Remotely Control Apps While Remaining Employee-Friendly
As corporations become more experienced in deploying and managing mobile apps across the enterprise, IT is able take mobile strategies to new levels through advanced tools and capabilities. For instance, a mobile application management (MAM) program that boasts app remote control of corporate apps can enable IT to build better apps by enabling shared real-time experiences that can bring developers and users in harmony together. By leveraging app wrapping capabilities, variables in app usage such as the user's role and location can be factored into app policies to enable administrators to modify app behaviors based on usage and policies. This provides multiple benefits to IT, developers, and employees. The use of a dynamic app policy framework can also provide IT with a diverse set of app policies that can impose specific behavior and functionality based on the app policy. For instance, by using a dynamic app policy framework, IT or an app administrator can decide whether a particular corporate app requires incremental password protection. As soon as the admin applies the new rule to the app, all mobile users would then be immediately required to sign into the app using the additional credentials. In addition, a member of the app support team could apply remote control policies which would enable members of the support team to remotely troubleshoot any challenges with mobile users' apps.
