Augmentation of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend in businesses means there is an increased risk of IT managers losing control of their network. Is your network secure?

It is time for IT Managers to keep up with the shift in trend around the way users work.

With unaccounted for devices connecting to corporate sources, IT departments are now facing the near on impossible task of securing corporate data. Alongside the difficulty of delivering a great user experience for employees who are using these unaccounted for devices, IT departments need to shift their focus onto ways of managing the ever-evolving trend of bring-your-own-device (BYOD).

VMware’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) piece AirWatch, offers a flexible, secure and innovative solution. Here are six reasons we feel make AirWatch stand out from the crowd.
