Unlocking Mobile Moments with VMware Workspace ONE Productivity Apps

Do you wonder how often you pull your smartphone out of your pocket (or purse)? Do you feel &#rsquo;separation anxiety&#rdquo; (and I use that term loosely here) if the smartphone is not within arm&#rsquo;s length, especially if you&#rsquo;re not wearing your smartwatch?

If you answered yes to those questions, I don&#rsquo;t believe you are alone. An Internet Trends report famously suggests that an average user pulls out their smartphone 150 timesa day, and each mobile micro-moment lasts between 60 and 90 seconds.Other research estimates the heaviest users touch—tap, type, swipe, click—their smartphones 2,617 times a day, on average.

This paradigm shift requires us to design apps for what we call &#rsquo;mobile moments.&#rdquo; In essence, developers must understand what a user is trying to accomplish during a mobile moment based on considerations—device form factor, information context, aggregated intelligence from multiple business systems and, increasingly, machine learning—to provide the most delightful user experience possible.

VMware Workspace ONE is a digital transformation platform, and we&#rsquo;d like to show you how our suite of mobile productivity apps use the mobile moments design paradigm to deliver consumer-simple, enterprise-secure experiences.

5 Common Mobile Moments in the Enterprise

Rather than focusing on my experiences like in previous blog posts, I asked Adam Chow for his top mobile moments during his summer internship here at VMware. He graciously summarized these moments and recorded videos to showcase them.

1. Joining conference calls.

In our everyday life, we often dial into conference calls on the go. VMware Boxer is a secure email, calendar and contacts app that allows users to dial in with literally two taps. Yes, you heard me right. No more fiddling with finding the right number and the associated passcode. I know it sounds too good to be true, so don&#rsquo;t take my word for it, check it out for yourself.

2. Scheduling meetings.

Oftentimes, we wait to get back to our desk to respond to one-line emails like, &#rsquo;Do you have time for a quick chat?&#rdquo; See how easily you can send your availability and quickly create meetings with co-workers and external business partners using the Boxer app. It is simply amazing.

3. Triaging emails.

A lot of industry research has been done on categorizing email users as pilers, filers and purgers. Pilers are users (like myself) who keep all their emails in the inbox so unread emails are actionable. Filers are users who meticulously aim for a zero inbox and file important emails into folders. Purgers are users who delete emails that are no longer actionable and expect others to send another email if there is a follow-up.

In an enterprise setting, a lot of mobile moments are spent triaging emails. The Boxer app provides features like:

  • Custom swipe gestures so users can personalize how they triage their emails and take quick actions,

  • Bulk triage emails by deleting or moving all at once,

  • Propose new meeting times and

  • Customize quick reply templates and send quick replies to one or more emails.

4. Accessing intranet sites.

A lot of customers roll out Boxer, VMware Browser and VMware Content Locker apps in a mobile app management (MAM) mode. The encryption, data loss prevention, integrated authentication, shared passcode and compliance are built into the app itself without requiring a mobile device management (MDM) profile on the device.

In these environments, users do not have an operating system level per-app VPN tunnel, so the Workspace ONE platform provides a secure tunnel to resources behind the firewall, like intranet sites. This means that when users click an intranet link within an email, they do not get the &#rsquo;404: Page Not Found&#rdquo; error. Instead the site opens seamlessly, and the user can complete their workflow within the mobile moment.

5. Collaborating on enterprise files.

The Content Locker mobile app can aggregate files and folders from over 30 enterprise content repositories. IT can set data loss prevention (DLP) controls in one place and users can securely access, sync and share all their content.

Content Locker supports on-premises repositories, such as Microsoft SharePoint and file shares, as well as cloud repositories, such as Microsoft OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, Dropbox and Box. Watch how a team of people interviewing a candidate were able to quickly collaborate during this mobile moment.

These videos offer a quick teaser of how VMware&#rsquo;s suite of mobile productivity apps cater to mobile moments. Stay tuned for exciting innovations that will take this much further.

Security Update: 8 Advances in End-User Computing from VMware

Employees across enterprise organizations in today&#rsquo;s mobile-cloud world expect simple user experiences to help them be productive. IT often runs into challenges supporting these expectations while keeping their environments secure.

