Introducing VMware Tunnel 2.0 for iOS

The VMware AirWatch team is excited to announce that VMware Tunnel 2.0 for iOS is publicly available.

VMware Tunnel securely connects both internally built and public App Store applications to corporate resources within a secure network.

With VMware Tunnel, only managed applications can establish a connection with corporate resources, ensuring your resources remain private.

Note: VMware Tunnel will not operate without the required AirWatch infrastructure. Please contact your IT administrator before installing VMware Tunnel.
