Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)


A recent study conducted by an AirWatch partner found that 40 percent of workers use personal devices to access business applications and resources. With the consumerization of enterprise mobility, many enterprises are turning to “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) models or a hybrid of corporate and employee-owned programs.

By implementing a BYOD program, or a hybrid of corporate- and employee-owned programs, enterprises can allow employees access to corporate resources and ensure that their data is protected and secure. AirWatch provides unprecedented choices over the types of devices you deploy and the device ownership models, without compromising the security and management of your mobile fleet. AirWatch provides a flexible model for asset management, policy enforcement and distribution of profiles and apps based on device ownership.

Enable Device Choice

AirWatch supports all major mobile platforms, allowing you to implement a flexible BYOD program. Allow your employees to choose from the latest makes and models for their smartphones, tablets and laptops. Control the devices that are able to enroll in your environment with device whitelists and blacklists.

Enroll Devices Easily

With AirWatch, your employees can easily enroll their employee-owned devices without help from IT. Users designate the device as employee-owned, and all users are authenticated via AD/LDAP integration. Profiles, applications and content configure automatically based on the user and device ownership type. Limit the number of employee-owned devices enrolled by setting a maximum number of devices allowed per user. Enable employee-owned devices with access to corporate email, VPN and Wi-Fi networks.

Mitigate Business Risks

AirWatch allows you to avoid the business risks that are presented when employee-owned devices are allowed access to corporate content. Customize a Terms of Use agreement to inform users about the data that will be captured and what they are allowed to do with the device, and require users to accept when they enroll a device. Track who has agreed to the Terms of Use, generate reports on compliance, support multi-lingual agreements and update the Terms of Use agreement at any time. Assign and enforce agreements based on user role, ownership type, device platform and group membership.

Protect Employee Privacy

With AirWatch, you can separate corporate and personal data on devices and customize privacy policies based on device ownership. Configure policies so that data is not collected from personal email, content or applications on an employee-owned device. Use policies to prevent collection of GPS location, personal user information and telecom data.
