How to Securely Distribute Mobile Apps to 100% of Mobile Workers

App Management

Best-in-class companies in enterprise mobility share a common trait: they securely distribute mobile apps to all of their end users. This includes corporate employees, contract workers, and business partners. In some cases, companies need to quickly distribute a single app (e.g. mobile ERP) to a larger user population. In other instances, a specific enterprise mobile app is targeted at a functional unit such as sales where the app needs to be downloaded onto each field rep’s device within a matter of hours. Or perhaps an app needs to be distributed to a large number of contract workers. Under any of these scenarios, a mobile app must be privately and securely delivered quickly.

Administrators who want to avoid the risks associated with using a public app store such as iTunes or Google Play can count on a enterprise app store to distribute enterprise mobile apps without the overhead or intrusion of installing mobile device management (MDM) on a user’s device. An enterprise app store that provides a familiar, native experience can get the apps that matter into the hands of 100% of a company’s employees since it’s easy to use and doesn't require user training. Apps that are powered by a private enterprise app store can be inspected and wrapped with policies. Also apps contained in an enterprise app store can be auto-signed

Instead of installing an app through a public app store, users activate an app link sent by email, text or through a QR code which automatically install the app on the user’s device. Powered by a mobile application management (MAM™) platform , enterprise app stores can deliver secure mobile productivity within minutes.
