Manage Apps Across All Apple Devices
IT administrators know that proper mobile device inventory management should be comprehensive and proactive.
Not only does strong app management mean knowing what users have on which devices, but it also means controlling what goes on a device. App management can be a potential pain point for enterprises that want to grow quickly and scale efficiently.
The good news—a new (and better) way to manage apps is here. As a tailored Apple device management tool, Addigy helps IT administrators install, deploy, and manage apps across all Apple devices in an environment.
Learn how to strengthen security and improve user experience with one seamless mobile device management platform.
Managed Apps vs. Self-Installed Apps
When a device is enrolled in MDM with Addigy, the IT admin has more control over app distribution, removal, and updates because these are managed apps. When an individual downloads their own applications outside MDM boundaries, the IT admin doesn’t have control and won’t even know which apps are on the device.
Self-installed apps may have their rightful place on personal devices. Still, IT admins understandably want and need more secure control over the applications that team members use within the corporate environment.
Easily Control App Updates, Capabilities, and Restrictions with Addigy
Most mobile device managers want to be able to recognize devices on a network. It’s critical to know who owns and operates them. When you take this inventory process one step further, it implies the need to oversee specific apps and updates that users need regularly.
Apps (and corresponding updates) change at a nearly constant pace. How can you know which apps need updating and be able to distinguish between safe and unsafe apps?
Addigy can recognize these updates—plus so much more. With innovative MDM tools and features like Smart Software, Addigy admins can package and deploy new software to macOS devices with automatic PPPC profile creation. In just a few clicks, you can control the app updates that your users need and rely on to perform key tasks.
Install Apps and Books with Addigy
In addition to Smart Software, Addigy also allows you to install Apps & Books as managed applications. Addigy automatically manages a particular app while admins deploy it to an existing device during this process.
When and if the app already exists on a device (and admins mark that specific app for deployment), Addigy will send a command to take over management of that app and provide automatic updates whenever they become available.
With features like these, Addigy removes hassle and frustration from the app update process. It’s easier for you while remaining stress-free and completely secure for users.
Improve Your App Security
If you’ve ever wanted to improve your environment’s cybersecurity, Addigy also offers the tools to identify which Apple devices and potential threats exist within an environment. With this data available, you can quickly address problems before they spiral into more significant issues.
App management and security can include important aspects of responsible app management. In typical managed environments, this looks like:
- Apps staying updated and patched in ways that prevent obvious security concerns
- Encouraging the responsible usage and sharing of sensitive information while providing IT teams with more control and oversight
- Partitioning user data away from company data to protect sensitive information or digital assets
No matter what’s happening on the device, you’ll always be able to detect irregularities, have real-time knowledge of the software installed on each device, and see which users can access specific apps or programs at a given time.
Streamline Your iOS App Management
As remote and virtual environments expand to include an even greater number of Apple devices, apps, and software solutions; it’s more important than ever to think strategically about app management.
