VMware has revealed a slimmed-down, cloudy, slightly-hipsterised (see image below), version of its AirWatch mobile device management (MDM) suite.
"AirWatch Express" is billed as suitable for smaller businesses who lack a dedicated IT department but still like the idea of MDM to ensure the mobile devices their staff wield don't go awry. The new as-a-service service offers an almost cartoon-like interface and is suggested as the foundation of a future enterprise mobility management strategy.
Prices start at US$2.50 per device per month, for kit running iOS, MacOS, Android and Windows 10. The service lets admins control which bits of a device's hardware work, set policies for permissible applications, control some OS features and allow remote wiping of a machine. ®
