Together, VMware Workspace ONE and the Okta Identity Cloud simplify and streamline deployment of the intelligence-driven digital workspace, empowering all employees to access their applications, through a consistent, consumer-simple experience across all their devices. Organizations can leverage their existing investments and benefit from advanced identity capabilities, unified endpoint management, insights, and automation across all platforms, for greater security and lower complexity. This integration will enhance their employees’ user experience by providing a more seamless, consistent and password-less experience, while maintaining security and compliance that IT needs.
With the joint solution, customers receive additional security and compliance options by enhancing conditional access integration between the two platforms. Okta’s user-centric access control layer, with policies around credentials, location and networks combine with VMware’s device-centric access control layer with policies around device state, compliance and posture help customers add an extra layer of security, reducing the risk of data loss and keeping organizations within compliance.
Having a consumer-simple user experience is critical for any organization that wants to drive higher business and employee productivity. The integration between Workspace ONE and the Okta Identity Cloud delivers simple and secure access to any app on any device. User experience is enhanced with access to all apps - Windows, web, SaaS, mobile, virtual – plus the more than 6000 integrated Okta SAML apps in the Okta Integration Network, using single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) through the Workspace ONE app catalog, on any device. The combination of these solutions help provide a more seamless, consistent and password-less experience.
Customers are able to leverage their existing investments in VMware and Okta to help simplify the deployment and management of user lifecycle, apps and devices. With Workspace ONE and the Okta Identity Cloud, customers can continue to accelerate their journey to the digital workspace.
