The end user product, MobileIron Apps@Work, is an enterprise application storefront. Apps@Work manages both in-house developed apps and third party business apps that can be delivered to users. The built-in Enterprise App Storefront provides both tight security and an intuitive end-user experience for the distribution and delivery of mobile applications company-wide.
MobileIron's Enterprise App Storefront has three primary capabilities:
- Application Distribution Library
- Application Security and Access Control
- Application Inventory
Application Distribution Library
The Application Distribution Library provides a centralized location for business applications and enables IT to set granular policies on applications. With MobileIron Apps@Work, IT administrators can directly publish private apps to their users, accelerating the app discovery process for end-users. Administrators can also approve external applications and distribute them to users, making it clear to employees that these apps are approved and supported.
Application Security and Access Control
Using Application Security and Access Control, administrators quickly select which applications are required, allowed, or disallowed and then associate these apps with rules that specify the consequences of being out of policy. These consequences may include blocking further email to the device or sending SMS and email notifications to the user and IT administrator informing them of policy violations.
MobileIron’s Application Inventory presents a snapshot of the applications installed across all of a company’s managed devices. MobileIron administrators can track new applications coming into the enterprise, determine the popularity of applications, and identify possible rogue applications. Administrators can also monitor user adoption of mobile enterprise applications they have built and published.
