As businesses expand, IT staffs often do not. When more and more people are added to the company, you will need a way to manage everyone’s devices. Whether you have corporate secrets to protect, a BYOD policy to enforce, or you just want people to stop asking you for the Wi-Fi password, mobile device management is becoming a bigger part of day to day operations. Today, VMware is proud to announce the addition of a new product, Airwatch Express!
Airwatch Express is the MDM-as-a-service offering that allows companies to manage mobile devices without going through a major investment in time or resources. At only $2.50/month/device, this offering allows a 100% cloud based management of devices that comes in at almost half the current pricing.