Our team has focused on empowering organizations with an enterprise-secure approach and consumer-simple experience through a digital workspace. Employees can securely access any app, on any device in their own digital workspace provided by VMware Workspace ONE, powered by VMware AirWatch unified endpoint management technology.

Over the course of 2017, we&#rsquo;ve introduced many security capabilities across the Workspace ONE platform, which includes advancements in VMware Horizon 7 and VMware Horizon Cloud. Let&#rsquo;s take a closer look at those security capabilities, as well as existing security integrations and security features that elevate Workspace ONE to the digital workspace platform that organizations can trust.

1. Derived Credentials

Earlier this year, we announced our derived credentials solution as part of Workspace ONE. This was huge news for organizations mandated by certain directives, such as FIPS 201, that require use of smart cards, personal identification verification (PIV) or common access cards (CAC) for access to physical, logical and network resources.

Smart cards, PIV and CAC worked great on desktops and laptops, but the experience on mobile devices was poor and costly because special hardware was needed to read the cards. To help with this issue, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) updated FIPS 201 in 2013 and the following year released SP 800-157, with guidelines on how to generate and utilize alternative tokens, which they refer to as a derived PIV credentials, also commonly referred to as derived credentials or PIV-D. This helped provide better experience, implementation and deployment on mobile devices accessing physical, logical and network resources.

We released our derived credentials app, called VMware PIV-D Manager, that enables the use of derived credentials with native apps and profiles, VMware apps and third-party AirWatch SDK-enabled apps. PIV-D Manager even integrates with other derived credentials solution providers such as Entrust and Intercede.

2. Boxer S/MIME

VMware Boxer, one of our Workspace ONE productivity apps, is an integrated mobile email, calendar and contacts app that helps increase productivity by giving end users a great user experience. Security was a big focus on our Boxer app this year.

We started by enabling S/MIME support for sending and receiving signed and/or encrypted mail. S/MIME is a standard for public key encryption and signing of MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) data that allows for secure email exchange. Organizations have the option of signing an email for authenticity and/or encrypting email messages for an added layer of security.

3. Boxer Classification Markings

In various regulated industries, such as public sector, healthcare and financial, sensitive emails often need to be specifically marked or classified when they are sent and received. When it comes to email, messages typically get a classification appended in the subject line, top or bottom of the body, etc. For example, an email message should be marked &#rsquo;unclassified&#rdquo; or &#rsquo;secret&#rdquo; depending on the content of the email.

Earlier this year, we announced support for classification markings in the Boxer app, which integrates with the built-in Microsoft Exchange transport rules. This capability also integrates with TITUS, Boldon James and janusNET.

4. Boxer Information Rights Management

In addition to S/MIME and classification marking support, we added full support for information rights management (IRM). IRM is a form of data loss prevention (DLP), which can specify access permissions to email messages, including the ability to restrict copy-paste, restrict email forwarding, enforce email message content expiration and more. As you can tell, we put a lot of emphasis on email security through our Boxer app!

5. AirWatch & NSX Integration

AirWatch and NSX integration was introduced over a year ago, and the amount of customer interest in it hasn&#rsquo;t slowed down since. When apps on mobile devices have access to communicate to any resource in the data center, this represents a challenge for IT as the attack surface within the data center can be large.

The AirWatch and NSX integration aims to solve this problem by limiting each mobile app to only communicate to the server that it needs to talk to, using the tunneling capability in AirWatch and the micro-segmentation capability in NSX. Combining these two technologies vastly reduces the access footprint from the mobile device and the attack surface in the data center.

Organizations, like Vallejo Sanitation and Flood Control District, can raise their security posture from the mobile device to the data center using the AirWatch and NSX integration.This type of integration can also help organizations along their journey towards General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance, as data in transit utilizes AES-256 bit encryption.

6. Horizon & NSX Integration

We know that apps on mobile devices and data center resources can be tunneled and micro-segmented for an extra layer of security. We can take that same concept and apply it towards desktop virtualization.

