A new study released today by DHS S&T describes a continuous approach to mobile app vetting that integrates the capabilities of enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions with app vetting tools to improve the security of mobile devices.

S&T Evaluating Mobile App Vetting Integration with Enterprise Mobility Management in the Enterprise Report

This S&T study recommends federal agencies adopt a continuous approach to standards-based mobile app vetting by integrating vetting tools with EMM and exploring nontraditional approaches, such as app threat intelligence. These approaches would improve overall federal system mobile device and enterprise security while also enabling employees to use apps to conduct business and accomplish their organization’s mission.
