In this document, we aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of Mobile Application Management (MAM), introduce our mobile apps tailored for Microsoft Intune, outline the current policy support and restrictions of our Intune app, guide you through the requirements and steps to set up Intune-compatible apps, explain how these apps function within your organization, and address some frequently asked questions.
Understanding Mobile Application Management (MAM)
Mobile Application Management (MAM) is a potent tool empowering organizations to secure and manage mobile apps deployed on employees' devices. MAM's primary focus is safeguarding the data within the app itself, rather than the device. This approach allows you to protect sensitive organizational data while affording users the flexibility to use their devices for both personal and work purposes.
Our Mobile Apps for Intune
We are delighted to introduce our mobile apps, purpose-built for Microsoft Intune. These apps are available for both Android and iOS devices as native and branded apps ensuring a seamless experience for your entire workforce.
Policy Support and Restrictions
Our Intune app comes equipped with a range of default policies designed to enhance security and control:
Require Biometrics to Open the App: You can mandate the use of Face ID or a PIN code, with the option for users to select Face ID if their device supports it. This can be controlled through Intune policy. Please note that Android only supports PIN, whereas iOS supports both Touch ID and Face ID based on device compatibility.
Require Encryption of Organizational Data: Encryption of organizational data can be enforced through Intune policy.
No Backups: Our app does not offer a backup option, ensuring that sensitive data remains under your organization's control.
No Jailbroken Devices: We fully support Intune policies to block jailbroken or rooted devices.
Prevent Copying and Pasting: Content copying and pasting can be controlled via Intune policies.
Detailed Messages on Locked Mobile Screens: While there is no specific Intune policy for this, it can be managed through OS settings.
Reauthorization and Access Restriction: Our app aligns with Single Sign-On (SSO) configurations and timeouts, providing you with control over access.
