HID Global is collaborating with VMware to drive mass adoption of mobile access to digital and physical places by adding HID Mobile Access for opening buildings and doors to VMware Workspace ONE, an intelligence-driven digital workspace platform for managing any app on any device. The collaboration will make it possible for Workspace ONE users, for the first time, to more securely open doors with their smartphones as part of a unified mobile experience that also enables them to access applications, computers, networks, data and cloud-based services.
Workspace ONE is an industry leader in unified endpoint management (UEM) and the collaboration with HID will fuel even broader interest and uptake by enterprise organizations focused on blending physical and digital employee experiences with technology.
“Adding physical access control capabilities to Workspace ONE will bring a unique element to our customers’ digital transformation journeys as we take yet another step in redefining what it means to provide empowering digital employee experiences across any application on any device,” said Tony Kueh, vice president of product management, end user computing, VMware.
HID mobile credentials are delivered to Workspace ONE through the HID Origo cloud-based access control platform that provides a suite of integration, enablement and developer tools and services. The platform also streamlines mobile ID replenishment over the air when employees lose or must replace their smartphones and other mobile devices.
“The collaboration between two of the leading companies in the fields of cyber security and physical security will help accelerate the use of converged physical and logical access control on mobile devices,” said Hilding Arrehed, vice president of cloud services, physical access control, HID Global. “The solution underscores HID’s and VMware’s shared commitment to bring to market one of the industry’s first unified access control solution for a user base of this size.”
Workspace ONE integrates access control, application management and multi-platform endpoint management into a single platform and is available as a cloud service or on-premises deployment.
