Privacy remains front and center at VMware and within the Workspace ONE platform. Workspace ONE product development follows Privacy-by-Design principles to ensure privacy is proactively embedding into the product's core.
The separation of work and personal apps along with transparent communication around device control and data collection gives employees peace of mind and the freedom to access corporate resources on their device of choice.
Not all types of user-generated data is necessary for the deployment of the Workspace ONE. Control what data gets collected by the platform with easy to use configurations.
For internally built mobile applications, developers can leverage the Workspace ONE Privacy Software Development Kit (SDK) to deliver the same Privacy Guard notices. The Privacy SDK is available with any Workspace ONE license and only takes a few minutes to implement.
Privacy Guard notices are presented to employees when they first open a Workspace ONE application and are accessible any time while the app is on the device. When a change occurs that impacts employee privacy, the employee is notified. This includes changes in enrollment status and changes in MDM or app container policies.
Privacy Guard includes a new role in the Workspace ONE UEM console specifically for a “Privacy Officer”. The Privacy Officer role has access to view devices and system settings that affect users and has full editing rights around privacy.
