Afaria enables enterprise IT organizations to centrally manage, secure and deploy iPhone and iPad devices for enterprise use. Please consult with your company’s IT organization before installing this App.
The Afaria App is a component of an overall Afaria implementation, and requires communications with a back-end Afaria server in order to operate properly. The Afaria client provides an App portal that will allow IT departments to distribute and update Apps over the air to their users. Users can select from a list of authorized in-house Apps as well as a list of suggested App Store Apps. Updates to in-house Apps are also displayed when available.
The Afaria App ensures devices maintain the highest levels of secure by determining if the device has been compromised. When the Afaria client is activated it will run a series of checks on the device to determine if the device has been compromised. The status is then communicated back to the enterprise Afaria server, which in turn allows gating of access to corporate email. The Afaria server administrator also has the ability to gate access to corporate email servers based upon 1) A configurable time period that the application is run by the user 2) If the device has been compromised. For example, if the user does not run the application every ‘n’ hours then the user will no longer have access to corporate email.
The Afaria App also reports on-device information to the user such as battery life, memory available, OS and UDID.
