New Features in Workspace ONE Access December 2019 Release

Introducing Risk Based Conditional Access

With the new Risk Score Auth Adaptor, you can now factor in a user's risk score into authentication decisions.  This means that you can take actions of Allow, Step-up authentication, or Deny access based on a user's high, medium, or low risk score. The risk score comes from the Workspace ONE Intelligence service. To learn more about Risk Based Conditional Access, see Configuring Risk Score Based Authentication in the VMware Workspace ONE Access Administration documentation.

Changes to Virtual Launch Experience

Workspace ONE Access was required to cache user passwords for a seamless launch experience while launching Virtual Apps such as Horizon and Citrix from the catalog. This password caching was needed only for setups where True SSO was not enabled.

With the upcoming release, Workspace ONE Access will provide admins the ability to control this behavior. The Enable Password Caching setting in the Identity & Access Management > Setup > Preferences page is introduced to control caching of end user passwords during the launch of Virtual Apps such as Horizon and Citrix from the catalog. With this change, passwords are no longer cached during the time of login to Workspace ONE Access. Administrators will have the option to allow or disallow caching of passwords when the end user launches a Virtual App from the catalog for the very first time in that session. This setting is enabled by default.

As a result of this change, if Enable Password caching is enabled, end users are prompted to enter a password when accessing a Virtual App for the first time. After that, all subsequent launches will not require a password.

To ensure a more seamless SSO launch experience for Horizon launches, True SSO can be configured.


The Workspace ONE Access documentation for the Cloud service is in the VMware Workspace ONE Access Documentation center.
