With Eleven Additional Patents Pending, Apperian Strengthens Innovative Portfolio of Mobile App Security and Management Solutions for the Enterprise

BOSTON – May 4, 2016 – Apperian® Inc., the mobile application management (MAM®) company, today announced it has been awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its Dynamic Policy Engine. The technology allows IT and app administrators to effortlessly add security, identity and management policies without requiring software development kits (SDKs) or code modification. Unlike traditional enterprise mobility management approaches, Apperian’s breakthrough Dynamic Policy Engine is able to apply and make updates to app policies in a way that is instantaneous yet undetectable to end users and does not require users to download new versions of apps. This helps organizations remain flexible to meet changing compliance, governance and security needs without obstructing app adoption. The Dynamic Policy Engine allows non-technical app administrators in the enterprise to use a point and click web interface to easily apply new policies or policy updates to apps without programming or going back to developers. Requiring neither modification of an app’s code nor use of SDK, it puts the power in the hands of IT and mobile administrators. This saves significant time and money and ensures consistent application of policies across all corporate apps. The Dynamic Policy Engine is also fully customizable, allowing for simple and fast application of any type of policy. Examples of Apperian’s existing dynamic security and management policies include Enterprise SSO, Data Wipe, Runtime Integrity Check, Collect Crash Report, App Analytics, App Expiration, Require Passphrase, Root/Jailbreak Detection, Self Updating App and more. In addition, custom dynamic policies can be created to meet business-specific needs, and organizations can apply custom or standard policies individually or in groups to enable fine-grained control over enterprise app usage. “With development and deployment of enterprise mobile apps taking off, it’s essential that organizations provide a secure and consistent experience for users,” said Brian Day, CEO, Apperian. “Existing mobile app security approaches create extra work for developers. They’re also cumbersome for end users, forcing them to download new versions of apps every single time a policy has been changed, which lead to lower adoption rates and creates issues with compliance. We designed and developed the Apperian Dynamic Policy Engine to make applying and managing mobile app policies easy for the organization and seamless for end users to drive the highest levels of ROI.” To learn more about the Dynamic Policy Engine and Apperian’s user-friendly Mobile Application Management platform, please visit About Apperian Apperian is the leading enterprise-class mobile application management (MAM®) and security platform for the delivery of critical apps to 100% of users across an organization.
