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.
Enabling a Geofence is a two-step process.
- Geofencing is available for Android and iOS devices.
- Remember that while Geofencing is combined with another payload to enable security profiles based on location, consider having only one payload per profile.
