Expanding the reach of your business applications without compromising security is a big reason businesses buy Identity Management (IDM) systems. The task is tougher these days as a popular strategy involves a combination of SaaS applications and a variety of on-premise applications. To achieve this securely, some kind of virtual private network (VPN) or other remote access service is usually required to connect remote users to applications.
VMware Workspace One Access has a lot going for it in this regard. Workspace One Access does many of the security and management tasks organizations demand from an IDM solution while providing secure access to legacy apps, even from mobile or employee-owned devices. Enterprise depth may be overwhelming for some small businesses, but VMware’s feature set and superb implementation still deserve an Editors’ Choice award in this category along with Okta.
