AirWatch by VMware was founded in 2003 and achieved early success in managing wireless endpoints and ruggedized devices. In 2006, as smart devices entered the enterprise and employees required access to corporate information, the AirWatch leadership team strategically pivoted the company’s focus to manage any device in an organization’s mobile fleet. The team believed that the consumerization of IT would completely revolutionize the way companies do business – and they were right.

Today, AirWatch is the leading enterprise mobility management provider. With more than a decade in business, AirWatch continues to develop solutions that empower companies to focus on innovative uses of mobile technology rather than dealing with the complexities of managing mobility. In February 2013, AirWatch secured one of the largest Series A funding rounds in history at $200 million. One year later, VMware acquired AirWatch for $1.54 billion. With the combined power of AirWatch and VMware, organizations have a complete solution that allows end users to work at the speed of life from any device, anywhere, anytime.
