App wrapping is a method for applying business or security logic to individual apps that have already been compiled.
Apperian’s App Wrapping
Apperian’s patented Dynamic Policy Engine provides customers with the most diverse set of app wrapping policies that administrators can apply directly to apps that enhance behavior and functionality depending on the policy. Policies are applied via app wrapping without requiring an SDK or changes to the code. Dynamic policies can also be added, removed and configured without having to resign or redistribute the app. With a simple checkbox interface, administers can fine-tune policies on an app-by-app basis. Policies can also be stacked and work together for extremely robust security and management.
Apperian provides three types of mobile app wrapping policies:
- Security policies create “self-defending” apps that protect themselves on whatever device they are running on. Policies such as FIPS 140-2 encryption, copy/paste protection, corporate authentication, app-level VPN, jailbreak detection, data wipe, app expiration and run-time integrity check provide a robust set of security measures for administrators.
- Management policies help administrators support users and keep apps up-to-date across a large number of users. Apps can be made visible to different sets of users based on their role and administrators can enable or disable apps at any time.
- Analytic policies provide actionable, app-level insight into how apps are being used, for how long and by whom. A dashboard displays pertinent information graphically for a high-level view.
