AirWatch

Best used as mobile management for cell phones and tablets. Great for sending the device directly to the user and have them set it up. Gain back valuable time for your IT department. If there are a lot of mobile users you can track the location of some of the devices. Lots of location based settings as well. Such as geofencing.It has the ability to manage PCs but I would use another appliance such as Dell Kace. Wouldn't use it in small deployments.

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

  • AirWatch has strong compatibility with IOS devices and we are able to perform most desired management functions of the devices for staging, reporting, and device management.
  • AirWatch allows us to easily stage devices for multiple people and saves us time in our setup of these devices.
  • Airwatch allows us to easily separate users and groups out to allow for multiple roles to be assigned to devices. This allows us to manage the needs of different branch locations and companies because one size does not fit all, we utilize different profiles as needed to provide the versatility and needs of those users.

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.

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.

Implementation

Based on 2 answers
Have your organizational structure and heirarchy outlined. This helps when you are ready to create OU's and subs in AirWatch.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at Good Technologies and Mobile Iron. At the time Good Technologies was cost prohibitive and on initial demo did not appear to be as intuitive as we would've liked. We did a complete trial of MobileIron and it offered the same features as AirWatch but also more which we knew we wouldn't take advantage of. AirWatch was the simplest to implement and use and still offered us a robust feature set. AirWatch can be completely internal hosted on your own servers or it can be a Saas which offers additional cost savings.

Scalability

AirWatch10.0
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.

Return on Investment

  • Fast deployment to end users
  • Fast initial setup and implementation
  • Increased efficiency as it allowed users to use their own devices
  • Lowered our internal costs because we don't need to buy devices for everyone
  • Allowed us to eliminate BES which saved us licensing costs and allowed us to decommission a server.

  • Has helped us reduce lost devices and device lockouts.
