AirWatch Introduces AirWatch Inbox for a Secure, Consistent and Seamless Email Experience Across Mobile Platforms

AirWatch®, the largest Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) provider, announces the launch of AirWatch Inbox as part of its Mobile Email Management (MEM) suite, which includes secure corporate email access through the native client on Apple, Android and Windows devices and support of third-party email clients. AirWatch Inbox is a containerized email client with military-grade security, advanced functionality and a seamless, native end-user experience that allows for quick access to corporate email, calendar and contacts.

Access to mobile email is essential for employees who need to work on the go, but corporate email often contains sensitive data and documents. Companies need to ensure their mobile email strategy keeps data secure while providing an intuitive experience for end users. AirWatch MEM offers enterprises the flexibility to configure AirWatch Inbox, native email or third-party email clients on an employee-owned or corporate-owned device based on the deployment strategy that best fits business and security requirements. AirWatch Inbox is available on Apple iOS and Android devices at $1 per device per month with maintenance included, or a one-time fee of $20 per device with an annual maintenance fee of $4 per device.

Ideal for highly regulated deployments and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs, AirWatch Inbox can be deployed as a managed application or within the dual persona AirWatch Workspace containerized solution. AirWatch Inbox features data encryption in-transit and at rest, enforcement policies around bandwidth, sync control and an independent passcode. AirWatch provides additional layers of security through advanced certificate integration and multi-factor authentication. Email accounts can be automatically provisioned based on defined security policies, and administrators can enforce access control policies. Users can view and modify email, calendar and contacts in the AirWatch Inbox.

AirWatch Inbox joins the company’s industry-leading EMM platform, which also includes AirWatch Workspace, AirWatch Browser and Secure Content Locker™, a content management and collaboration solution. These applications work together to enable employees to work faster and more efficiently, including single sign-on capabilities between applications. Used together, these solutions allow employees to read emails using the email client, open applications securely with Secure Content Locker and view Web pages securely in AirWatch Browser. AirWatch Inbox also supports 16 languages and can easily be changed by IT administrators and end users.

“We continue to expand our platform to provide enterprises with the most flexibility so they can deploy native email, AirWatch Inbox or third-party email clients based on the business’s or user’s specific security requirements,” said John Marshall, president and CEO, AirWatch. “We developed AirWatch Inbox to have an intuitive end-user experience to increase employee adoption but with the security capabilities to ensure organizations can protect sensitive corporate information.”

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
