AirWatch announces complete Android email management flexibility

Telecom Lead America: AirWatch announces complete Android email management flexibility with the AirWatch Android Email Container, as an enhancement to the AirWatch Mobile Email Management (MEM) solution.

The AirWatch Android Email Container supports over-the-air configuration of Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) email accounts for Android devices.

The AirWatch Android Email Container uses a FIPS-validated cryptographic module with advanced security, policy and configuration features.

John Marshall, president and CEO, AirWatch, said: “However, as many customers adopt wider BYOD strategies, they struggle to provide an email platform across all devices that meet security and usability requirements. As the largest EMM provider, the strength of our development team and global resources allows us to maintain a vendor-neutral strategy and integrate with all available email clients and develop innovative capabilities, such as the Android Email Container, to meet the customer demand.”

The AirWatch Android Email Container will be available as an optional add-on component to the AirWatch mobile device management solution. AirWatch’s MEM solution delivers comprehensive security for corporate email infrastructure including Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010 and cloud-based Gmail, Office365 and BPOS.


Recently, AirWatch announced support for Windows Embedded 8 Handheld devices and continued commitment to Windows Mobile 6.x and Windows CE. AirWatch says that since other solution providers discontinue support for Windows Mobile 6.x and CE, enterprises face higher prices and limited choices for MDM capabilities.
