One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Microsoft Intune and VMware AirWatch. People like you are trying to decide which one is best for their company. Can you help them out? Which of these two solutions would you recommend for Mobile Device Management? Why?Are you using a different Mobile Device Management solution? Do you recommend it? Thanks for helping your peers make the best decision! --Rhea

Faisal K HanMarket leader in MDM is IBM MaaS 360 in terms of maturity and security but depending upon your enterprise preference you can go with InTune or Airwatch. Further to above comments, it depends upon whats your BYOD policy and what types of devices and OS you have to cater with. Additionally, It further depends if there is an ABW (activity-based working) need to fulfill. Microsoft SCCM, Apple JAMF, IBM MaaS 360 or VM Airwatch choice depends upon your technology model / enterprise architecture.

Keith SchultheissThe differences are very close, Intune cannot push an app to a device. It does it within 8 hours. Some clients need new app versions and upgrades pushed so AirWatch is better. The AirWatch portal is more polished than Intune but that’s more of a tech’s issue and not the customers.

Josh OlsonIt depends on the level of sophistication of your org. If all you are doing is securing mobile email, both tools can help. If you are sophisticated and looking to “move the needle” on productivity gains and lower total cost of ownership, Vmware AirWatch, is leader. You can deliver any app on any device from any cloud to any user type - all with end to end security. PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Chromebook - all managed in Workspace ONE. It’s a platform that focuses on the user identity and user experience while maintaining security. It is next gen. Not all companies are innovators and can handle change. Then again, legacy companies that don’t reinvent themselves from time to time can go extinct.

Hello, We've been using Parallels 2X MDM for a number of years to track/monitor our mobile driver devices.  As it's going end of life, we need a replacement - something cost effective and that can grow as we grow and ideally something that can also monitor or transport fleet.What do you recommend? Thanks,Enda

Nowadays there are so many Mobile Device Management tools available on the market. So why should I choose VMware AirWatch rather than SOTI MobiControl?
