Appthority provides policies for apps and devices/networks.
Custom App Policies: Created by an Org or Policy Admin to cover mobile app related threats based on the customer’s security policies. App policies use App Threat Indicators that specify app behaviors that could violate the policy.
Custom Device Policies: Created by an Org or Policy Admin to cover device- and network-related mobile threats based on the customer’s security policies. Device policies use Device Threat Indicators that specify app behaviors that could violate the policy.
Appthority MTP can be configured to report App and Device Policy violations to an EMM for enforcement actions.
Custom Remediation Policies: Created by an Org or Policy Admin to define the action steps to take when an App or Device Policy is violated. Remediation Policies are available only when the MTP Mobile App is enabled and deployed. Remediation Policies provide alerting to the end user along with required or suggested actions the employee should take to remove the threat from their device.
MTT-Managed Policies: MTT-Managed Policies are policies managed by the Appthority Mobile Threat Team, a group of mobile security researchers. The set of managed policies is continuously updated to cover the latest developments in mobile threat research and protection. The goal of managed policies is to protect, and keep protected, the customer’s entire device fleet from high risk threats, without you having to do anything.
Each Appthority MTT-Managed App and Device Policy has an associated Managed Remediation Policy. (Remediation Policies are available when using the MTP Mobile App. They are inactive if the MTP Mobile App is not deployed.)
For more information in the Help see Appthority MTP Overview.
What app policies should I start off with?
Appthority recommends that you review the MTT-Managed policies first, as the MTT researchers have identified them as high-risk, and they are already defined and enabled by default. Next:
Rreview the TIs that are in the system, either by category or by Risk Level. Group TIs together into policies. Identify any TIs for which you want to customize their Risk Level, based on the specific security needs of your Organization. Review your existing EMM user groupings to evaluate whether you want different policies for different groups.
In the Help see Create a Custom App Policy.
How do I create a Remediation Policy and its actions?
First, make sure the MTP Mobile App option is enabled in the Admin > Organization tab and that the app is deployed on user devices. In the Help see Enable Mobile Device Monitoring Using MTP Mobile App.
Create Remediation Policies in the Compliance > Remediation Policy tab. In the Help see Create a Custom Remediation Policy.
Why is the Assign Remediation Policy link and Remediation Policy tab greyed out?
Remediation Policies are only accessible if your Organization has been setup to use the MTP Mobile App. Since Remediation Policies only apply to MTP Mobile App deployments, they are inactive if the MTP Mobile App is not enabled and deployed.
Can I customize the name of an MTT-Managed Policy?
At this time you cannot change the name of an MTT-Managed Policy.
