Mobile Classroom Adoption, Demands of Digital Natives Fuel Exponential Growth for AirWatch in Global Education Market

AirWatch®, the global leader and innovator in mobile security, Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Application Management (MAM), Mobile Content Management (MCM), Mobile Email Management (MEM) and BYOD management, exceeded 400 global education customers in K-12 and higher education institutions and continues to rapidly grow due to the dedicated AirWatch education team and robust AirWatch education solutions.

"Our student-athletes are our main priority and we are committed to providing the latest, cutting edge technologies to facilitate their learning experiences," said Tom Long, Director of Football Information, Duke University. "We needed a partner to deliver mobile learning that would ensure our mobile devices and the apps and content on those devices were secure and acting as assets, not burdens. AirWatch is that partner for us, and we're very pleased with our choice."

Schools and universities face unique challenges, compared to businesses, when it comes to implementing mobile technologies. For this reason, educational institutions need a knowledgeable partner who understands the pain points associated with providing mobile devices to students and faculty. AirWatch’s dedicated education team ensures that academic institutions’ specific needs are being met quickly and with the highest level of expertise.

Supporting both K-12 and higher education institutions, AirWatch realizes the importance of having a comprehensive mobile management solution that’s easy-to-use and does not negatively impact student’s learning experiences. It is critical for educators to control their mobile environment and ensure they are compliant with CIPA and COPPA regulations. With AirWatch in place, the mobility management process is simplified across the entire fleet.

“Currently, we’re hosting 700 devices on the AirWatch console and are evaluating the benefits it offers for a university wide deployment to all staff and students,” said, Dr. John Shemilt, ICT Director, Imperial College of London. “AirWatch makes the setup and central management of our devices much simpler, and ensures the security of the devices.”

AirWatch offers other customized features that are important to educators:

  • Manage Apple, Android (including Kindle Fire), BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows devices from a centralized, intuitive HTML5 console
  • Track detailed information regarding mobile assets, including real-time GPS location
  • Configure consistent policies, settings and restrictions across any mobile device
  • Secure the distribution of in-house and purchased apps and manage updates
  • Manage faculty, staff and student mobile devices uniquely, based on ownership
  • Monitor compliance with school policies and industry regulations, including CIPA and COPPA
  • Secure access to school resources, including email, VPN and Wi-Fi networks
  • Deliver via cloud, on-premise or as a software appliance
  • Integrate with Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) to make bulk purchases of apps from iTunes® for widespread distribution to students, faculty or staff

“A major concern for our organization is ensuring that our students are only accessing approved content, websites and materials,” said Kelan Griffin, Technology Specialist, Christ the King. “As a private, Catholic school, our top priority is to provide the safest environment for our students to learn. We rest easy knowing that AirWatch will be our other set of eyes and the teachers can focus on teaching and not monitoring every student’s tablet.”

“No other company is excelling like we are in cultivating a field of experts in education. IT administrators and teachers view AirWatch as a trusted ally to monitor device activity, protect students from harmful content, and promote educational learning through technology,” said John Marshall, CEO, AirWatch. “Growing to more than 400 education customers team speaks volumes about the importance we place on providing the right solutions tailored to individual needs.”

About AirWatch®

AirWatch is the global leader in mobile device security and management (MDM) systems, and with 800 associates, more than twice the size of any other MDM company. Having no outside capital, AirWatch is predominately funded by operating cash flow, resulting in an estimated install base four to five times larger than any other MDM provider. The largest customer base, combined with the largest research and development team in the industry, allows AirWatch to provide the broadest functionality at the lowest cost. This, combined with our scalable high-availability architecture, results in virtually every mobility project with more than 20,000 devices being managed by AirWatch. Examples of this market leadership include the top three companies in the Fortune 500 and eight of the top 10 retailers in the United States. This unique ability to scale is critical for educational institutions with substantial numbers of students enrolled in their mobile programs.
