Overview

Webex supports integration with Mobile Device Management (MDM) tools such as VMware Workspace ONE Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). These tools allow you to provision, configure and control access to mobile applications deployed in your organization. They also allow you to monitor, manage and secure corporate mobile devices used in your organization.

You can use Workspace ONE UEM to enrol and manage Webex on personally owned devices (BYOD) and corporate phones.

This document helps you import the Webex App (for iOS or Android) into your Workspace ONE UEM app catalog, configure the app, and distribute it to users.
