AirWatch rolls out AppShield for mobile device management

Aimed at providing security and management capabilities, AppShield leverages the AirWatch SDK and App Wrangling capabilities.

Rounding out a batch of announcements from its AirWatch Connect event in Atlanta, AirWatch on Wednesday introduced the AirWatch AppShield.

Aimed at providing security and management capabilities, AppShield leverages the AirWatch SDK and App Wrangling capabilities.

As part of AirWatch AppShield, the AirWatch App Wrapping engine gives existing internal applications an extra level of security and management capabilities without requiring further development, which AirWatch says allows administrators to wrap applications from the admin console.

Also part of this week's product rollouts is an upgrade to AirWatch's Mac Management tool. New features include include application management, streamlined staging, interoperability with Apple’s Device Enrollment Program and new profile configurations.

"Our customers are making strategic investments to build applications both internally and through developers to drive employee engagement, collaboration and productivity," said John Marshall, SVP and GM of AirWatch by VMware. "The AirWatch platform provides organizations with comprehensive mobile application management capabilities through our SDK and App Wrapping capabilities, and today’s announcement for interoperability with the industry’s leading MADP providers demonstrates our broad ecosystem of partners that help customers deliver on their application initiatives."
