Which is the better product?
Microsoft Intune is a great tool for managing a mobile device fleet while keeping access control. The solution makes it easy to control security and manage the usage of mobile apps when you have a distributed workforce. It gives me peace of mind that I can manage how my staff accesses and shares our company data.
I especially like the autopilot feature, which is a great time-saver. The centralized dashboard and customization provide a great user experience. It is a good alternative for UEM (Unified EndPoint Management) solutions if you don’t need an entirely new workspace, with the advantage of having strong security features, like analyzing risks.
The setup, however, is disappointingly difficult, considering it should integrate seamlessly with other Microsoft 365 products. I would like to see more interactive reporting and more proactive (rather than reactive) security controls.
VMware Workspace One is a digital workspace platform that integrates access control and application management across environments, devices, and platforms. Although it includes remote mobile management, I find VMware Workspace is a more complete solution.
The solution lets you control the remote devices by implementing security policies. I like that it is versatile and integrates with multiple operating systems.
It is really easy to use and because it is centrally managed, you just deliver all the applications you need for the devices from the central console. This is very helpful when you need to onboard or make changes to multiple phones or tablets.
The installation is quite difficult and can be confusing to a non-skilled user. It would be helpful if you could select and customize the console so you could check the security by type of product.
Microsoft Intune is more focused on security and access control, so it would be a better solution for companies under strict regulations. However, it has problems integrating with other operating systems like Mac. I find VMware easier to use and it integrates very well across systems.
Let's discuss together what is the main difference between Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)? What is the relation between the two of them?
