Likelihood to Recommend

AirWatch

AirWatch is a great tool for large organizations that need to manage more than 100 devices. The product is capable of handling multiple platforms and is scalable to any size company.I would not recommend AirWatch to small companies, companies with minimal MDM needs or companies on a tight budget. It's the Rolls Royce of MDMs, it has all the bells and whistles and it's not inexpensive.

Hexnode MDM

Hexnode, is fast and simple to deploy, meets all the required needs for any company trying to manage, control and restrict devices. Still lacks some features that other competitors have, but they are on the road-map for future development (i.e. data management on IOS, and screen placement and design).

Pros

  • Assign profiles, restrictions, security controls, distribute apps and content automatically based on different organizational units.
  • Guarantee devices access to corporate infrastructure only if it is compliant with all security policies.

  • Device functions can be removed or limited
  • Fast Cloud based management.

Cons

  • Adding mobile devices and users.
  • Need to have Apple VPP setup in order to push out apps to phones.
  • Lots of customizable configurations. (It's a good thing but it can be daunting at first).

Likelihood to Renew

AirWatch7.0
Based on 1 answer
We've used it for 3 years and our contract is up later this year. We own the licenses, but we would have to either renew cloud services or bring the services in-house and install on servers here. We may want to see what's new in the marketplace that could be just as useful and cost effective.

Usability

AirWatch8.0
Based on 1 answer
It works well for our environment and what we're using it for. It actually does more than we're currently utilizing, but I believe our needs will change in the near future and we could utilize more features.

Reliability and Availability

AirWatch5.0
Based on 1 answer
Just in the past few weeks our staff has had several issues with the website. It is either taking a long time to load anything or we are not able to get in at all. This is very frustrating when you are trying to manage and enroll users. It was down 2 days in a row just this past week. Not good!

Performance

AirWatch5.0
Based on 1 answer
Went over the availability just a minute ago on the last rating. Don't use the reporting too much but will likely begin that soon. Integration with Active Directory doesn't seem to bog either system down.

Based on 1 answer
They're usually very good. I've talked to any number of techs from level one to level 3. They all seem pretty knowledgeable about the product and how to support it.

Have your organizational structure and heirarchy outlined. This helps when you are ready to create OU's and subs in AirWatch.

Alternatives Considered

The AirWatch mindset has greatly shifted from the early days and now they are all about making things work and being efficient. VMware has spent tons of time and money in moving AirWatch forward

Based on 1 answer
It is really scalable. They love to have more users as you pay by the license. They are great in this regard.
