Snapdragon-powered Always On, Always Connected* PCs are designed to solve many of the problems that have long plagued PC users: short battery life, slow start-up cycles, lack of continuous connectivity, and, for enterprise users especially, the ability to be productive and have a security-rich connection. When we innovate, our customers are able to compete, innovate, and deliver the kind of game-changing solutions that are being announced today.

Today, with the announcement of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform, the modern workforce can now utilize Always On, Always Connected PCs, starting with Windows 10 Enterprise. From security and identity to virtualization, productivity, device management and VPN, here are just a few companies we are working with to bring these amazing productivity devices to the enterprise:

  • Symantec Endpoint Protection is designed to help keep Always On, Always Connected Enterprise devices secure. “Symantec Endpoint Protection helps secure devices that are built with the Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform address today’s mobile security risks, and the emerging security challenges of tomorrow,” said Javed Hasan, SVP of Endpoint and Datacenter Security at Symantec Corporation.
  • VMware Workspace ONE from VMware, which specializes in cloud infrastructure and digital workspace technology, enables users to consume Windows apps on-the-go and enterprise admins to stay on top of their Snapdragon-powered Windows PC lifecycle and health status from the cloud. Admins can view a dashboard of their enterprise device pool, including the apps and policies installed on the devices, the OS versions, and the updates the devices are running. “Mobility advancements make a perimeter-less workforce a reality for most businesses and yet a challenge for IT, which now needs to balance expectations around best user experience and security,” said Shawn Bass, End-user Computing CTO, VMware. “We are excited to work with Qualcomm Technologies to meet these demands of an always connected modern workforce. By extending Workspace ONE support for Windows on Snapdragon devices, we enable users to stay productive on-the-go with full fidelity Windows 10 apps and desktop and at the same time, provide IT a modern management platform to help keep their endpoints secured almost anywhere.”
  • Targus and Qualcomm Technologies are working together to expand the Snapdragon ecosystem. Both companies’ engineering and technical teams continue to work closely to ensure that Targus Universal Docking Stations, mice, keyboards, and Type-C peripherals perform seamlessly on Snapdragon-powered Windows PCs. You can check out Targus enterprise workspace solutions powered by Qualcomm Technologies at CES 2019.

Additional enterprise solutions now working with the Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform include Microsoft Azure, F5, Palo Alto networks, Tanium, Forcepoint, PulseSecure, WD, MobileIron, Citrix, McAfee, Microsoft Intune and Office 365, and more.

The Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform redefines productivity: enterprise-grade applications and security, near constant connectivity, and powerful multi-day battery life*. As 2019 quickly approaches, Qualcomm Technologies is helping ensure it will be the most productive year yet.

*Always On, Always Connected PCs require network connection. **Battery life varies significantly based on settings, usage, and other factors.
