An app store with enterprise-approved mobile apps makes application distribution easier and more streamlined. It gives employees the freedom to choose and install only required corporate-approved apps. For an enterprise, it could lower the device vulnerability to unnecessary downloads and other security related threats.

As a part of the Mobile Application Management (MAM) feature, SureMDM allows IT Admins to create their own enterprise app store. They can use SureMDM Web Console to compile a list of enterprise apps and push it to the enrolled mobile devices.
