VMware AirWatch

2018-10-07

While I still would not recommend On-Premises deployment, we got all the features we need with the Cloud version such as granular security control of mobile devices and Mac laptops, containerized email, application catalog for end users and we even were able to restrict access to a rooted devices in our environment.

Pros

We simply enrolled iOS, Android and Mac devices and it seemed to be really secure and reliable, as well as fast time to scale.

Cons

We faced some difficulties with Application management. It was not s easy to add Application to the store.

Solid MDM Solution

2019-04-12

Great product to secure your mobile end points.

Pros

Loved the ability to see which devices were out of compliance with policy and updates.

Cons

Deployment could have been easier. There is a large fee associated with startup that you don't see from other MDM.

Total Mobile Device Management

Pros

This is a product that allows you to take total control over enterprise data on mobile devices.

Cons

The product is being evolved into a much bigger vmware workspace one product offering that makes the airwatch functionality much more complex to access and dillutes some of the core features of airwatch.

Makes Managing Mobile Devices A Lot Easier

2018-03-20

Pros

We are an iPhone heavy workplace and being able to have a MDM (Mobile Device Management) that can control all our iPhones, push apps and policies, and be able to track devices is incredibly helpful.

Cons

The reason we moved to Intune was because of Airwatch's only real downside for an agency wanting to be cloud based, it had to have an on-premise server to communicate with.

Control over the mobile Infrastructure.

Pros

We can monitor the three main platforms, Apple, Android and MW 10 Mobile.

Cons

Not the cheapest, but I don't think any VMWare administrator has ever worried for the money, just saying... Nothing bad to say about this software.

Pros

Black listing applications on corporate devices is simple and effective. APIs are easy to work with to meet the company needs.

AirWatch much better than the compitition

2018-06-08

So, if the device has sensitive data and is lost or stolen we can clean it and the data will not be lost.

Pros

AirWatch is a great Mobile Device Management (MDM) system.

Cons

The price is a bit higher than we initially wanted to pay but the service is much better than the lower priced product.

Cons

Support is awful. Often times you will get the agent asking you obvious troubleshooting questions and typical unsure of run-around. Their CS is a Zendesk backend / Typical outsourced Frontend.
