Workspace ONE provides users secure access to cloud, mobile, and Windows applications managed from a unified catalog. For device access, the Workspace ONE native application is available for iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices.

When Workspace ONE is deployed, the following VMware Identity Manager and AirWatch services must be implemented.

  • VMware Enterprise Systems Connector installed and configured. You can either configure the AirWatch Cloud Connector (ACC) component or the VMware Identity Manager Connector component.

  • Integration of your company's Active Directory with VMware Identity Manager or with AirWatch Cloud Connector to sync users and groups from Active Directory to the Workspace ONE service.

  • Configure VMware Identity Manager with AirWatch API keys and the administrator root certificate and enable the unified catalog, compliance check and, user password authentication through AirWatch.
