Empower Employees with Secure BYOD

With the consumerization of mobility, many enterprises are turning to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs, or a hybrid approach including corporate and employee-owned devices. By supporting these initiatives, enterprises allow employees access to corporate resources from anywhere, increasing productivity and driving employee satisfaction. Securing employee-owned devices and supporting different mobile platforms, however, can create complex issues for IT departments.

VMware AirWatch® enables unprecedented device choice and supports the device ownership models you choose without compromising the security and management of your mobile fleet. AirWatch provides a flexible model for asset management, policy enforcement, and for distributing profiles, apps and content, based on device ownership type.

BYOD Policy

Device Choice

AirWatch supports all major mobile platforms, allowing you to implement a flexible BYOD program. Your employees can choose from the latest makes and models for their smartphones, tablets and laptops. Define devices eligible for enrollment with custom device whitelists and blacklists.

Access to Corporate Resources

AirWatch enables secure access to enterprise resources from employee-owned devices. Users are authenticated through a simple enrollment process with a consistent agent-based flow for major platforms. Once authenticated, profiles, applications and content are configured automatically based on user and device ownership type. Provide employees connections to intranet sites and corporate content, apps, Wi-Fi, VPN and more from their mobile devices by pushing profiles automatically or on-demand. AirWatch also 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.

BYOD Privacy

Privacy Concerns

AirWatch enables companies to separate corporate and personal data on devices through customizable privacy policies based on device ownership type. Configure policies to prevent data collection from personal email, content or applications on an employee-owned device. GPS location, personal user information and telecom data can also remain private, and employee-owned devices can be protected from a full device wipe or remote control. AirWatch also allows businesses to mitigate risks that are presented when employee-owned devices are accessing corporate resources. With custom Terms of Use (TOU) agreements based on user role, organization group and device platform, users can be informed about data that will be captured and what they are allowed to do with the device.

Security and Compliance

Corporations need to enable employee devices in the enterprise without sacrificing the security requirements of IT. With VMware AirWatch Container®, provide enterprise-grade security for corporate resources and applications that are delivered to a device while preserving the separation of corporate and personal data. Compartmentalize and manage enterprise applications and data without having to manage the entire device. AirWatch container solutions are designed to work together to deliver a seamless user experience with single sign on capabilities and cross-container integration.

Removing Corporate Resources

Removing Corporate Resources

Administrators can remove access to corporate email, Wi-Fi and VPN when an end user un-enrolls or leaves the company. Remove internal apps and corporate content from devices upon end user departure. Finally, perform an enterprise wipe without effecting personal content on the device.
