Appthority and AirWatch announced that AirWatch EMM is integrated with Appthority’s fully automated App Risk Management service for app analysis and risk management.
The Appthority partnership with AirWatch addresses a critical problem in empowering employees to access mobile applications. Previously, companies had no insight into which mobile apps to block or permit. With mobile app use exponentially increasing in the enterprise and 83 percent of mobile apps accessing corporate data, only Appthority provides the static, dynamic and behavioral analysis needed to assess app risk and make informed app use policy decisions. Armed with customized app reputation scores from Appthority, IT departments can create a mobile policy through the Appthority Portal, and enforce the policy on their AirWatch deployments.

Appthority now integrates with AirWatch to provide visibility into the presence of malware, security frameworks, privacy issues and risky behaviors of apps within AirWatch EMM deployments.
