AirWatch Provides Kindle Fire with Complete Mobile Security and Device Management
December 17, 2012
Do you have a Kindle? They’ve become much more than e-Readers now, with the Kindle Fire tablet being just as good as any other tablet on the market. If you’re using a Kindle Fire, you might want to make it enterprise ready, by providing it with the complete management that AirWatch offers.
The AirWatch (News - Alert) agent can be downloaded from the Amazon Appstore, providing an intelligent agent that supports a variety of vendors, and works with multiple versions of the Android (News - Alert) OS. With it, the Kindle Fire Tablet is provided a range of features for security and management, making it a secure and powerful device.
With AirWatch, Kindle Fire gains new security features, such as device passwords and a secure web browser, ensuring the device stays safe from threats both on and off the Internet. With its email, calendar, and contact features, you can manage the settings to sync manually or automatically, disable or encrypt attachments, and more. Email access is kept secure, thanks to AirWatch’s Secure Email Gateway (News - Alert).
When it comes to apps, it automatically prompts the user to install, update, or remove internal apps. It tracks the installed apps and their versions, so you’ll always know what you’ve got and what edition it’s on.
AirWatch also provides management features to lock or wipe the device if necessary, should it ever get stolen or lost. If you leave the company, you can keep your Kindle and lose the corporate settings, access, and applications simply by un-enrolling the device.
This can be the boost that Kindle Fire needs for users in enterprises, providing it with the security and management that it needs to be an even more useful tablet. Kindle Fire users will enjoy the level of control and security it provides, allowing them to use their own devices at will.
