Appthority Touts New App Risk and Policy Management Solution

Appthority Touts New App Risk and Policy Management SolutionAlthough the announcement may have largely slipped beneath the radar this week thanks to the bustling headlines made by Apple in the last 48 hours, Appthority has some big news that’s definitely worth taking note of today.

As a formidable leader in app risk management, Appthority is pushing the industry’s “first all-in-one app risk management solution.”

The solution in question supposedly combines app reputation analysis with a new policy management functionality. This enables organizations to create custom app risk policies.

Together with Appthority’s app reputation service, the new policy functionality gives IT administrators unprecedented control over mobile device management by providing both immediate app behavior insights as well as the ability to customize and directly enforce actions to neutralize app risk.

In short, Appthority’s App Risk Management solution integrated with a mobile device management (MDM) solution now gives IT administrators the tools needed to maximize the productivity gains of the Mobile First and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) movements by mitigating app risk.

“IT Managers tell us they have no idea which apps to have their MDM vendors block. One company we spoke with was only able to manually analyze 40 apps a year to try to understand risky app behaviors. Now, organizations can make the most of their MDM investment with the Appthority Trust Score ratings of nearly two million apps, the ability to analyze new apps in seconds, and the first app policy settings based on the actual behavior of each app,” said Domingo Guerra, president and co-founder of Appthority. “Mobile policy cannot be one size fits all. Our new app policy management allows IT managers to easily create smart, turn-key mobile app policies that are customized to their unique company culture and risk profile.”
