A Leader in Mobile Application Management and App-Centric Security Helps Organizations Reach Unmanaged Devices and Gain Higher Levels of Mobile Security

Boston, MA – March 22, 2016 – Apperian® Inc, a leading provider of mobile application management (MAM®) and security solutions, today announced that it has been identified as a representative vendor for stand-alone MAM Tools in the Gartner "Market Guide for Mobile Application Management" report. The report states, “In some organizations, Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) functionality is narrowed to device-level policy enforcement and security framework management while MAM takes over the application management and application-specific security.” According to Gartner, “Throughout 2015, Gartner witnessed a doubling in the number of inbound client inquiries seeking guidance on selecting a MAM tool. For many of these organizations, the choice to seek a MAM tool is often driven by a need to distribute and manage a growing number of apps, both custom and those available to the broader market from mobile software vendors. EMM container development tools do not suffice since they require the use of niche market tools that limit flexibility due to the small size of most EMM vendors.” The Apperian Mobile Application Management platform, which has delivered over two million enterprise apps, provides fine-grained security and dynamic policy controls at the individual app level, ensuring safe app deployment without requiring Mobile Device Management (MDM) software. The platform provides:
  • A private enterprise app store for deploying any app to any user throughout an organization and the extended enterprise
  • Government-grade mobile app security that protects access to sensitive information at the app-level
  • Security, management and analytics policies applied to the app without requiring mobile app code modifications or use of SDKs
  • Universal App Distribution capabilities that allow deploying policy-enabled apps through corporate portals, direct download links, and even pre-existing or home-grown corporate app catalogs and without requiring management of the devices
  • Seamless integration with mobile app development platforms and identity providers
  • The industry’s most comprehensive app lifecycle management workflow
  • An open API platform providing organizations the ability to leverage specific app management capabilities and easily integrate the Apperian back-end to power any mobile environment
“Many organizations now realize the significant benefits of applying security and management at the app-level to maximize the secure adoption and reach of their mobile apps,” said Brian Day, President and CEO at Apperian. “We believe that it is great to see Gartner recognize the value that best-of-breed, stand-alone MAM solutions deliver above and beyond what the traditional EMM products are able to provide. We also believe that being recognized in the Gartner Market Guide for Mobile Application Management is a real honor, and reinforces the surge in demand we’ve been experiencing over the last year."
