What’s New: Today at VMworld 2021, VMware announced a partnership with Intel to deliver security, maintenance and intelligent analytics for commercial PCs. Integrating Intel® vPro® platform technology with VMware Workspace ONE cloud management will enable PC security across silicon, devices and applications and allow automated maintenance to help keep PCs up to date from anywhere, even when out of network or off domain.

“With billions of people working remotely, security has never been more critical for businesses. Our deepened partnership with VMware will enable companies to deliver an enhanced computing experience for employees that is grounded in end-to-end security with our leading solutions: Workspace ONE and the Intel vPro platform. Together, we are addressing the challenges and complexities of keeping employees both productive and secure – no matter their location.”

–Gregory Bryant, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group

How It Works: This integration will combine the rich hardware-based telemetry capable Intel vPro platform with the cloud-native management, analytics and automation tool, Workspace ONE, to gain remote configuration, maintenance, and access to valuable insights like Wi-Fi performance and battery health. The capability is expected to be released as a tech preview with select customers in late 2021, with broader availability in the first half of 2022.

Why It Matters: Intel and VMware are helping organizations adapt and stay secure as we move toward more agile, hybrid work environments. Expanding and streamlining an organization’s IT access to devices helps break down silos in the workplace, with IT members able to automate a broader set of maintenance tasks and address issues faster and with better communication to proactively decrease security risks and improve the employee experience across teams.
