Employees need anytime, anywhere access to corporate content to stay productive. Many employees are taking advantage of free file sharing services to access sensitive documents, putting your organization’s corporate data at risk. The proliferation of consumer mobility is driving the need for a simple and ubiquitous content collaboration solution.
AirWatch® Mobile Content Management enables secure mobile access to content anytime, anywhere. AirWatch Secure Content Locker™ protects your sensitive content in a corporate container and provides users with a central application to securely access the latest sales materials, board books or financial reports from their mobile devices.
IT administrators are responsible for ensuring the security of corporate content and protecting the enterprise against the increased risk posed by free file sharing services. With AirWatch, IT administrators are enabled with enterprise-grade security and data loss prevention capabilities to keep content secure.
Executives want to keep their mobile workforce productive, enabling them with the most up to date content and most effective collaboration tools. AirWatch provides executives with full visibility into content usage by device and by user. Effective and expiration dates along with version control ensure that users always have the latest content.
End users demand easy access to corporate content from multiple mobile devices and the ability to collaborate with others. AirWatch delivers anytime, anywhere access for end users with two-way synchronization across devices, along with sharing and editing capabilities within the AirWatch Secure Content Locker application.
Secure Content Locker enables management of enterprise content stored in the AirWatch Cloud or enterprise content repositories (like SharePoint) and network file shares.
Secure Content Locker enables management of user-generated content through personal folders in the application and self-service portal.
AirWatch provides flexible content storage options to fit the unique requirements of your enterprise. Content can be hosted in a public cloud, the AirWatch Cloud, enterprise content repositories or file shares, or a hybrid of cloud and on-premise options.
AirWatch supports cloud storage through the AirWatch Cloud and can integrate with cloud storage solutions like Amazon EC2 and cloud repositories including Office 365, SkyDrive and Google Drive.
Secure Content Locker integrates with on-premise repositories, including SharePoint, WebDav and network file servers. Integration with SharePoint enables secure access without a VPN connection on mobile devices.
Secure Content Locker can centralize content stored in different locations, whether in the cloud, on-premise or both. Users are able to view content stored in the cloud alongside repository folders.
End users are authenticated using AD/LDAP, Kerberos, token-based or certificate-based methods before gaining access to Secure Content Locker. All data and content sent to mobile devices is encrypted in-transit and at-rest with AES 256-bit, FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption. Access control lists can be used to assign content at the corporate, organization group and user level to ensure users only access the right content. Permissions are configurable for sharing, offline viewing, third-party app access, emailing and printing on a per document basis. If used in conjunction with Mobile Device Management (MDM), AirWatch can continuously monitor devices for compliance and revoke access for noncompliant devices.
Advanced data loss prevention is possible with restrictions and policies configurable by administrators. Available restrictions include offline viewing restrictions; preventing cut/copy/paste, printing and emailing; and ‘open in’ restrictions to prevent content from opening in third-party applications. Geofencing can further protect content by removing it from a device when the device leaves a defined area. For complete DLP across enterprise applications, Secure Content Locker can be utilized in conjunction with AirWatch Inbox and AirWatch Browser, as well as other application containers. Links clicked from Secure Content Locker can be made to open in AirWatch Browser, and email attachments can be required to open in Secure Content Locker.
The Secure Content Locker application is available for Android, Apple and Windows devices. The intuitive user interface provides easy navigation through smart views, folders and categories, along with search capabilities. On-demand downloads, setting download queue order and the ability to favorite content make it easy for users to find and access the content they need. Users can also capture photos and videos within Secure Content Locker using the device camera to keep images and videos secure.
The self-service portal enables users to add personal content to Secure Content Locker with a simple drag-and-drop. Users can manage personal folder content, move files from one folder to another and remove files. Content added by a user to a personal folders is available on all devices that the user accesses. Using personal folders, users can share files and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders.
AirWatch enables two-way synchronization of content from users’ desktops to devices via Secure Content Locker Sync. With Secure Content Locker Sync, user content added to a personal folder becomes available across devices. Synchronization can be manual and based on a scheduler, so content is always up-to-date.
With AirWatch, users can share files and folders with internal and external stakeholders. From the self-service portal, users can set restrictions for shared content to keep it secure.
Users create a unique link for the file they want to share from the self-service portal and set security restrictions (such as a passcode) for file access. Users can also set a maximum for days a file is available and number of downloads allowed.
Users can share folders with other internal users and assign various access privileges such as editor and reader. Users will automatically receive a notification email when a folder has been shared with them, and the folder will be available for them in the self-service portal.
Users with editing privileges to shared files and folders can update Microsoft Office documents and annotate PDFs in Secure Content Locker. Save annotations and changes locally on the device or sync back to original repository. PDF documents can be viewed in night mode to make documents easier to read in low light. Changes are synced to devices and immediately accessible. AirWatch also delivers built-in stamps and graphics, such as the ‘approved’ stamp, which can be added to documents to enable additional communication between teams. Custom stamps and images can be added.
Our web-based admin console provides administrators and content managers with the ability to manage content security, access rights and distribution. AirWatch’s role-based access allows administrators to configure appropriate access rights by organization group and user. Administrators can also manage distribution policies by requiring Wi-Fi only downloads; designating required content to download automatically and setting download priority levels.
Real-time content dashboards in the admin console enable a quick view of content inventory, at the organization, file or device levels. Administrators can select device details to see all content in Secure Content Locker on a particular device, and select content details to see which devices and users have a particular file downloaded.
All device events, such as content downloaded, and console events, such as an added content category, are recorded and viewable from the admin console. AirWatch provides a complete audit trail for admin and user activities. IT administrators can generate and export file and user activity reports, such as how many times a file has been opened, which users have downloaded a particular document, and more.
Custom themes and a seamless, branded experience are made possible with Secure Content Locker by utilizing custom CSS. AirWatch multitenancy allows different branding for various organization groups in your business.
The Secure Content Locker application and admin console are fully globalized with support for 17 languages. Our advanced multitenancy enables administrators to designate active language packs for an organization group or individual user. Users can also update language preferences in the self-service portal.
Secure Content Locker View enables secure access to enterprise content on smartphones and tablets, advanced data loss prevention features and administrative controls.
Secure Content Locker Collaborate includes all features in Secure Content Locker View, plus user content, photo and video capture within the app; file sharing, editing and annotation capabilities.
The comprehensive, unified code base of the AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management platform means all of our solutions are fully integrated and share a single architecture, enabling single sign on, multitenancy and enterprise integration.
