Upcoming changes to VMware AirWatch Agent for Windows Desktop

What’s Changing?

In the next release of the VMware AirWatch Agent for Windows Desktop, the product name will be changing to VMware Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub. This will be released as version 18.10 following the new year.month naming convention for Workspace ONE UEM and related products.

This release will encompass visual and branding changes from AirWatch Agent to VMware Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub only and will not include functional changes. This means that file and process names for the installer, Windows services and additional agents such as the Software Deployment Agent, will not change. 

You can expect to see some dialogues or references where the AirWatch branding is still used.  While the transition to Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub is completed, these references will be removed in future releases.
