Creating a consumer-like experience for remote workers, outside the corporate office, has become more and more complex for organizations that continue to use multiple disconnected tools to manage various rugged deployments. To address these challenges, enterprise IT is shifting towards a unified endpoint management (UEM) approach. This approach for purpose-built deployments gives IT greater visibility, simplified management, increased security, and improved operational efficiency through combined management tools and processes.
This whitepaper will delve into the evolution of rugged devices, the management challenges associated with such deployments, and how a UEM solution can address these challenges to enable a fully connected environment that is both manageable and secure.

IT organizations are largely siloed between the desktop and mobile management worlds. IT has addressed management of mobile devices with modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. However, Windows desktops have been managed separately using older PC lifecycle management (PCLM) technologies, which have fallen short of basic IT and end user expectations of today’s evolved, mobile-cloud workforce.
The VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution is a single, platform-independent approach for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. The solution combines traditional client management requirements with modern EMM efficiencies enabling IT to deliver OS policies, patches, and apps over-the-air. Cloud-first management with instant push technologies and self-service capabilities ensure lower cost management, better security, and peak user experience regardless of the device being used to access the corporate environment.

Apple began aligning management profiles in Mac and iOS software years ago so that Macs could be managed alongside iOS devices with mobile device management (MDM). Each macOS update has delivered additional MDM controls, enabling IT to manage more endpoints together. Unified endpoint management brings together traditional client management with a modern enterprise mobility management framework to simplify the management process for IT. This whitepaper summarizes the key challenges of Mac management and outlines considerations and product features to help ensure a successful deployment.
Smart card authentication has been the de facto standard within the US Federal Government since the early 2000’s, speci cally with the issuance of FIPS 201 by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Both the Department of Defense (DoD) as well as all Federal Civilian agencies must utilize smart cards for physical, logical, and network access. The DoD utilizes a Common Access Card where as their civilian counterparts utilize a Personal Identi cation Veri cation (PIV) card.
In today’s workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. IT has to integrate this heterogeneous mix of devices into critical business operations, secure them from unauthorized use, and manage them so end users enjoy a consistent, productive experience no matter how or where they access the digital workspace. The answer is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform.
VMware AirWatch follows the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) FIPS-recommended procedures for utilizing FIPS Validated Modules also known as FIPS 140-2 Inside Validated. This signed attestation letter from Booz Allen Hamilton validates AirWatch properly uses FIPS 140-2 validated modules for all its cryptographic functionality. This includes the core AirWatch platform architecture for data at rest and data in transit, AirWatch Apple iOS, Android, and Windows 10 Software Development Kits (SDKs).
Businesses are finally committing to hybrid cloud strategies on a large scale, partly because CIOs and CEOs are convinced of their benefits, and partly because they have become a business imperative, especially with the consumerization of IT. Today’s employees no longer consume information on one company-issued device, but instead they do so from a variety of endpoint devices. Additionally, a wide range of application delivery models have evolved—including software-as-a-service (SaaS), Web-based, Windows, and mobile applications—largely because of their convenience, flexibility, and ability to scale on demand.
