VMware & Google Expand Partnership To Enable Enterprise-Wide Management of Chrome Devices

VMware has announced it will become the first unified endpoint management (UEM) provider with full Chrome device management capabilities. VMware Workspace ONE, a digital workspace platform powered by VMware AirWatch UEM technology, will enable customers to unify management of Chrome devices alongside all other endpoints from a single console.

Customers will be able to manage Chrome devices alongside all other endpoints in Workspace ONE due to the functionality of VMware’s UEM technology, AirWatch. Starting from out-of-the box on-boarding, configuration and policies, provisioning apps, auditing and tracking; all the way to end device wipe, IT can secure and enable Chrome devices using a simplified approach. With new enterprise-ready capabilities from Chrome Enterprise License, organizations will be able to deliver device policies using customizable assignment of groups based on geography, device platform, department, role, and more, simplifying policy enforcement across an enterprise.

Building on previously released integrations of Workspace ONE with Chrome OS, IT also will be able to provide employees with access to all enterprise applications – cloud, web, native Android, virtual Windows – from a single app catalogue to deliver a consistent experience to employees anywhere, anytime, on any device. Chrome device users will even be able to access full Windows desktops and applications and use these devices as next-generation thin clients, helping to accelerate the adoption of Chrome devices in the enterprise. Workspace ONE will be able to deliver a unified platform to both manage and deliver any app to Chrome devices.

Management of Chrome devices with Workspace ONE will be available in September 2017.
