AirWatch Now Offering Independent MAM
AirWatch, is now offering standalone mobile application management (MAM) and administrative flexibility for the complete range of mobile device ownership models, including corporate dedicated or shared devices with full management, personal devices with full management, and now, personal devices with standalone application management.
The AirWatch app wrapping engine allows developers to add proprietary AirWatch security features to internal apps without writing any additional source code. With injected code, developers benefit by not spending time coding for additional features. The AirWatch wrapping engine allows for forced authentication, enforcement of passwords, compromised device detection, prevention of copy/paste from the app and disablement of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and camera.
Additionally, the solution allows IT administrators to manage internal, public and purchased apps across employee, corporate or shared devices in organizations and gives developers multiple options to manage internally developed apps by using advanced security and management capabilities available through the AirWatch Software Development Kit (SDK).
The SDK provides developers with additional app management functionality, all of which can be controlled from the AirWatch console: seamless LDAP/AD user authentication, compromised status and jailbreak detection, certificate provisioning, geofencing, custom application branding, reporting and analytics, application health and diagnostics, dynamic server-side configuration and provisioning of apps, and defining custom settings for apps.
IT/admins benefit from the use of internal, enterprise app catalogs to recommend public apps, push apps directly to devices, inform employees of useful apps and provision specific apps, based on organizational role.
By building and managing internal mobile apps, enterprises can provide convenience and flexibility to their associates, especially in BYOD management scenarios. For example, aviation companies are building unique apps to allow collaboration among cabin crews on preferred routes and schedules, and retailers are building apps to allow employees to bid on preferred work shifts.
