Sophos Mobile

Sophos Mobile Control is greatly welcome when corporate networks allow BYOD on the office, and on the wireless networks around it. It allows you to control what the users are doing, and on this kind of explanation that I'm doing, perhaps EVERY company is suited for this kind of example. Nowadays the same user that has access to our corporate network is allowed to access multiple apps, that the IT security department isn't aware of. To have visibility is one of the most important things among security issues.

Workspace ONE Powered by 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.

Pros

  • Easy deployment.
  • We are on next generation type of tools to be able to protect corporate data.
  • Allows the management IT group to be able to control the probable theft of information.

  • Enrollment is a snap with many different options. This allows organizations with corporately owned or BYOD programs to bring devices under management in a flexible and scalable solution.
  • Deployment of apps-AirWatch makes deploying apps across your organization simple a quick.
  • AirWatch is usually close to "Zero Day" ready with major hardware manufacturers updated features. Many of the Android and iOS updated features are incorporated into the environments almost as soon as they are released.
  • AirWatch has great customer service. This was not always the case but as the company has grown over the last year in particular, I have been receiving better customer service compared to other MDMs.

Cons

  • The platform was developed many years ago, a fresher look (even for the cloud-based console) would be appreciated.
  • The ability to control mail platforms other than MS Exchange.
  • The ability to control more features on iOS (knowing how the iOS Platform is at the moment).

  • Out-of-the-box enrollment of devices. Even though Android already has it, is only supported by a specific OEM.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

Alternatives Considered

Personally, haven't seen any other MDM on the market, but I feel since Sophos is greatly known to have easy to use products, that the others may not be as easy to use as Sophos Mobile Control. One of the key factors for organizations to choose Sophos Mobile Control and Security is because the Android OS (most attacked OS on the planet) is protected with award-winning antivirus and anti malware from Sophos. We have seen as advisors, how unprotected customers, get huge telecom bills because of the lack of security, since they think that an Android OS is healthy enough... big mistake. One simple thing I always tell friends, family and customers, protect your Android device with Sophos Security (it's free for home users).

AirWatch is the top dog when it comes to Mobile Device Management is my opinion. The granularity of the controls in the console, the vast amount of features available to control Android devices, and their custom application wrapping features are top notch. I think all of the other MDM providers are playing catch-up, and some are moving quickly. For me, the security controls AirWatch has in-place for the web console is one of the biggest advantages they have over their competitors

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

  • We invest and make the ROI very quickly seen, when management on any company sees what they were missing on possible data breaches.
  • As a positive impact, it allows end users to quickly catch the true meaning for "Corporate Data".
  • A negative impact, sometimes is that the end user feels as it's being followed all around, which depending on the profile, it's a must on a device with corporate data access and/or storage.
Juan Carlos Sanchez Pignalosa profile photo
  • Added a significant cost to the company.
  • Adds that ability to have control rather than give the employee control.
  • Takes away some of the risk that could happen if a device were stolen or a disgruntled employee became angry.
