    How to Set Up App Permissions & Configurations with Scalefusion MDM

    Mobile application management is witnessing widespread adoption at workplaces, thanks to the growing culture of bring your own device (BYOD). Mobile application management allows users to access internally developed and commercially available apps on their personal or company-provided devices. The aim is to make sure employees stay productive, and companies prevent any data loss—intentional and unintentional. With Scalefusion MDM, IT admins can put together app configurations and permissions on deployed mobile devices. Mobile app configuration for Android, iOS, and Windows devices ensures that the organization’s data remains safe or contained in a managed app.

    App Protection Policies on Android Devices

    1. Navigate to Application Management
    2. Click Play for Work Apps 
    1. Select the app from the repository and navigate to App Configurations; click +Create
    1. Provide a configuration name and manage the settings
    1. Save and publish the configuration on the required device groups/profiles/devices.
    Note: Once the configurations are saved, they will reflect under App Configurations

    App Protection Policies on iOS Devices

      2. Uploading a configuration file
    1. Save the configuration and distribute the app to the required devices
    Note: Configured iOS apps can be published on device profiles only

    App Protection Policies on Windows Devices

    Note: IT admins will first need to associate Microsoft Store for Business with Scalefusion MDM to download or push apps to devices
    1. Navigate to Application Management
    2. Click Windows Business Store > Windows App Catalog
    1. Select the app from the repository and navigate to App Configurations; click +Create
    1. Provide a configuration name and modify the app configuration; click Save to finish
    1. Select a device profile to push the modified app and click Publish

    Alternatively, IT admins can click the three-dot menu against the newly created configuration and click Publish to distribute the app on device profiles.

    Additional App Protection on BYOD Work Profiles

    Employees often use personal devices for personal and work tasks. While companies may trust employees to handle sensitive corporate information responsibly, they need to be on the safe side. Organizations can apply extensive app management policies to secure sensitive business information without hampering employee privacy.

    1. Navigate to Device Profiles & Policies > Device Profiles
    2. Select the necessary BYOD work profile 
    3. Click the Edit Device Profile icon
    1. Navigate to Restrictions > Device Settings > General Settings
    1. Scroll down to Data Sharing and turn on the toggle controls to apply app permissions

    Using these app protection settings in a BYOD scenario prevents the sharing of data between personal and work profiles.
