need, while IT benefits from improved data security and centralized management and delivery of applications.

Workspace ONE with VMware AirWatch and Horizon support for Chromebook is available immediately.
