App Distribution via the Apperian App Store

Whether it is one mobile app or many, organizations can use Apperian’s best-in-class App Store to securely distribute any type of app — custom, off-the-shelf or public — to users regardless of whether their device is managed or not. The Apperian App Store has a similar feel to that of public app stores but is completely brandable giving organizations a tailored yet familiar experience for users.

App Distribution via Direct Link to End-Users

The Apperian mobile application management platform enables administrators to provide users the ability to download the app directly to their device via a link shared in an email, launched from a QR code or included in other user communications. The downloaded apps are fully secured, managed, and can be distributed without requiring the device to be managed.

App Distribution via Corporate Portals

Corporate portals can host Apperian’s secure and policy-enabled apps to maximize existing IT infrastructure and investments.

App Distribution via Private App Stores

Organizations that have created their own private app store or are using a 3rd party app store, can include policy-enabled apps. Administrators can utilize Apperian’s comprehensive mobile application management and security capabilities without the need for a separate app store environment.

App Distribution via Existing MDM or EMM Systems

Organizations can distribute Apperian managed and secured apps through existing mobility tools, such as AirWatch, Blackberry Good, and IBM Maas360. Unlike MDM-based tools, this allows organizations to use Apperian’s extensive policy library or to create customized policies that can reach users with managed or unmanaged devices.
