Although Android for Work is setting a new standard for Android devices, AirWatch is committed to supporting unique Android deployments for our customers. To manage Android devices not yet utilizing Android for Work, AirWatch supports:
Our strong relationships with OEMs enable comprehensive management for Android devices across manufacturers. Click a logo to learn more about our support for different device manufacturers.
AirWatch allows IT to manage based on unique use cases with our flexible approaches to device, container and multiuser management. AirWatch Agent is available in the Google Play store and allows for full device, consistent management across OEMs. With an intuitive, prompted enrollment, AirWatch Agent provides an easy user experience. For additional management capabilities, services apps for specific OEMs are available (where allowed by manufacturer). AirWatch Container enables IT to manage corporate data on devices without full device management, and provide consistency across Android OEMs. For locking down devices, AirWatch Launcher allows IT to configure the apps, wallpaper and settings available to users, and if devices are shared, AirWatch® Multiuser Management allows users to check out/check in devices.
AirWatch enables administrators to easily manage devices through the Agent or Container. Administrators can monitor devices with GPS tracking and policy compliance, cellular networks and cellular data usage. If necessary, admins can enterprise wipe devices from the admin console.
To secure Android devices, AirWatch enables various authentication methods, both during enrollment and before granting access to corporate resources. Administrators can require complex passcodes with history and expiration policies, enforce mandatory encryption and wipe enterprise data from rooted devices automatically. You can also set restrictions for device features, including screen capture and Bluetooth.
AirWatch integrates with the Google Play and Amazon stores to enable users to easily find and install apps in AirWatch Catalog or Google Play. AirWatch productivity apps include mobile applications for email, browsing, content and messaging. Authentication certificates for email, Wi-Fi and VPN can be silently installed and removed from devices, enabling seamless access to corporate resources for end users. For developers, AirWatch AppShield and our extensive app ecosystem make it simple to develop apps for Android.
AirWatch enables a secure kiosk device through AirWatch Launcher. Configure the device in single or multi-app mode, set restrictions, and customize wallpaper and icon layouts.
AirWatch allows users to securely share devices with multiuser management. Users are able to check out devices using corporate credentials and then receive appropriate apps and content specific to their role. Shared devices remain enrolled and under management during the check-out and check-in process, so devices are always secure, even when not in use.
AirWatch provides comprehensive mobility support for rugged devices running Android. Visit our Rugged Device Management solution page to learn more.
