VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon Client 4.5  are now available on the Google Play store. Both can be installed on Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones and used with Samsung DeX Station, which enables USB connectivity to peripherals.

The joint Samsung and VMware solution delivers a unified, digital workspace to keep end users productive. Users can seamlessly transition between their on-the-go mobile device and their full-size desk workspace that includes a monitor, mouse and keyboard.

With Samsung and VMware, end users can quickly move from mobile device to desktop for continuous productivity at work.

Workspace ONE is a simple and secure enterprise platform for delivering and managing any application on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphone. Integrating identity management, real-time application delivery and enterprise mobility management, Workspace ONE helps IT engage digital employees, reduce the threat of data leakage and modernize traditional operations for the mobile-cloud era.

With the Samsung DeX Station, end users can turn their Galaxy S8 or S8+ into a true PC experience. When docked at the DeX Station, Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones launch a special DeX mode on the connected, external monitor, and applications can be opened in multiple, separate windows. We recommend connecting a mouse, keyboard and Ethernet cable for added productivity.

With Workspace ONE and Horizon Client 4.5 installed on the device, DeX users can take advantage of on-the-go access to their Windows, mobile and cloud applications. Without compromising corporate security, this combination is an ideal choice for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) users.

Here’s an example of a Galaxy S8 running DeX mode on a monitor with a Horizon virtual desktop and Workspace ONE.

With Horizon, DeX users will also experience Blast Extreme adaptive transport for high-performing cloud applications and virtual desktops—right from Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices.

Meanwhile, users can easily multitask between their personal and corporate worlds and even take phone calls. While docked in the DeX Station, call functionality works seamlessly with a Bluetooth headset, without interrupting the desktop experience.

Organizations that want to test the Galaxy S8 or S8+ with Horizon and/or Workspace ONE can quickly sign up at VMware TestDrive for End-User Computing. IT can conveniently access a free, cloud-based demo environment within minutes—without spinning up internal resources and/or infrastructure.
