AirWatch Develops App Reputation Scanning

— December 14, 2013

AirWatch has developed app reputation scanning technology into its platform for complete support of corporate-owned device and BYOD deployments.

AirWatch App Reputation Scanning is fully integrated into the AirWatch platform and the new capabilities built by AirWatch are combined with the existing Mobile Application Management solution portfolio, including app wrapping, Software Development Kit (SDK), custom app catalog and Volume Purchase Program (VPP).

Enterprises deploy mobile applications to improve productivity, promote collaboration and connect employees to corporate resources. Before distributing mobile applications, IT administrators want to ensure that public, vendor-supplied and internally-developed applications are built properly, maintain user privacy and comply with company security standards for safe business use. AirWatch App Reputation Scanning works on public and internal applications, and it can be implemented with Mobile Device Management (MDM), as a separate dual persona container with AirWatch Workspace or as standalone app scanning.

AirWatch App Reputation Scanning allows organizations to quickly and easily run analysis on applications to determine if they exhibit risky behaviors, access privacy settings on the device, expose user contacts or geolocation information, or use insecure programming or design. Organizations can review app reputation scanning analysis results from the easy-to-navigate console and then decide to allow or ban the app on managed devices.

AirWatch also features an advanced ecosystem of technology partners and API integrations. Organizations can take complete advantage of AirWatch capabilities, while also leveraging seamless integrations to third-party app risk management providers, such as Appthority and Veracode.

“Every company has a different tolerance for risk depending on the sensitivity of the data involved, but every company needs to know what a mobile app is actually doing in order to set custom policies that match the organization’s requirements,” said Domingo Guerra, Co-founder & President, Appthority.

“AirWatch understands the criticality of app risk and is empowering its customers to take action by creating custom policies based on the behaviors of an app and the role of each group or individual’s needs within their organization.”AirWatch Develops App Reputation Scanning
