Mobile applications are changing the way your employees work. Today’s employees demand mobile applications that connect them to enterprise resources, increase their productivity and promote collaboration with colleagues. Smart enterprises empower their employees with company-approved public and custom-built internal applications.
The AirWatch Mobile Application Management (MAM) solution addresses the challenge of acquiring, distributing, securing, and tracking mobile applications. Easily manage internal, public and purchased apps across corporate-owned, corporate-shared and employee-owned devices from one central console.
AirWatch enables organizations to manage applications throughout the entire app lifecycle from purchasing or developing the app, ensuring security, distributing to users and tracking deployment. Administrators are able to view public and internal applications, versions, and more from a central console.
From the AirWatch console, view detailed app information including:
AirWatch integration with the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) allows you purchase apps, iBooks and custom B2B apps in bulk using the Apple VPP Portal. From the AirWatch console, administrators can allocate and distribute redemption codes to users and track licenses purchased, redeemed and remaining.
For organizations looking to build custom, internal applications, AirWatch offers our Software Development Kit (SDK). The AirWatch SDK enables you to take advantage of the advanced AirWatch security features and embed them into your custom business applications.
AirWatch gives administrators ultimate application security with the ability to create app whitelists, blacklists and compliance policies. Restrict access to pre-installed applications on a device, such as Bluetooth or camera, and disable access to public app stores. Prevent data loss through user authentication, data encryption and restricting data backup outside of the application. With AirWatch App Wrapping, administrators can add AirWatch security features to existing applications. AirWatch can be configured to automatically uninstall apps when a user un-enrolls or when a device is compromised.
When a user enrolls their device into AirWatch, configure required applications to download automatically. AirWatch enables administrators to install, update and remove managed apps over-the-air. Deploy multiple versions of the same app (including beta), assign different versions to different groups and allow devices to ‘roll back’ to a previous version. Administrators can send direct download links for applications and custom messages to alert users of new and updated apps.
AirWatch App Catalog provides a central place for users to view, browse, search, install and update public, internal, recommended and web applications. The custom-brandable App Catalog supports multiple languages and an easy to use HTML5 interface. Users are authenticated via basic, directory services, SAML or token-based methods before gaining access to the catalog. Within the App Catalog, apps are organized into custom categories and featured applications can be highlighted in a banner advertisement. The App Catalog integrates with public app stores and third-party file shares.
With AirWatch, end users can rate and review both public and internal applications. Comments and ratings are visible to other users and administrators in the App Catalog. If an application crashes, AirWatch captures the crash log and automatically sends it to app developers for detailed diagnostics (AirWatch SDK).
AirWatch offers flexibile Mobile Application Management (MAM) deployment options for enterprises with BYOD programs. Enterprises can deploy MAM with MDM, as a stand-alone solution, or a hybrid of different deployments for different device ownership types. Apps can be distributed based on device ownership, and administrators can configure privacy policies that do not collect personal data or app lists from employee-ownded devices.
AirWatch enables intuitive app management with advanced administrative control features. Leverage AirWatch multi-tenancy to delegate app management to different administrators and ensure employees only have access to the apps they need with role-based access. Integration with Mobile Device Management allows for additional controls at the device level, including device and enterprise wipe.
AirWatch allows you to control app costs by setting control policies for both corporate- and employee-owned devices and defining reimbursable and non-reimbursable apps. Volume Purchase Program (VPP) integration allows administrators to monitor licenses purchased, deploy licenses either as needed or in bulk, track user redemption and associate costs to different departments.
Administrators can track applications and data in AirWatch, including:
All device and console events are recorded and viewable from the AirWatch console. Administrators can configure logging levels for devices and the console, and filter events by severity level, category or module when looking at recorded events.
Application dashboards give administrators a quick overview of all internal, public and purchased applications deployed across the organization and at an individual device level. View application inventory, versions, status, ratings and more. Dashboards also give administrators visibility into the number of users that have installed an app versus how many were assigned the app.
AirWatch enhanced analytics and reporting allows you to create and export application reports by user, device or group. View entire app inventory including internal, public and purchased applications and track application versions and update history. Examples of custom .CSV reports includes app verification, device app summary, device app details, non-whitelisted apps, blacklisted apps, app cost by user, and more.
