VMware | June 06, 2022
VMware Inc., a leading business software pioneer, announced enhancements to its VMware Workplace ONE anytime workspace platform that will make it simpler for IT teams to manage and protect all employee devices.
Workspace ONE Mobile Threat Defense for superior mobile device security is one of the new features.
Improved update/patch management capabilities for Windows OS devices
Shankar Iyer, senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware said that “As the frequency and sophistication of threats continue to intensify, IT teams need a way to proactively detect threats across the entire device population and respond quickly. That is a tall order for taxed IT and Sec-Ops teams. VMware Workspace ONE is ideally suited for the new security realities of enabling a hybrid workforce. Leveraging intelligence and injecting automation in every step of the process, it simplifies IT operations, improves security against modern threats, and empowers the best employee experience across any device, anywhere.”
Best-in-Class Mobile Device Security
The mobile threat environment is broad nowadays, and mobile workstyles need specific security against phishing and application, device, and rogue network-based attacks. VMware Workspace ONE Mobile Threat Defense, a new add-on to the market-leading Workspace ONE UEM platform, raises the bar for mobile security. It includes mobile security technology from Lookout, a market leader.
Application-based risks, such as mobile malware, app vulnerabilities, and unsafe application behaviors and setups, are addressed by the solution.
Phishing using email, SMS, and messaging applications exposes web and content vulnerabilities. Malicious URLs, malicious online pages, videos, and images, as well as site and content behaviors and setups, are all included.
Device vulnerabilities and zero-day threats, including jailbreak and root access detection Device risk includes operating system version and update uptake.
Machine-in-the-middle attacks include dangerous activities such as SSL certificate stripping, forcing weaker algorithm negotiation, abnormal application network connection activity, and vulnerabilities linked with rogue Wi-Fi.
Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub can be used to enable application, device, and network security through Workspace ONE Mobile Threat Defense. This means that there are no separate applications or agents to download or install for IT, and essential information – such as alarms and proposed remedies – is communicated through a resource that workers utilize on a regular basis.