Integrating Horizon and NSX, customers can effectively secure east-west traffic within the data center, preventing malware from spreading across the data center if a virtual desktop is compromised because each desktop is effectively isolated from other desktops. IT can quickly and easily administer networking and security policy that dynamically follows end users&#rsquo; virtual desktops and apps across infrastructure, devices and locations. This extra level of security takes desktop virtualization to a whole new level!

7. Just-in-Time Management Platform (JMP)

We introduced JMP earlier this year, our next-generation desktop and application delivery platform, which enables fust-in-time desktops and apps. Imagine a virtual desktop that is created when a user logs in and destroyed when that user logs out. IT can set up a pool of virtual desktops that fits this model, including pools that can access the internet and pools that cannot, effectively creating separation parameters for higher security. Virtual desktops in each pool only get created when a user logs into a specific pool.

With the JMP platform extending across Horizon 7 and Horizon Cloud, IT has the ability to inject apps and user environment settings into the desktop the moment a user logs in. Having pristine desktops created at every login and destroyed at every logoff eliminates malware that the user may have accidentally installed during the session.

8. Smart Policies

Smart Policies are available in Horizon 7 and Horizon Cloud for IT to provide end users with a truly contextual user experience. For example, policies dynamically change depending on the device used or the location services are being accessed from.

True single sign-on (SSO) enables end-to-end authentication from Workspace ONE to Horizon virtual desktops and apps, for a secure and simple user experience. Users aren&#rsquo;t prompted for multiple logins once they&#rsquo;ve authenticated into the Workspace ONE portal. Client policies such as enabling or disabling clipboard redirection, USB, printing and more can be set by IT using Smart Policies. Horizon is certified to meet FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria requirements as a result of the secure policies powered by Smart Policies.

For organizations looking for even more advanced security capabilities across Workspace ONE, look no further than Workspace ONE integrations with our ecosystem of mobile security leaders in the VMware Mobile Security Alliance. Workspace ONE integrates with technologies from our Mobile Threat Defense partners, Cloud Access Security Brokers partners and more to further enable comprehensive cybersecurity across mobile devices, apps, networks and cloud services.

JMP Is Here! See It Live at VMworld

Earlier this year, we introduced our Just-in-Time Management Platform(JMP—we pronounce it “jump”) to blow apart the desktop status quo. It&#rsquo;s evolved into something truly special that will change the way you provision desktops.

Tuesday, 5 p.m., at VMworld U.S.is your first chance to see this game-changing technology. There&#rsquo;ll be beer, cake references and the unstoppable Harry Labana (@harrylabana), vice president of management services and strategy for VMware End-User Computing (EUC).

Modernize Management with JMP Technologies in VMware Horizon & Take a Look at Where We Are Headed”

Add ADV1608BU via VMworld U.S. schedule builder.

Too Complex. Too Slow. Too Many Breakpoints.

Most of you use a static desktop provisioning model that makes it difficult for you to:

  • Deliver workspaces quickly and efficiently to all users and endpoints.
  • Be agile to end-user requests.
  • Keep up with OS updates and patches (especially with Windows 10).
  • Manage application and OS dependencies.
  • Respond when something goes wrong.

Just-in-Time Delivery

JMP is our answer to those problems. If I were in marketing, I&#rsquo;d sell it to you as “Simple. Fast. Bulletproof.” But I&#rsquo;m not; I&#rsquo;m a product guy. So, instead I&#rsquo;ll tell you that I recognize that you&#rsquo;re currently working too hard, fighting with yesterday&#rsquo;s provisioning tools and struggling with infrastructure that&#rsquo;s beyond its sell-by date. And I want to help.

In a JMP-managed world, you define the desktop workspace that your users want, but leave the building of it to our automation engine. JMP offers a single integrated console that leverages VMware Instant Clone Technology, VMware App Volumes and VMware User Environment Manager to deliver tailored workspaces built from a common gold image.

User-Centric Automation

You identify your users (individuals and groups), tag their desired attributes (policies, apps, infrastructure, etc.) and press go. The JMP engine then automates the creation of bespoke desktops that exactly meet your users&#rsquo; needs. On the device they want.

