App reputation support

In Sophos Mobile you can define list of apps, called app groups, for app reputation purposes. For example:

  • Apps that users are allowed to install on their devices (allowed apps).
  • Apps that users are not allowed to install on their devices (forbidden apps).

When you define allowed apps, all other apps not included in the app group are forbidden.

When you define forbidden apps, all other apps not included in the app group are allowed.

App groups contain apps for a specific device platform. To cover apps from more than one platform, you need to create separate app groups.

Note App groups in themselves do not include any app reputation classification. They merely are a collection of apps. The app reputation classification is established within Sophos Mobile by using an app group for a certain purpose, that is, to define allowed or forbidden apps.
