VMWARE RECOGNIZED AS A 2021 GARTNER PEER INSIGHTS CUSTOMERS’ CHOICE FOR UNIFIED ENDPOINT MANAGEMENT (UEM)

Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice Distinction Is Based on Feedback and Ratings from IT Professionals

VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) today announced it has been named the 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). VMware Workspace ONE, a digital workspace platform, was evaluated as part of this program.

“This year IT organizations undertook the Herculean effort of rapidly setting up and maintaining ongoing support for a fully-distributed workforce. For our customers, Workspace ONE was critical in this effort as it provides cloud-first management with context-aware security features to keep employees productive and engaged wherever they are working,” said Shankar Iyer, senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware. “Our customers overcame incredible IT and business continuity challenges this year and we’re honored to receive this distinction. We view it as validation of our platform strategy as we continue to enhance Workspace ONE to meet our customers’ evolving needs.”

Gartner Peer Insights is a free peer review and ratings platform designed for enterprise software and services decision makers who have experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product or service. To qualify for Customers’ Choice distinction, a product must achieve an overall rating equal to or higher than the mean rating for that market. In addition, the product must receive more than 50 eligible published customer reviews during a one-year submission period.

Workspace ONE received an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 with more than half of 73 respondents giving it five stars as of January 6, 2021. Examples of Workspace ONE customer feedback submitted as part of the Gartner Peer Insights program are available here.

Last year, VMware was also named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)1 and scored highest in 3 out of 4 use cases in the Gartner Critical Capabilities for UEM Tools2.

Whatever device employees choose to use, a distributed workforce requires modern management with intrinsic security features built in. With Workspace ONE, IT teams can better protect remote endpoints that are accessing organizational assets while delivering a digital workspace that empowers employees to be engaged and productive, right from the start.
