By CIOReview | Wednesday, November 25, 2015

FREMONT, CA: To allow organizations distribute apps that are policy-enabled and fully managed without requiring full mobile device management, Apperian, the mobile application management (MAM) and security company, announces support for universal app distribution through a variety of channels including existing private app stores, mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobility management (EMM) systems, via corporate portals, or direct to end user.

The support that Apperian mobile application management and security platform and policy engine will provide includes:

Distribution of Managed Apps through Existing MDM or EMM Environments: With Apperian, Organizations can now distribute managed apps through existing mobility tools, such as AirWatch by VMware, Good by BlackBerry, IBM MaaS360, MobileIron and more. It enables organizations to take advantage of Apperian's extensive policy library or create customized policies when trying to securely deploy apps to unmanaged devices.

Corporate Portals: With the new support, existing corporate portals can host Apperian policy-enabled apps so that secured and managed apps are available via existing workflows.

Private App Stores:  It allows Apperian policy-enabled apps to be included in private app store, allowing administrators to utilize the comprehensive Apperian mobile application management and security back-end and policy engine.

App Distribution to Non-Managed Devices: Apperian now supports direct download links in email, launched from barcodes, or included in other user communications. The downloaded apps are not only fully secured and managed but can be distributed without requiring MDM, EMM, or private enterprise app stores.

"As organizations today increase the pace of mobile app development they are also running into the common limitation of not being able to securely reach all users who can benefit from the apps. Our new support for universal app distribution allows those organizations to securely deploy mobile apps through their existing systems. As Apperian applies management and security at the individual app level, any user can be reached regardless of whether their device is managed or not," says Mark Lorion, Chief Marketing Officer, Apperian.
