According to the report, which analyzes the EMM market in 2015, AirWatch experienced phenomenal growth. Notably, AirWatch grew nearly 84 percent, while the EMM market as a whole increased by less than 30 percent, according to IDC, pointing to the strength and differentiation of the VMware AirWatch platform. IDC noted this market share expansion is a result of the AirWatch integration with VMware, a unified VMware End-User Computing strategy and VMware's acquisition of Boxer email. Applications of new Internet of Things (IoT) use cases and VMware's substantial channel and partner base also contributed to the strengthened presence of VMware AirWatch, according to the report.

"This report is an incredible validation of our product innovation, global scale and commitment to our customers' successful mobile initiatives," said Noah Wasmer, senior vice president, mobile products, End-User Computing, VMware. "Our digital workspace strategy and commitment to delivering the most comprehensive EMM solution enabled us to outpace market growth and maintain our No. 1 position.
