Earlier this year VMware and Okta announced a partnership to integrate each others products to unify the user context with the device context provided by Okta and VMware Workspace ONE. At VMworld 2018 in Barcelona I sat the session regarding the use of their products to drive a zero trust approach but to enable the users with passwordless experience.
The digital workspace keynote was one of my favourite sessions of VMworld 2018, Shawn Bass (VMware EUC CTO) and team demonstrated their modern management approach across heterogeneous devices as well as demonstrating the user focused experiences of mobile flow and the new Workspace ONE intelligent hub. Finally with Workspace ONE intelligence IT are able to be empowered with the intelligent information around the applications and devices to deliver amazing user focused support.
