AirWatch vs MobileIron in our news:

2015. VMware acquired Boxer email app to fold it into AirWatch enterprise mobile solution



VMware (that will be soon part of Dell) announced plans to purchase email management app Boxer. The company will fold Boxer into AirWatch, the enterprise mobility management company it purchased 2014 for $1.5 billion. The idea behind that purchase was to provide security when employees are working on mobile devices outside of the office. Boxer takes that mission a step further by giving companies an email management solution that integrates well with other cloud applications like Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Gmail, Salesforce and Outlook, among others. It is taking AirWatch from the realm of simply managing mobility to actually providing one of its own applications, and a popular one at that.


2015. MobileIron introduced new Content Security Service for BYOD world



MobileIron has introduced new Content Security Service (CSS) that provides IT with a cloud security umbrella to set document protections across a variety of services, even when employees save documents to a personal account. It brings a level of control at the document level where IT administrators can set whatever document security they wish, regardless of the service, thereby separating security controls from the storage service. IT sets security levels in a control panel and decides which services to include. Out of the box (so to speak), it will support Dropbox and Box. The security works on a number of levels. First of all, it offers encryption and key management. Next, it provides basic data loss prevention (DLP) with remote wiping, document expiration, controls for saving and sharing and so forth. It also offers an audit trail for compliance purposes. Finally, it lets you share encrypted files in-house with teams and other employees.
