Workspace ONE Access solves a wide range of business issues, although it is mostly utilized in our organization for two-factor authentication. Workspace ONE Access was utilized by our company to implement two-factor authentication or to limit access to particular resources. By leveraging Workspace ONE Access to monitor user activity or enforce corporate standards, we also used it to increase compliance. It was also utilized to give Single Sign-On (SSO) or to develop unique workflows in order to increase productivity.
  • Secure Access to organisation data and applications.
  • Multiple user identities logins.
  • Simplifying resources to corporate entities.
  • Support for more Single Sign-On (SSO) protocols.
  • More comprehensive dashboards and reporting.
  • Greater integration with other VMware products.
Workspace ONE Access is a good fit for a variety of corporate scenarios, such as the need for businesses to provide secure access to their data and applications, the need to lower the costs associated with managing multiple user identities, and the need to boost employee productivity by streamlining access to corporate resources. It is less appropriate if you are not using all of its function and just use it for a particular function undermining its capabilities for example in our organization the use case is primarily restricted to giving staff members safe access to company information and applications which debunks its other features such as compliance and product support that it provides.
  • Multi-factor Authentication accessing applications or Data provides better security infrastructure.
  • Managing multi user identities.
  • Creating custom workflows.

We use VMWare Identity manager (Workspace One) to provide remote access to university applications and data. We replaced several older systems with this product and consolidated several access methods (that used to vary depending on who you were and what you were doing) into one single place to go for access. We replaced a Citrix farm form application delivery, and various VPN/Remote Desktop and WebDAV based solutions for remote access to data.
  • It provides an "SSO" type experience for access to applications and data. Users sign in to one "portal" and then have access to whatever university systems they need to do their job.
  • It greatly simplifies securing these types of access. Firewall rulesets can be made much simpler and easier to manage, as well.
  • There is not a ton of look/feel customization for VMWare Identity manager. We have had some complaints about the icons for the delivered applications, and it's very difficult to set up custom icons.
  • Integrating Identity Manager with our enterprise authentication solution, which is based on AD FS was not immediately intuitive or easy to do. It was possible, but it took some work.
  • Integrating Identity Manager with VMWare's own TrueSSO product (to allow certificate based authentication to work with MFA) was not intuitive and took some support calls.
VMWare Identity Manager is a fantastic solution if you're looking for a "single point of access" type experience for delivering applications and data to your users. There are some features it lacks compared to some competitors, particularly when it comes to integration with other products and customization of look/feel, but we have been very successful using it to provide an easier user experience than our old systems were able to deliver.
  • We were able to replace several products from different companies with a single one. IDM replaced a Citrix farm as well as various VPN solutions.
  • Identity Manager has had a positive impact on our workload on our IT and Security engineers, as well as our desktop support group. We are now able to manage one location for application delivery instead of many, and security and other troubleshooting is much simplified, which means a lighter workload for those groups.
We also examined several other options, particularly Lenovo Unified Workspace. The Lenovo product had some advantages over the VMWare product, particularly in the areas of customization of the look / feel and user experience. However, we have been a longtime VMWare customer, and we have VMWare VDI and other product implementations in place now that paired very well with the VMWare product.
