VMware Workspace One UEM SaaS Deployment Model
With a cloud-based implementation, the Workspace ONE UEM software is delivered as a service (SaaS). To synchronize Workspace ONE with internal resources such as Active Directory or a Certificate Authority, you use a separate cloud connector, which can be implemented using an AirWatch Cloud Connector. The separate connector can run within the internal network in an outbound-only connection mode, meaning the connector receives no incoming connections from the DMZ.
The simple implementation usually consists of:
- A Workspace ONE UEM tenant
- VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector
In a SaaS deployment model, the VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector resides in your internal network and integrates with your internal systems, allowing AirWatch to leverage them for various functionality (e.g. certificates, directory services).