It&#rsquo;s as simple as it gets.

It gives you more time, flexibility and, oddly, control.

Too Complex. Too Slow. Too Many Breakpoints. Solved.

Going back to how we started this blog, JMP&#rsquo;s dynamic engine gives makes it easy for you to:

  • Deliver workspaces quickly and efficiently to all users and endpoints.
  • Be agile to end-user requests.
  • Keep up with OS updates and patches.
  • Manage application and OS dependencies.
  • Respond when something goes wrong.

Moving from a static to an automated management model gives you numerous benefits. Not least amongst them is the fact that you only consume resources when your users call upon them. No more pre-provisioning. No more downtime for patching. Just-in-time delivery across your entire desktop estate.

Cloud Ready

With JMP automating the actual desktop building, simply changing the target environment for your users can move someone from an on-prem environment to a hybrid or cloud based one. You now have a solution that leverages the infrastructure you&#rsquo;ve built, to deliver the desktops your CTO told you to prepare for.

See for Yourself

We like to say that we&#rsquo;re making managing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) a piece of cake. Everyone likes cake, right? Join Harry and I at VMworld, and get a sneak peek at the future of JMP—we&#rsquo;ll give you beer and maybe even cake. Possibly even a copy of Fusion 10. You should be there.

Empowering the Digital Workspace: How Corona-Norco Unified School District Does It

The award-winning Corona-Norco Unified School District serves more than 54,000 K-12 students from the California cities of Corona, Norco and Eastvale, as well as unincorporated parts of Riverside County. One of the 10 largest districts in the state, it employs approximately 5,000 people.

Like many public school districts, Corona-Norco has a goal to reduce capital expenses and technology costs overall for its schools to ensure equal access to technology. With costs rising and a small IT team challenged to drive all over a large, traffic-choked area to deliver services, the district faced a big choice when they decided to upgrade in-school computing: Buy more sophisticated and expensive hardware for each school, or take a different approach. They chose a suite of digital workspace solutions that make it simple and cost-effective to manage mobile devices, upgrade to Windows 10 and distribute and maintain apps using virtual desktops.

 

Digital Workspaces Put the Emphasis on Education, Not Patching

In 2012, the district started to roll out virtual desktops on zero clients at schools. Corona-Norco now supports 8,000 zero clients and around 5,000 virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) concurrent desktops—with a full-time staff of two. &#rsquo;We don&#rsquo;t see the support number changing dramatically as we significantly ramp up the number of devices,&#rdquo; said Brian Troudy, the district&#rsquo;s director of networking and infrastructure. Adding to the device count is the district&#rsquo;s embrace of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) model for maximum flexibility and choice. VMware AirWatch and VMware Workspace ONE extend the district&#rsquo;s digital workspaces beyond classroom computers to tablets and laptops, allowing faculty, students and staff to access any app on any device at any time.

VMware end-user computing solutions have simplified application management and updates, including the district&#rsquo;s upgrade to Windows 10. With the ability to test and patch images &#rsquo;behind the scenes&#rdquo; from a central location, instead of sending IT staff to schools and taking computers out of service, operating system (OS) and app updates are easy to deploy. Said Troudy, &#rsquo;Using the Horizon suite, App Volumes, Thin App and UEM, we&#rsquo;re able to layer into a user’s connection the applications that they need based on certain criteria—the location, class that they&#rsquo;re enrolled in—and all of that can be done dynamically and automatically based on the integrations that we have with other business systems.&#rdquo; IT staff can now spend their efforts working one-on-one with their end users on effective use of technology instead of managing and maintaining the underlying technology.

