What do you think of VMware AirWatch?

What is our primary use case?

We currently have 50-100 employees, and are growing towards 100 employees. We use some of our devices quite confidentially, and we use AirWatch to protect those devices. We want to separate personal data, and the company data because our employees are using their personal smart phone to access our email. It is just for data the email.

I don't have to worry anymore about my data after I used the EMM.

What needs improvement?

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

Yes, this product is stable.
