On the Radar: VMware AirWatch

VMware AirWatch provides a platform of Enterprise Mobility Management tools that enable organisations to deploy, configure, and manage mobile devices, the apps installed on them, and the content they use. A cornerstone of its management suite is AirWatch Content Locker, which offers secure content management and collaboration capabilities geared towards mobile workstyles.


AirWatch is based in Atlanta, GA with four further offices across North America, and offices in the UK, India, Hong Kong, Australia, and Singapore. VMware (AirWatch’s parent company) is headquartered in Palo Alto, CA.

What does it do?

VMware AirWatch provides a platform of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) tools that enable organisations to deploy, configure, secure, and manage their workforce’s mobile devices, apps and content.

Though touching on some of the wider elements of EMM in context, this report focuses primarily on AirWatch Content Locker, the company’s mobile content collaboration tool. AirWatch Content Locker provides secure mobile access to corporate content by integrating with a raft of ECM products (such as Alfresco, Box, Dropbox, EMC Documentum, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft OneDrive, OpenText, Oracle WebCenter Content, IBM FileNet Content Manager, and SAP HANA Cloud Document Service) and providing secure access to content on a mobile device through its corporate container. Any of AirWatch’s supported business applications can consume and render content from any of its supported (30+) repositories, with access mediated via the Content Locker. Content Locker integrates with VMware Boxer (and AirWatch Inbox) and VMware Socialcast out of the box. Business applications can also share files if whitelisted by IT.