Teacher Peter D&#rsquo;Agostino noted that he used to have to stay at school after hours and come in early to maintain and patch classroom computers. It could take weeks to get new software installed. Now with VMware Horizon VDI, apps for engineering, history, music production and many more topics run faster and more reliably. &#rsquo;I no longer have to spend time updating computers on my own, taking time away from students. Now I spend my time looking for ways for kids to learn better. It just changes the game.&#rdquo;

 

Money Saved on Technology Goes Back to Student Programs

The district estimates it&#rsquo;s saved $5 million on hardware so far, and more than $75,000 on energy costs alone, by switching to a VDI model. &#rsquo;We&#rsquo;re able to, with VMware technologies, deploy labs of computers to our students at a quarter of the cost,” said Troudy. &#rsquo;It&#rsquo;s also allowed us to keep the experience of the desktop that they&#rsquo;re using up to date and relevant. It&#rsquo;s a night-and-day experience for our students.&#rdquo;

&#rsquo;With VMware … we were able to provide end-user computing at a much lower cost than we did six or seven years ago. There&#rsquo;s nothing that makes me happier as a CIO than to be able to say, I get out of the way, and let the school do what they need to do to make sure the students receive the education they deserve.&#rdquo;
—Ben Odipo, CIO and Assistant Superintendent of Information Technology, Corona-Norco Unified School District

Delivering Graphics Power with NVIDIA GRID & VMware Horizon Cloud Hosted

Today countless enterprise customers, including Seventy Seven Energy, leverage VMware Horizon Cloud with hosted infrastructure to deliver cloud-hosted desktops and applications to any device, without the hassle and cost of managing their own infrastructure. These organizations rely on Horizon Cloud to deliver virtual apps and desktops to knowledge workers, seasonal employees and contract workers, as well as those involved in mergers and acquisitions.

At VMworld 2017, we will introduce high-performance, GPU-backed desktops to extend the reach of Horizon Cloud hosted to engineers and designers who have traditionally relied on dedicated graphics workstations to utilize 3D applications and graphics intensive applications and to visually analyze large data sets.

In partnership with NVIDIA, this joint solution taps into the power of NVIDIA GRID. Come fall, organizations utilizing Horizon Cloud hosted will be able to take advantage of this new capability, and these power users will be able to access virtual workstations on any device.

Key Benefits of Virtual Workstations

  • Deliver secure, immersive 3D graphics from the cloud. Power users and designers get the same graphics experience they would expect from dedicated hardware, delivered securely and cost effectively.
  • Improve collaboration workflow and reduce costs. Dispersed teams can collaborate on large graphics and data sets in real time in the cloud.
  • Provide greater security for mission-critical data. Protect intellectual property and improve security by centralizing data files.
  • Centralize management. Use a single pane of glass to assign graphics resources to end users in a balanced way. IT can now control user profiles to flexibly deliver the graphics performance needed by each user. This includes hardware resources, operating systems and applications.
  • Virtualize any desktop application. Bring the power of virtualization to the user who needs it most to be productive.
  • Provide flexibility and remote access to power users. Virtual workstations work independently of location, endpoint and network. Users can access their desktops and 3D applications while at work, home or traveling.

Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure—It Keeps Getting Better!

Don&#rsquo;t you love it when a good thing just gets even better? Like when your smartphone can double as your SLR camera or your thermostat can also water the plants. We at VMware definitely do and recently worked our magic on our VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™.

Earlier this year, we announced the Horizon Cloud service. Horizon Cloud is a software service from VMware that allows customers to easily and cost-effectively deploy cloud-hosted or on-premises virtual desktops and apps to any device, anywhere. Now, as more and more organizations adopt a multi-cloud strategy to leverage &#rsquo;best-fit&#rdquo; cloud capabilities, avoid cloud vulnerability and optimize cost, they face new challenges of moving between clouds and inefficiencies of operating multiple solutions. Wouldn&#rsquo;t it be nice to have a desktop virtualization service that could also easily span clouds and enable a mix and match of public and private clouds based on business needs?

The Horizon Cloud team has been working hard on this, and we are delighted to offer a solution with Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure! Each is great separately, but together they are amazing. Horizon Cloud comes from the leader in desktop and app virtualization. Microsoft Azure is the fastest growing public cloud provider today, available in 38 regions across the globe, not to mention the natural choice for organizations relying on Windows-based applications and enterprise applications like Microsoft Office 365.

Upcoming Features for Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure

Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure allows you to bring your own, existing Microsoft Azure infrastructure capacity and pair it with the Horizon Cloud service. Here are some of the exciting features you can expect:

  • Application & Session Desktop Delivery
