Windows Desktop Applications

You can use Workspace ONE UEM applications in addition to Workspace ONE UEM MDM features to further secure devices and configure them with added functionality. Use the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Windows to catalog and manage your applications and to facilitate communication between the device and the Workspace ONE UEM console.

Workspace ONE Productivity Apps

Use Workspace ONE Content to safeguard corporate content on mobile devices. Deploy the Workspace ONE Web to enable secure Web browsing for your end users. Download the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Windows to monitor your devices on a more granular level.

Deploying Win32 apps to Windows Desktop devices requires the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub to be present on the device.

Important: All public applications deployed to Windows Desktop devices are unmanaged applications. Unmanaged apps cannot be pushed to devices (end users must download the app themselves) nor can unmanaged apps be removed from devices through Enterprise Wipe.

VMware Workspace ONE App for Windows Desktop

When the Workspace ONE application is installed on devices, users can sign in to Workspace ONE to access a catalog of applications that your organization enabled for them. When the application is configured with single sign-on, users do not need to reenter their sign-in credentials when they start the app.

The Workspace ONE user interface works similarly on phones, tablets, and desktops. Workspace ONE opens to a Launcher page that displays resources that have been pushed to Workspace ONE. Users can tap or click to search, add, and update apps; right-click on an app to remove it from the page, and go to the Catalog page to add entitled resources. If an app requires device enrollment, Workspace ONE uses adaptive management to start the enrollment process for the end user.

Configure the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Windows Desktop

You can update the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub settings to meet certain business needs.

  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Devices & Users > Windows > Windows Desktop > Intelligent Hub Settings.
  2. Configure the Data Sample Interval (min) menu item to define the intervals at which the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub takes samples of data.
  3. Configure the MDM Channel Security menu item to set the app-layer security between the device and the Workspace ONE UEM console.
  4. Configure the Privacy settings if you use analytics tools for data collection.
    • Show Privacy Screen - Display a screen to tell your users that you collect data.
    • Collect Analytics - Collect various data points, like app creshes and endpoint numbers and send that data to your app analytics vendor.

What to do next

You can prevent end users from disabling the Workspace ONE UEM Service on their device using a Custom Settings profile.
