Apperian Integration With Appthority App Inspection Now Live

Integration of Appthority With Apperian's Platform Helps IT Administrators Identify and Manage Risk Exposures Before Mobile Apps Are Deployed

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) -  Apperian announced today that the Appthority Platform™ is now integrated into its Enterprise App Services Environment (EASE) service. Addressing the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) to work trend, the addition of Appthority's automated app inspection platform will help businesses to determine risks in mobile applications before they are deployed.

"The BYOD phenomenon is here to stay, and companies are becoming more focused than ever on having a security solution that can manage mobile devices and applications," said Apperian SVP of Product, Alan Murray. "The addition of the Appthority platform gives our customers the ability to instantly determine risk factors before apps are issued to employees. Moreover, this feature will help IT departments make more informed decisions regarding their mobile policy."

Integrating Appthority's app inspection into EASE is another proof point of Apperian's strategy to provide businesses with a modular solution that incorporates the best products and services to manage their enterprise mobile environments. This approach enables IT managers to apply the exact capabilities they require and to manage it all from a single admin console.

The Appthority Platform™ identifies the risky behaviors behind iOS and Android apps. What may be masquerading as a simple calendar or social networking app may also put sensitive data at risk, track for location or hide mobile malware. Appthority protects companies from risky apps, enabling them to embrace BYOD and use their own mobile devices for work. Appthority is available as a premium feature to Apperian customers.

"In the past, IT departments managed a finite amount of software and they were developed and purchased from known, trusted vendors," said Domingo Guerra, president and co-founder of Appthority. "In today's mobile ecosystem, IT has to worry about millions of apps entering the workplace via mobile devices. Furthermore, these apps represent thousands of developers who aren't building enterprise-grade security and privacy features. In working with Apperian, we're identifying the hidden risky behaviors behind apps to put IT back in control of their mobile environments."
