Managed apps are apps that will be used for business purposes only. They are managed by Cortado. You can select these apps yourself and quickly and easily push them onto the devices used in the company. No additional installation steps are required by users. Thus, important applications are made available wirelessly and without fuss. Moreover, you can always delete the managed apps again from the devices. Thus, you retain full control over the applications, their users and the data being used. Managed apps are available for iOS and macOS devices and via Android Enterprise managed devices.
On iOS devices, a secure business container is set up to administer managed apps. Cortado makes it possible to specify which apps can be used for opening and sharing business data. Then, when users import or export files in other apps, they will only be offered the managed apps. So uncontrolled downloading of company data in unmanaged apps, or even in the cloud, will be prevented. Further information on setting up a secure Business Container, with managed apps and managed domains, protected by a per-app VPN, can be found in our White Paper: The Secure Business Container.
On devices that are administered using Android Enterprise, you have the choice to either set up a work profile in which the managed apps are administered or to administer the whole device (incl. all apps).
