Application policies are business logic rules that you can apply to individual iOS and Android apps in your EASE organization. Applying policies—also referred to as wrapping an app—is done post-development, without requiring any code changes or SDKs. Policies provide added layers of security, management, and measurement capabilities to support corporate requirements and enhance your users' mobile experience. For example, the Jailbreak Protection policy protects enterprise data by blocking users from running apps on jailbroken devices and the App Usage policy tracks an app's usage.
When you wrap an app with policies, your choices are flexible; you can apply one policy or multiple policies.
See the List of Policies below for a description of all available policies.
How Policies Work
When you first apply policies to an app, EASE creates an application wrapper that defines its policies. Through the EASE Portal, you can sign the wrapped app and deploy it to your users.
Because the application wrapper is provided as a layer around the app, it does not alter the functionality or performance of the app, nor does it compromise the user experience in any way. On the device, EASE evaluates policies whenever the user opens the app. During that evaluation, action is taken as necessary. For example, if an app is wrapped with the Self Updating App policy, EASE checks if there is a new version of the app available and prompts the user to install it if there is.
