AirWatch has announced complete Android email management flexibility with the AirWatch Android Email Container, as an enhancement to the AirWatch Mobile Email Management (MEM) solution. The AirWatch Android Email Container supports over-the-air configuration of Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) email accounts for Android devices.
Many mobile operating systems, OEMs or third-party solutions, such as NitroDesk Touchdown, may already offer best-in-class email clients, standard security and native encryption on the device, which could provide the best solution for AirWatch clients with limited device variability. However, companies often struggle with device proliferation and variation across email clients as they expand their mobile deployments and adopt BYOD. In these scenarios, companies require flexible email options to balance end-user security, usability and support.
“We recognize that many OS, OEMs and third-party solutions have best in class email security capabilities already built into the core of their technology,” said John Marshall, president and CEO, AirWatch. “However, as many customers adopt wider BYOD strategies, they struggle providing an email platform across all devices that meet security and usability requirements. As the largest EMM provider, the strength of our development team and global resources allows us to maintain a vendor-neutral strategy and integrate with all available email clients and develop innovative capabilities, such as the Android Email Container, to meet the customer demand.”
