AirWatch, a provider of enterprise-grade Mobile Device and Smartphone Management (MDM) software, and NitroDesk, developers of a leading Exchange ActiveSync-based e-mail solution for Android smartphones and tablets, announce the integration of AirWatch and NitroDesk’s TouchDown. With this integration, corporate IT can securely deploy, monitor, manage and support large fleets of Android devices across their enterprise.
Designed especially for organizations with a growing population of Android-powered, employee-owned devices, the integrated AirWatch and TouchDown solution extends the reach of AirWatch’s industry-leading MDM functionality into the Email subsystem, providing a safe, secure mobile environment for corporate email, calendar, contacts and tasks running on ActiveSync-supported servers. This integrated solution lets corporate IT enable and enforce security policies, prevent the loss of sensitive corporate data, and monitor for internal and external compliance. Providing a secure email environment for Android devices is particularly important in industry verticals with significant governmental and industry regulations, including healthcare, financial services and retail.
AirWatch’s enterprise-grade mobile device management solution is available in three delivery options: Software as a Service (SaaS), a dedicated software appliance and software deployed on premise behind a corporate firewall, which can be fully virtualized and provides high availability. The solution’s delivery options allow for the flexibility to transition easily across the different models.
AirWatch’s design simplifies enterprise mobility for companies managing less than 50 devices to large, multi-national enterprises requiring a single, integrated management console (from a single instance of the software) to not only manage their enterprise-wide mobility initiatives and policies, but also to manage the specific needs and challenges within each division and country.
