The days of work from home and remote work hasn’t ended yet, so at VMworld 2021, VMware announced a partnership with Intel to help deliver better security and intelligent analytics for commercial PCs. This is done by integrating Intel® vPro® platform technology with VMware Workspace ONE cloud management.
This step will be essential in boosting the PC security of millions of workers across the globe who still rely on automated cloud solutions and virtual PCs. With VMware Workspace ONE cloud management will enable PC security across silicon, devices and applications, allowing automated maintenance to help keep PCs up to date from anywhere, even when out of network or off domain.
“With billions of people working remotely, security has never been more critical for businesses. Our deepened partnership with VMware will enable companies to deliver an enhanced computing experience for employees that is grounded in end-to-end security with our leading solutions: Workspace ONE and the Intel vPro platform. Together, we are addressing the challenges and complexities of keeping employees both productive and secure – no matter their location.”Gregory Bryant, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group
The capability is expected to be released as a tech preview with select customers in late 2021, with broader availability in the first half of 2022. Both the companies think that this will help organizations adapt and stay secure as we move toward more agile, hybrid work environments.
