AirWatch has incrementally built various systems and processes to manage all aspects of mobile, device email, content, laptop, browser and application management. It has made concerted efforts to build, integrate and perfect a complete, holistic enterprise mobility management platform. AirWatch delivers comprehensive, secure, scalable, reliable and cost-effective MDM solutions to customers across major industry verticals, including retail, financial services, government, education, transportation, and healthcare.

"Leading device manufacturers such as Samsung, Panasonic, and Nokia are taking advantage of AirWatch's successful product strategies to define and develop their next-generation mobile device management and OS strategies," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Vikrant Gandhi.

The company also recently acquired Motorola Solutions Mobility Service Platform (MSP) to extend advanced MDM capabilities to rugged and Windows Mobile devices, furthering its vision to help enterprise customers securely manage all types of mobile devices.

A strong focus on product innovation is the hallmark of AirWatch's competitive strategy. Over the past several months, the company has developed single sign-on for internal and external apps, the dual persona containerized AirWatch Workspace solution, enhanced multi-user/shared device features, application reputation scanning and mobile content management enhancements. The company now has 15 data centers across Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Germany, U.K., Spain, Canada, the U.S., Australia, India, and New Zealand, which delivers cutting-edge, cloud-based services to local and regional customers.

Other recent innovations include AirWatch Professional™ for small businesses, a growing ecosystem of approved third-party enterprise application developers, new patents for enterprise mobility and secure communication, and a wide range of technical enhancements to the AirWatch platform (additional capabilities for the AirWatch Browser, enhanced multi-user/shared device features, improved certificate management capabilities, and the AirWatch Hub customizable dashboard).

"AirWatch has successfully integrated the core MDM building blocks in a seamless and coherent manner to deliver comprehensive enterprise mobility management services," noted Gandhi. "The company has a dedicated usability team that constantly evaluates and improves the functionality of its solutions, thus ensuring that the user experience is not compromised at any point."

In addition to helping customers with corporate MDM, AirWatch also offers highly capable containerization solutions to manage the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend across regulated as well as non-regulated industries. The company supports original equipment manufacturer (OEM) containers (such as Samsung's native email), application-specific containers (such as email containers), and application-neutral containers (through App Wrapping), all of which deliver wider choices to customers who do not wish to include devices in a traditional MDM rollout.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
