This is a weekly log of everything that’s happened in the EUC, EMM, and desktop virtualization space.
Our blog posts
Check out EMM in Android P, the Android Management API, and the Android Management Experience. Recently, there's always something new to learn about in Android Enterprise.
Teradici is working on a broker to go with Cloud Access. DaaS is viable for many use cases these days, and it just makes sense for Teradici to offer a cloud-native broker.
Are we there yet? An update on Citrix Workspace experience. By Pete Downing. Citrix is pushing a security message, and they have a lot of interesting components they could put together. But how far will they go, and will Citrix become an IDaaS?
The Android Security 2017 Year in Review white paper is out. This has lots of numbers on security and potentially harmful apps, straight from Google’s telemetry. On first glance, installed malware rates are lower, but this year’s report doesn’t break out security patch metrics in the same way that last year’s report does. I’ll write up a deep dive for Monday. (Update: It will probably be later in the week, as I'm waiting to hear back on some questions I submitted.) If you want to look at the report, you can find the PDF here; and you can also read about last year’s report.
Four more EMM vendors are integrating with Google’s Chrome Enterprise management capabilities—Cisco Meraki, Citrix XenMobile, IBM MaaS36, and ManageEngine Mobile Device Manager Plus. They follow VMware AirWatch’s integration, announced last August. Google Chrome Enterprise (formerly Chrome Device Management) manages Chrome OS devices, and has APIs that allow EMM vendors to use it as middleware. Also in the announcement, there are several new security and management policies, plus new support for Group Policy Objects.
More things that crossed my desk this week:
- The Intune Browser now supports Azure AD for SSO and conditional access.
- Here’s the Dropbox S-1. Lots of numbers and details, naturally.
- Microsoft Teams is used in 200,000 organizations. (Via VentureBeat.)
- What’s new in VMware Identity Manager: OpenID Connect support, administrator role-based access controls, and other updates.
