AirWatch provides comprehensive enterprise mobility management solutions for Mac OS laptops. With AirWatch, you can secure all devices enrolled in your enterprise, including smartphones, tablets and laptops, and implement consistent corporate policies across your entire deployment from the admin console. AirWatch supports Mac OS versions 10.7 (Lion), 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and 10.9 (Mavericks), and all devices running those operating system versions, including MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, iMac and Mac Pro.
AirWatch’s simple enrollment process for Mac users is web-based and consistent with mobile device enrollment, and both administrators and end users are able to enroll devices. Users must be authenticated and Macs must meet enrollment requirements to ensure your corporate security prerequisites are met. Once enrolled, the settings, applications and restrictions you provisioned deploy to Macs automatically.
Standardize configurations across laptops for scalable distribution with imaging capabilities. Configure profiles and products to setup corporate networks, security policies, applications and email accounts. With AirWatch, you can deploy the same configuration to multiple devices, create a dynamic configuration based on the user role and update any configuration over-the-air.
Use the AirWatch agent on laptops to communicate important messages to users and provide up-to-date information on the status of their device. The AirWatch Agent enables users to view their compliance status, Wi-Fi, VPN and admin console connection.
Authenticate users during enrollment and at configurable checkpoints before gaining access to corporate resources, apps and content. Passcode policies, feature restrictions and full disk encryption help secure corporate content. Gatekeeper settings prevent malicious app downloads and diagnostic reporting to Apple. You can also limit Mac usage to certain days and enforce usage curfews with parental control profiles.
Create profiles to provision security policies, access to corporate accounts and configure laptop settings. Set passcode and encryption requirements, configure access to Wi-Fi and VPN accounts, prevent software updates, and customize user experiences with dock and wallpaper settings. Administrators can also utilize a directory profile to enable access for network users with corporate credentials. Profiles can be time-based and configured to deploy automatically or on-demand.
Provision custom products to distribute apps, create and modify files, run scripts and perform commands. Products can be configured to deploy automatically during enrollment or on-demand. Set deployment rules based on time of day, network state or power state of the device.
Enable Mobile Content Management from users’ desktops with Secure Content Locker Sync™. SCL Sync enables two-way synchronization of content from laptops to devices. When a user edits a document, SCL Sync automatically updates the file in that user’s personal content folder in Secure Content Locker™. The updated version can be accessed on mobile devices by that user and any other users the document is shared with. Synchronization is based on a scheduler and real-time folder changes for personal and shared content, so users’ content is always up-to-date.
Enable over-the-air management, commands and monitoring for Macs. From the admin console, you can manage Macs by querying for device details, locking devices and prompting users to enter a password or PIN, revoking access to corporate resources, and performing an enterprise or full device wipe. The admin console allows you to view all connected devices in the enterprise in real-time through interactive dashboards.
Allow employees to bring their own laptops to work, without sacrificing corporate policy enforcement and security. Push all the software, applications and security features that your users need, without traditional imaging. AirWatch enables streamlined products that don’t need to be customized for different models, so you can deploy configurations by user or group, rather than device model. To limit corporate access to specific applications, utilize per-app VPN capabilities. The self-service portal empowers users with information on their laptop and the ability to perform remote commands.
