As enterprises large and small shift their information to the cloud, an explosion of SaaS tools are making it easier than ever for employees to collaborate and innovate. Much of this sharing is being done across time zones and physical locations, by workers who are telecommuting, working in shared or public spaces, and from open networks. Information is stored on central, third-party servers that are accessible across the company and the world by anyone with an internet connection.
As a result, online security is increasingly being pushed to the forefront as a major corporate expense. Yet, 89% of the global information workforce lack clarity on how security applies to the cloud. “Data is suddenly everywhere, and so are the number of people, access points and administrators who can control – or worse, copy – the data."

Countless organizations are deploying digital workspace solutions to meet the demands of today’s mobile end users and the IT administrators that support them. The goal is to empower users to work from anywhere, on any device—mobile or laptop—at any time. However, architecting a secure, seamless, scalable digital workspace solution is not necessarily easy, which is where this paper helps.
When developing your digital workspace, it is important to keep five key considerations in mind, both on the front end and the back end of your environment:
Seamless, secure end-user access to applications and files
Easy-to-use enterprise app store
Fully integrated infrastructure stack
Agnostic platform with a broad ecosystem
Download this white paper to see how to approach these major considerations, with detailed strategies, and provide recommendations for effectively addressing each one.
As a cloud-based business services suite, Microsoft® Office 365™ provides organizations with access to web, mobile and desktop versions of traditional Office software tools, cloud storage space for enterprise file sharing, and hosted services for communication and social. By making these services available across desktop, mobile, and web platforms, Microsoft is experiencing increased adoption from both consumers and businesses while expanding the possibilities for anytime-anywhere collaboration.
Yet for all its promise, Office 365 poses a meaningful adoption and security challenges for the IT organization. This is where VMware Workspace™ ONE™ comes in — we’ve brought together the power of VMware AirWatch® and VMware Identity Manager™ to accelerate and secure Office 365 deployments.
The VMware 2016 State of the Digital Workspace Report was performed in July 2016 and is a study that examined digital workspace adoption among global organizations across industries. Data represents a survey of 1,263 business decision makers (BDMs) and IT influencers to examine the worldwide progress in transitioning from the client-server era to the mobile-cloud era.
Respondents acknowledged that game-changing IT relies on organizations adopting a digital workspace that includes security and identify management as vital components. With realistic prospects of achieving astounding return on investment (ROI), even businesses that cited obstacles to adoption may want to consider taking another look at business mobility initiatives.
In the world of the digital workspace, employees want to get access to apps and data, with one-touch single sign-on simplicity from any device, anywhere. This poses problems for organizations as they try to ensure security and control with contextual controls, such as device type, device posture, network location, and a host of other conditions.

Workspace™ ONE™ is VMware’s digital workspace solution, designed to give access to any application from any type of device under automated and granular policy control. VMware was one of the first adopters of Workspace ONE, deploying across its full user population in early-to mid 2016. This white paper describes the objectives that drove VMware’s decisions of how and when to deploy, plus an overview of the business results we’ve achieved so far.
The economy isn't standing still. For your business to succeed, your employees shouldn't either.
With your network infrastructure as a strong pair of legs, the right combination of a seamless user experience and a secure workspace will give users -- and your organization -- the ability to move forward with mobility.
This eBook relays the importance of unifying your infrastructure to deliver apps effectively across multiple devices. Learn how to stay on top of security and consistency with enterprise mobility management.
Not so many years ago, network closets, server rooms and data centers were designed from a “room to rack” standpoint. Deciding specifically where to store your technology typically came later in the design process. However, rapid technology refresh cycles, the need to rackmount more equipment and the desire for increased cooling capacities in an enclosed rack (known as an enclosure), have all begun to reverse that trend. Today, IT professionals are designing these critical workspaces with more of a “rack to room” methodology.
As virtualization technology evolves and improves, the server performance and power requirements for supporting a virtualized data center increase. Your aging servers are struggling to meet increasing virtual workload demands. These older, lower-performing servers further tax your data center by consuming valuable space and power. You want to update, upgrade, and consolidate to a powerful new server solution that will provide an excellent virtualization platform. In this white paper, you’ll learn how the NEC Express5800/A2040b enterprise server, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, offers just that.

Network Centric Operations (NCO) recognises the demand for pervasive decision-making in the modern battlespace. NCO provides the ability to leverage information networks to generate a more dynamic and agile decision-making space. An important dimension of this approach is the technological flexibility to quickly move the decision-making authority hierarchically or geographically as the situation demands. A fundamental enabler to this approach is the concept of a services orientated architecture (SOA). The use of industry-standard IT architectures provides the means of ensuring that systems can be provisioned rapidly, can be shared as appropriate, and can give the flexibility and response times required within such challenging environments.
The key issues involved in developing on-device network management systems for carrier-grade enterprise and operator networks are the same for any other networked resource, only with more complexity and built-in restrictions due to the limited space and processing capabilities inherent to these types of devices.
Does your workforce have a social media policy established? According to a study commissioned by Robert Half Technology, an IT staffing company, "Fifty-four percent of U.S. companies say they've banned workers from using social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and MySpace, while on the job."

The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN
(SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational
changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and
high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud
security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport.
The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were
start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN
use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies
offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial,
In this paper, we discuss why a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach to workforce mobility can be a compromise-free approach, and then how the combined capabilities of Samsung KNOX and Enterprise Mobility Management from AirWatch by VMware turn this compromise-free approach into reality.
