Frost & Sullivan Applauds AirWatch's Comprehensive Customer-Focused MDM Platform

The company offers a streamlined process for deployment and management of enterprise mobility solutions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - August 28, 2012 - Based on its recent analysis of mobile device management (MDM), Frost & Sullivan recognizes AirWatch with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Enhancement. AirWatch provides one of the most complete MDM platforms in the market, which helps IT administrators efficiently manage their enterprise mobility initiatives.

Built on industry standard .NET, MS SQL and HTML 5 development platforms, AirWatch's MDM solution offers an enterprise app catalog, robust compliance module, secure content delivery, a Secure Email Gateway, advanced reporting, as well as alerting and workflow. Its flexible deployment models, along with extremely competitive pricing, enables enterprises to leverage the platform for their unique corporate mobility requirements.

AirWatch offers a highly streamlined process for deployment and management of enterprise mobility solutions and has given IT administrators the perfect choice to efficiently manage the challenges of enterprise mobility. AirWatch continues to grow by providing a “complete” MDM solution that goes beyond providing basic endpoint monitoring services.

"The company continues to invest aggressively in enhancing the capabilities of its platform and has ensured that all AirWatch customers—regardless of their size or location—get the same level of high-quality service and support experience," says Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Vikrant Gandhi. "Ultimately, we expect that AirWatch will continue to remain the market leader in the MDM space."

Due to its large employee base, AirWatch is one of the few MDM vendors that can afford to stay current with new devices and features. This allows the company to rapidly develop and implement solutions to address any potential issues that can arise when enterprises adopt new devices or platforms.

AirWatch has also developed a superior partner ecosystem. Its many referral, reseller, service provider, mobile operator, and technology vendor partners continue to leverage its platform to deliver mobile device, application, e-mail, and content management solutions to their customer base.

"The company has a dedicated global team to make sure each partner is connected, empowered, and supported right from the start," notes Gandhi. "As a result, a large percentage of AirWatch's sales is through partner sales, which helps the company widen its reach."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. The award recognizes the company's inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and, ultimately, customer base expansion.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
