Today, VMware announced a new version of the Mobile Device Management Suite called AirWatch Express. AirWatch Express is a more admin-friendly, less complicated version of AirWatch that mainly focusses on SMB and Telco customers.
AirWatch Express will be available for only $2,50 per User per Month and contains a couple of new cool features that are hopefully coming to the normal AirWatch Suite as well.
The first thing that is new, is a simplified console. And it’s simplified for a couple of reasons. First of all, AirWatch Express has less functionality. Second of all, blueprints are introduced which consolidates a lot of functionality.
Setting up AirWatch is quite some work. Although it has a great wizard that helps you started and configure everything, the wizard has been greatly simplified in AirWatch Express:
A new wizard-based feature that let’s you configure a new use case in AirWatch by answering questions. Stuff like the type of applications you would like to add and for what types of devices and which users. In a simple overview you are able to select policies for multiple devices, which saves you a lot of time and makes managing mobile devices a lot easier.
As you can see in the above screenshots, setting up AirWatch Express is very easy which could assist less-technical administrators in setting up a Mobile Device Management solutions in just little time.
AirWatch Express is directly available via http://airwatchexpress.com and a free month by registering for a trial license is available as well.
Great work AirWatch!
