AirWatch provides enterprise mobility management for devices and VMware Identity Manager provides single sign-on and identity management for users.

When AirWatch and VMware Identity Manager are integrated, users from AirWatch enrolled devices can log in to their enabled apps securely without entering multiple passwords.

When AirWatch is integrated with VMware Identity Manager, you can configure the following integrations with AirWatch.

  • An AirWatch directory that syncs AirWatch users and groups to a directory in VMware Identity Manager service and then set up password authentication through the AirWatch Cloud Connector.

  • Single sign-on to a unified catalog containing entitled apps from both AirWatch and VMware Identity Manager managed.

  • Single sign-on using Kerberos authentication to iOS 9 devices.

  • Access policy rules to check that AirWatch-managed iOS 9 devices are in compliance.
