XenMobile provides mobile application management (MAM) options so your organization can select the mobile app management strategy that’s best suited to meet your security and privacy requirements. Protect application data either by leveraging device and platform security or by taking the XenMobile MAM-only approach, which requires no device enrollment. The XenMobile MAM-only approach is ideal for BYOD situations where user privacy prohibits the use of an MDM client or device enrollment and management.
For many enterprises, a mobile app management strategy includes shared devices and apps among its workforce. XenMobile offers a MAM-first approach, where multiple users can access the business applications they need without having to re-enroll each time. When employees log into the device, their personalized mobile application management profiles and preferences are restored. This saves users from redundant tasks and encourages BYOD adoption.
With many strong security features, the XenMobile MAM-first approach also allows for app-specific controls, such as single sign-on across all apps in the container and the ability to wipe or lock an app. Mobile app management also provides seamless delivery of productivity efficiencies with inter-app workflows.
The XenMobile MAM-only option provides application-level encryption and security policies that aren’t dependent on device security. This essentially provides an additional layer of security, so the risk of data loss is lower in the event a device is compromised. In addition, with XenMobile per-app encryption and containerization, enterprise apps are restricted from sharing data with personal apps. Users can continue to work productively, with the knowledge that their emails, contacts, web searches, and shared files are protected.
