AirWatch Remote Management in VMware Workspace ONE
VMware Workspace ONE unifies VMware Identity Manager with AirWatch technology into a single platform. Powered by AirWatch unified endpoint management (UEM) technology, Workspace ONE enables access control and application management. Available for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and on-premises deployments, Workspace ONE enables IT to deliver and manage any app on any device.
At the heart of AirWatch UEM, sits the AirWatch console. Serving as the administrative user interface (UI) for security configurations, the AirWatch console puts the “unified” in UEM.
AirWatch Advanced Remote Management exists within this larger context as an AirWatch console feature. This feature establishes a remote connection with end-user devices, facilitating troubleshooting and maintenance tasks.
