Several new products and functionality were announced for the coming months. We’re most excited about Airwatch Workspace. This new offering from Airwatch is a containerized solution for all enterprise data including email, applications, content and browsing available in Airwatch 6.5 and it creates a consistent end user experience across mobile platforms. Enterprises implementing Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives can utilize Workspace to keep corporate data secure within applications, while allowing the user to maintain complete control of their personally-owned device. With single sign-on capabilities for EMM and Workspace deployments, organizations can offer a seamless user experience between managed applications, while controlling user access to those applications.
