VMware banks on AirWatch

VMware India has come up with certification around AirWatch, an enterprise mobility management (EMM) software, using local research while getting into mobility management with government, ecommerce companies and enterprises.

In an interaction with DH, VMware India Managing Director Arun Parameswaran said recent research data states that 97% of Indians use Android devices manufactured in unknown destinations in Asia.

“So security is a concern when we get into the device management and application management of these devices. Availing our Workspace One in conjunction with VMware AirWatch will help organisations secure enterprise data and infrastructure across cloud and on premise,” he said.

AirWatch, an Atlanta-based company founded in 2003 that provides EMM software and standalone management systems for content, applications and email, was acquired by VMWare in 2006 to become a platform beyond core mobile device management (MDM).

Parameswaran said AirWatch engineering facility in Bengaluru helps device manufacturers certify them in India.

Workspace One offering from VMware provides a seamless unified experience for all users to access various application types from multiple device platforms and offers visibility into what users can access and whether sensitive data could be at risk.

“Workspace One also optimises authentication based on device type; for example, it uses platform- specific adapters to authenticate users on Apple iOS and Google Android devices,” he said.

 VMware employs around 3,000 people in Bengaluru across engineering in all different functions.Parameswaran said both the Centre and the state government provide a huge opportunity for VMware.
