The Area settings page lets you add geofences or iBeacons for use in the AirWatch Console.

AirWatch enables you to define your profile with a Geofence. A geofence limits the use of the device to specific areas including corporate offices, school buildings, and retail department stores. You can think of a Geofence as a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area.

For example, a Geofence with a 1-mile radius may apply to your office, while a much larger Geofence may apply approximately to an entire state. Once you have defined a Geofence you can apply it to profiles, SDK applications, and AirWatch apps such as the VMware Content Locker, and more.

For more information, refer to Geofences.
