To provide secured mobile working environments
Virtualization and cloud infrastructure provider VMware and Samsung have forged a strategic collaboration to deliver virtual desktops to mobile devices and enable a new class of dual persona mobile devices.
The firms plan to integrate both desktop virtualization platform VMware View and VMware Horizon Mobile with Samsung mobile devices, including Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9.
VMware Horizon Mobile and Samsung smartphones will enable enterprises to securely manage an employee’s connected mobile workspace in isolation from their personal environment, providing enterprise IT with security for corporate data while allowing end users to have the privacy and control of their different mobile environments on a single device.
Samsung mobile devices and VMware View 5 will deliver access to corporate data from a centralized infrastructure with a high-fidelity experience for users needing applications, unified communications and 3-D graphics for real-world productivity on demand, from any location.
VMware Global Strategic Alliances vice president Parag Patel said the company’s end-user computing solutions enable customers to break free from more than two decades of complex, device-centric computing, and deliver a more user-centric experience for the connected enterprise.
"Working with Samsung, a leading provider of Android smart devices, our goal is to help IT organizations retain control and security of corporate data and applications while enabling end users to utilize their own wireless devices," Patel said.
Under the new relationship, VMware and Samsung will also collaborate on joint go-to-market and sales engagements.
