The working of LimaxLock Mobile Application Management (MAM) is divided into two major phases

  1. Application Sandboxing: - In this phase, the worthy applications used for technical work or business collaborations and marketing are isolated from all other applications. If the required application is not in-house then there is a facility to download from managed play store. IT Administrator can silently download the applications on all AfW (Android for Work) enrolled devices. Data used by applications in this isolated area is termed as the container. Isolation specifies applications inside the container are unable to interact with other applications and can’t leave the container. This process is also known as containerization
  2. Device Level MAM Using MDM Portal: - Through LimaxLock Mobile Application Management (MAM) IT administrator can manage only applications by applying app protection corporate policies. These policies enforced on applications installed on a device enrolled through Mobile device Management (MDM). MDM deals with monitoring the entire device what is being accessed and shared through the device as it is not restricted to applications. Customer who wants to manage applications through MDM+ MAM should go for LimaxLock
