In one celebrated case, a mobile malware app has reportedly been using impersonation, overlay and ransomware techniques all in one rogue app.
Mobile Application Management empowers IT administrators to distribute, update, manage and secure applications on shared, personal and corporate owned mobile smartphones and tablets. IT administrators will typically access a centralized console that manages the deployment lifecycle of the applications in the enterprise environment from end-to-end.
One of the key capabilities of Mobile Application Management software is the real-time nature of app management. Administrators need to be able to configure alerts based on app usage, compliance or non-compliance, and user behavior as well as report on app inventory, usage, and histories.
Mobile Application Management gives you application-level encryption and security policies that work regardless of device security. Containerization restricts data sharing, so users can install whatever personal apps they want also isolates applications or application groups, preventing them from sharing data with apps outside of that group.
