VMware AirWatch Review

Enables setting up groups with different deployment policies, but MBM/MCM could be better

What is our primary use case?

My customer is a Microsoft and Apple site, 99 percent of the system in Windows Servers, and the company gives every manager an iPad or iPad Pro (500-plus devices).

We deployed the MDM functionality of AirWatch to control all devices and MEM is the next step. We are struggling in MBM/MAM because all the applications are IE compatible.

How has it helped my organization?

The company used DEP to manage all devices previously. Now, with AirWatch (Workspace ONE Advanced) they can manage all devices and apps more easily. Among the most important improvements is the ability to set up different groups with different deployment policies.

What is most valuable?

MEM is valuable because all push emails can be monitored.

What needs improvement?

MBM/MCM could be improved. MBM can support specific versions of development tools. If VMware would let the customer know this more clearly, we would not need to waste time explaining this and delaying the project.

Also, the Content Locker cannot inherit permissions for the Windows Public Folder. If they could integrate with Microsoft on this point, it would be the perfect functionality.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
