AirWatch Inbox Mobile Email Offers Enterprise-Grade Security

Inbox joins the company’s EMM platform slate, including Workspace, Browser and Secure Content Locker, a content management and collaboration solution.

Enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider AirWatch announced the launch of Inbox, part of the company’s mobile email management (MEM) suite, which enables secure corporate email access through the native client on Apple, Android and Windows devices and support of third-party email clients.

Inbox is available on Apple iOS and Android devices at $1 per device per month with maintenance included or a one-time fee of $20 per device with an annual maintenance fee of $4 per device.

The offering joins the company’s EMM platform, which also includes AirWatch Workspace, Browser and Secure Content Locker, a content management and collaboration solution.

Used together, these solutions allow employees to read emails using the email client, open applications securely with Secure Content Locker and view Web pages securely in Browser. Inbox also supports 16 languages and can be changed by IT administrators and users.

The Inbox platform features enterprise-grade security policies, data encryption and advanced Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capabilities, as well as a user-friendly interface for accessing email, calendar and contacts.

In addition, IT administrators have the ability to set consistent policies, settings and experience across mobile device platforms, and organizations can choose from flexible deployment options, with mobile device management (MDM), AirWatch Workspace or standalone.

Offering integration with existing email infrastructure and built on the company’s EMM platform unified code base, Inbox is aimed at highly regulated deployments and bring your own device (BYOD) programs.

"We continue to expand our platform to provide enterprises with the most flexibility so they can deploy native email, AirWatch Inbox or third-party email clients based on the business’s or user’s specific security requirements," John Marshall, president and CEO of AirWatch, said in a statement. "We developed AirWatch Inbox to have an intuitive end-user experience to increase employee adoption but with the security capabilities to ensure organizations can protect sensitive corporate information."

In December, AirWatch added an application reputation scanning technology into its platform for complete support of corporate-owned device and BYOD deployments, which works on public and internal applications, and it can be implemented with MDM as a separate dual persona container with Workspace or as standalone app scanning.

App Reputation Scanning is integrated into the AirWatch platform and the new capabilities built by the company, combined with the existing AirWatch Mobile Application Management solution portfolio, including app wrapping, Software Development Kit (SDK), custom app catalog and Volume Purchase Program (VPP), provide the most advanced, internally-developed solution on the market.
