VMware, Google Expand Partnership To Boost Chromebooks Adoption
NEW DELHI: Global cloud services provider VMware on Friday expanded its partnership with Google to accelerate the adoption of Chromebooks.
With its "Workspace ONE" platform that unifies endpoint management for IT, VMware will enable one-click secure authentications of applications for organisations deploying these laptops.
"VMware has been working with Google since 2015 to offer secure Android devices and applications, most recently with advanced support for Android Enterprise," said Sumit Dhawan, Senior Vice President VMware, in a statement.
The two companies also collaborated on advancements to unify native Android applications.
"From Windows to web to mobile apps, this partnership with VMware and the integration with VMware Workspace One will allow our customers to easily and securely deploy applications on Chrome OS devices," said Rajen Sheth, Director (Product Management Chrome OS) Google.
According to the market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC), application ecosystems are a major factor in the success of an endpoint operating system and growth in the Chrome OS application ecosystem has improved the quality of the user experience with the platform.
"Adding VMware Workspace ONE to further support the management and delivery of business applications to Chrome OS devices is a logical move forward," said Phil Hochmuth, Programme Director, IDC.
