We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple.""A very easy to use solution.""The most valuable feature is policy-driven control of the devices.""The remote management and location capabilities are good.""The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol.""VMware Workspace ONE has been stable so far.""The feature with the highest rating for me is its employee management. I can also praise how versatile it is in terms of operating systems. It has good support for multiple operating systems and can easily manage them all. Not just that, but it can also support any kind of tool that can be run on all these operating systems.""We've found the solution to be easy to use."

Cons
"Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace.""Cost of licensing is quite high.""When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM.""The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user.""The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved.""It's not accurate enough when it comes to sending items to end-users.""From an identity perspective, there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to integration with other solutions. I would say it needs more capabilities in terms of direct integrations, including cloud identity solution integrations.""Technical support needs to be more responsive to our requests."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified.""The cost is a little bit high.""VMware Workspace ONE is not cheap; it's quite expensive. However, in the end, they gave us a reasonable price.""If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is.""I think that the price is reasonable.""Pricing is an area that could be improved.""Its pricing was okay for our company.""It's an expensive tool."
