With the consumerization of enterprise mobility, many enterprises are turning to “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) models or a hybrid of corporate devices and employee-owned programs. By implementing a BYOD program, or a hybrid of corporate- and employee-owned programs, enterprises allow employees access to corporate resources from anywhere, increasing productivity and driving employee satisfaction. Securing BYOD programs and supporting different mobile platforms can create complex issues for IT departments and become costly for businesses to maintain.
AirWatch enables unprecedented choices over the types of devices you deploy and the device ownership models you support, without compromising the security and management of your mobile fleet. AirWatch provides a flexible model for asset management, policy enforcement and distribution of profiles and apps based on device ownership.
AirWatch supports all major mobile platforms, allowing you to implement a flexible BYOD program. Allow your employees to choose from the latest makes and models for their smartphones, tablets and laptops. Define devices eligible for enrollment with customized device whitelists and blacklists established in the AirWatch console.
AirWatch’s simple enrollment process for end-users provides a consistent agent-based flow for major platforms. Users are able to navigate to a single URL, and once a device is designated as employee-owned, users are authenticated via AD/LDAP integration. Profiles, applications and content configure automatically based on the user and device ownership type. Limit the number of employee-owned devices enrolled by setting a maximum number of devices allowed per user.
AirWatch enables enterprises to ensure employee-owned devices have secure access to enterprise resources and accounts. Provide employees the ability to connect to enterprise Wi-Fi and VPN networks from their mobile devices by pushing profiles to devices automatically or on-demand. Administrators are able to set BYOD policies, push profiles and recommended apps, and configure custom access to corporate content specific to employee-owned devices through the AirWatch console.
AirWatch enables companies to separate corporate and personal data on devices through customizable privacy policies based on device ownership. Configure policies to prevent data collection from personal email, content or applications on an employee-owned device. Policies can also be configured to not collect GPS location, personal user information and telecom data. Privacy policies protect personal devices from a full device wipe or remote control.
AirWatch empowers your employees and reduces the burden on IT with our self-service portal. From the portal, employees can enroll additional devices, view detailed device information and perform remote actions. Users can see installed profiles and applications, view GPS location, query the device, and clear passcodes. Users can also make requests for apps, profiles and technical support through the portal.
