Workspace 2.0


NOTICE - macOS / SCL Incompatibility

macOS Mojave was released on September 24th, 2018.

Airwatch Content Locker Sync does not currently start on macOS 10.14 (Mojave) computers.
If you wish to maintain sync functionality between your computer and Workspace, please do not upgrade your Apple computer to Mojave.
This is a known issue and the vendor informs us they are working on a fix.
