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.

Webroot SecureAnywhere

Webroot can be great if you have many employees using computers. Sensitive business information can be accessed by malicious threats online if your employees are not trained to avoid these problems. In this case, I think it's important to have software to protect you.If working with a smaller team (and not doing any sort of video production or other intensive software/applications) I can't see a need for anything like Webroot. Learning how to use the internet safely and protecting your file storage are things to be done on the cheap and with smarts.

Pros

  • Compliance policies are robust. One thing we have done is to keep our operating systems updated using the Airwatch compliance policies. We created a customized email from an Airwatch template and send notifications to users when they are not compliant.
  • Volume Purchase Program Integration allows you to purchase apps with a corporate credit card and push out licenses to authorized users.
  • Staging user allows minimal end user interaction. Only 2 inputs when we hand a corporate phone to an end user(device password & email password).
  • Secure Content Locker allows us to open and manage email attachments in a secure container.

Cons

  • The entire platform. It is riddled with bugs and horribly annoying to get fixed. During our upgrade planning meetings we would spend DAYS just reviewing their bug list to identify everything that would break within our environment.
  • The UI is completely inconsistent making it difficult to do the simplest of tasks
  • Their API would break from upgrade to upgrade causing major compatibility issues with our internal tools.
  • It requires a massive on prem server infrastructure. 300% bigger than our other MDM which was much more reliable.

  • Mobile security needs work, especially with Apple products.

Likelihood to Renew

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.

Webroot makes it easy to renew your subscription (as I already have done so for the past few years!) and I have always had no issues with their customer service. Great company, great people, and great product.

Usability

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

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

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

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

Alternatives Considered

I don't have much of an opinion about this as most other places I have worked at allowed me to access my email through a web client. I guess this app makes it a little more mobile friendly by putting in an app.

It works best of all of these for us. The others all interfered with our other computer programs updates.

Scalability

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

Ease of implementation across various devices is easy and efficient regardless of scale. Whether it is 5 devices or 500 the product continually proves its the best in its class.

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.

  • Pretty much handles everything on its own. Does not require input from user or admins.
  • Saves money/time not having to manually scan/monitor machines.
