AirWatch is widely recognized as the leading platform for enterprise mobility and has become the preferred choice of global businesses when it comes to centrally managing device fleets.

More recently, Wandera has also emerged as the leading way for these organizations to protect their mobile estates at a data level, and to power their Data Management programs.

The difference

Wandera and AirWatch are solutions to different mobility challenges, and can each be used to securely manage device fleets, with AirWatch operating on the device and through the application infrastructure, and Wandera through its leading web gateway for mobile architecture.

Better together

Wandera has been designed to work alongside AirWatch, integrating the strengths of multi-level visibility with a sophisticated array of tools to control and adjust devices.

With the combined power of both technologies, new insights on the security and status of every device can be surfaced at the device, application or data level. These insights can then be responded to using the functionality of either platform.

Integration Example 1

Insights gathered by Wandera are responded to by action in AirWatch

Wandera detects:
Hacker is attempting a man-in-the-middle attack
AirWatch action:
Restrict compromised devices, block network access or selectively wipe corporate data
Integration Example 2

Information gathered by AirWatch informs new policy in Wandera

AirWatch detects:
Rogue profile configuration
Wandera action:
Alerts admins and end users. Blocks relevant traffic across both app and browser

How it works

Seamless deployment

AirWatch customers can efficiently deploy Wandera over-the-air (OTA) across any number of enterprise mobile devices directly from the AirWatch console. For fleets made up of iOS supervised devices, this deployment is zero-touch, requiring no input from the user. For other devices, a one-touch solution is available. In minutes, Wandera can be fully deployed and available to the entire mobile fleet.

Once deployed, Wandera and AirWatch continue to work together flawlessly to maintain enterprise mobile security and data management.

“We’ve worked closely with Wandera, as a part of the AirWatch Mobile Security Alliance, to give our mutual customers a simpler way to deliver threat prevention services. This additional integration builds upon an already strong partnership with Wandera and delivers on our goal to simplify the mobile security lifecycle for our mutual customers.”

– Erik Frieberg, Vice President, Marketing, End-User Computing, VMware.


“Once we put AirWatch in place to secure the devices we were then asked how we planned to secure the actual mobile data itself. And that’s where Wandera came in as a complement to AirWatch, not a competing solution.”

– Martin Evans, Service Delivery Manager, HomeServe
