Overall Satisfaction with XenMobile

We use XenMobile across our entire organization. This allows us to stop buying separate company managed cell phones for remote access, allows us secure management of email, access to internal resources, as well as enabling secure file share via share file. Overall, it's been a very worthwhile investment in terms of cost/value.
  • Secure email container - easily manage on/off boarding of remote employee access
  • Secure access to internal resources
  • Secure file share
  • Free / Busy functionality would be great
  • Interface changes more than I'd like
  • Better calendaring interface - more like Outlook would be nice.
  • Specific ROI was on us avoiding purchasing company managed cell phones - one of the most important drivers
  • Makes on boarding, and especially offboarding remote users a heck of a lot easier w/the ability to wipe the container, even if not connected (via time setting)
  • Easy access to internal resources - no need for separate vpn, etc...
We couldn't get AirWatch to work for us, installation on the devices was much too complex, and support was lacking. I've heard other companies didn't have as much of an issue, but we certainly did. Mobile Iron was evaluated at the surface, but we never brought it in for a formal eval due to time constraints.
Specifically avoid buying company managed cell phones - this could pay for itself in a year or two. Enable BYOD - very effective for iPad users and others using unmanaged endpoints. Securely managing company IP vis a vie remote users - much easier to on and offboard access. Also a great way to securely share files.
