    Application whitelisting or blacklisting is crucial on enterprise devices to ensure that the productive employee time is not wasted on non-work applications. As digital transformation is embraced by enterprises, by and large, having devices with unlimited access to entertainment apps can lead to severe employee distraction, impacting the overall efficiency and also burdening the enterprises with added data costs. Furthermore, having access to untrusted applications can result into malware installation on devices, causing a serious threat to critical corporate data. For preventing access to unauthorized apps on enterprise devices, a mobile device management tool can come to the rescue.

    With Scalefusion MDM, IT administrators can create comprehensive device policies that define which apps are to be allowed and which are to be blocked. While defining the policies for enterprise devices, IT admins can whitelist apps on Android as well as iOS devices with ease. While a kiosk software can help to whitelist or blacklist applications on Android and iOS devices, Scalefusion helps to achieve extensive remote management with added kiosk management capabilities.
