The Mobile Mentor Advantage
AirWatch is the Mobile Device Management component of VMware Workspace ONE, a digital workspace platform that simply and securely delivers and manages any app on any device by integrating access control, application management and multi-platform endpoint management. AirWatch is consistently rated by Gartner and other analysts as the leading global platform for enterprise mobility.
AirWatch is also considered to have the best user interface of any MDM platform and has fully embraced AppConfig to simplify the process of configuring and deploying enterprise apps. Airwatch was purchased by VMware in 2014 and is now an integral part of the VMware Workspace ONE platform.
Partners Since 2011
Mobile Mentor is proud to have been a VMware partner since 2011. 5 years is a long time in the fast-changing mobile industry and this partnership underpins many aspects of our mobility service.
In 2013, we built an AirWatch private cloud environment in a government approved data center to meet stringent security requirements and fault tolerance.
This environment has been risk assessed by PwC, certified for government use and continues to achieve 99.99% availability. We operate a N-1 upgrade policy and our certified engineers maintain the platform in close partnership with VMware and Revera, our data center partner.
Today this continues to be one of the largest and most successful private cloud environments, serving government users in 34 countries and growing 100% year on year.
Mobile Mentor shares a common mission with AirWatch to simplify mobility management.
We believe that 95% of the tasks done by mobile workers should be done on mobile devices and not require the use of a desktop PC. This mobile experience requires a set of powerful apps with seamless integration to enterprise resources and a layered security model that provides IT administrators with complete visibility of all devices and apps with powerful reporting tools.
How Mobile Mentor Compliments AirWatch
Mobile Mentor is a VMware partner with specialist skills in mobile app development, mobile security and the management of mobile assets.
Mobile App Development
Our developers use leading development tools to build a best practice app architecture for enterprise and government clients and then leverage AWS or Azure to deliver robust, scalable and secure infrastructure.
Once we have an app ready to deploy, we use the AppConfig standards and the Workspace ONE platform to deploy the app to enterprise users with a seamless user experience. This means an enterprise user can download an app from their enterprise app store and have a single sign-on experience because the app derives the user’s credentials from the VMware identity on the device.
Mobile Mentor is an VMware certified mobility partner and we design, deploy and support the Workspace ONE platform to secure identity, devices, apps and data.
We generally recommend integration with the client’s enterprise resources with some or all of the following options:
Integration with directory services via the VMware Enterprise Connector to streamline the authentication process
Integration with Exchange or Office 365 through a VMware proxy server called the Secure Email Gateway to prevent back-door access from BYO devices;
Integration with SharePoint, file storage through the VMware Content Gateway
Integration with enterprise applications through the VMware Tunnel
Integration with the enterprise policies for BYOD though the VMware Privacy App
For enterprises with multiple use-cases, we design a layered security model so that security is applied intelligently depending on the location of the user, posture of the device and the sensitivity of the data to be protected.
Our deployments include on-premise installations, pure cloud and hybrid cloud. More recently we have helped several organisations to migrate from on-premise to cloud.
We manage all hardware, enterprise apps and mobile network connections to support end-users 24×7.
We integrate with all the major mobile networks, importing data usage records to an SQL database to monitor spend on behalf of our client. Since 2008, we have consistently saved our clients 1% per month compounding on their mobile bill – in spite of growing data usage.
We aggregate security information from all devices by interfacing with the VMware back-end and we combine this with support KPIs for all users and mobile usage statistics from all connections. This builds a 360 view of the mobile environment and provides our client with a set of powerful dashboards that provide real-time visibility of the mobile environment.
