Mobile Application Management (MAM)
Provision and manage apps on mobile devices to optimize employees' work while making sure company data is secured
Enterprise mobility is determined by the rapid evolution of mobile technologies which lead to increased productivity and act like an alternative means of communicating and doing business. The positive effects of the orientation towards mobile are clearly visible in peoples’ daily work and companies’ processes: increased productivity, new business models, etc. Yet, there are downsides which are impossible to ignore: employees’ bringing their own devices (BYOD) to work, bring their personal life with them, as well, having on these gadgets a mix of company data, business related apps, personal data and consumer apps. Thus, company’s sensitive data and corporate intellectual property are exposed to a series of threats, malware infections, and data breaches being most likely to happen due to non-compliant apps that have access to phone numbers and the address book, location, and other confidential information.
MAM by Endpoint Protector prevents the backup of apps data to the computer, data loss when devices become unmanaged and the use of non-compliant apps. It does all that by deploying apps to enrolled devices, remote deleting undesired apps and keeping records of all installed apps.

Mobility is now dominating the business industry and it managed to change employees’ working habits. Mobile apps have contributed significantly to this change and organizations failing to support employees in their creative and productive use of apps while securing data, will fail also the mobility challenge. Innovation lies not only in technology but also in processes and adapting to changes like the ones imposed by mobility.
How Mobile Application Management Works
It is true that mobile apps can increase employees' productivity and can enrich their work processes but they are also a potential threat to data loss. Having visibility in what apps are employees using, setting security configurations, or distributing apps verified by the IT department are measures that any organization should apply to take control of mobile apps and protect sensitive data.
IT departments' work is simplified with the integration of mobile devices within an easy to use, user-friendly web-based console. Apps discovery, analysis, and distribution fall within IT Admins' control without complicating their lives.
