VMware, Google to boost Chromebook adoption
VMware Workspace ONE enables secure authentication and management of applications for enterprise Chrome OS users
VMware has expanded its partnership with Google to boost the adoption of Chromebooks.
Under the partnership, VMware Workspace ONE will enable secure authentication and management of applications - cloud, web and virtual - for organisations deploying Chromebooks.
With Workspace ONE, IT administrators benefit from additional security capabilities to help deploy, configure and secure, web and SaaS applications.
Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware, said: "VMware has been working with Google since 2015 to offer secure Android devices and applications, most recently with advanced support for Android Enterprise.
"This partnership shows our commitment to giving customers the flexibility to pick the device of their choice and enabling the delivery of any application on any device to end users."
Rajen Sheth, director of product management for Chrome OS at Google, added: "With Chrome OS we continue to see momentum in the enterprise given our efforts to deliver speed, security, simplicity and share ability to customers.
"From Windows to web to mobile apps, this partnership with VMware and the integration with VMware Workspace One will allow our customers to easily and securely deploy applications on Chrome OS devices."
Workspace ONE is a platform that unifies endpoint management for IT and delivers a unified access experience for end users to help organisations evolve away from silo-ed application and device management strategies to better embrace digital transformation.
