AFEX is a framework that enables end-to-end secure and manageable services on any AndroidAndroidTM device.
AFEX is the answer to enterprise mobile devices’ and device manufacturers’ MDM needs; it enables remote installation, remote management and remote control of the devices.
AFEX can be integrated into any Android device by running a simple script. This can also be installed into devices as a mobile app for certain features.
AFEX is composed of over 1.000 additional APIs that offers valuable management capabilities and security functions to MDM, and also for device manufacturers.
Applications installed in a device may have access to unsecure resources. For example, a game application can access to microphone and can listen to media. Although it requires user confirmation during the installation, user may accept to use the app. For enterprise devices this may be a security problem that may lead to corporate data access by unauthorized parties. AFEX has the exact APIs that enables the application management.
Application restriction functionality is needed to restrict the application to access certain sources of the device, for both personal or enterprise devices. AFEX provides the functionality for different scenarios:
For enterprise deployments, some applications need to be out of user control; it is required to be uninstallable, or required to be only running application on the device.
Enterprise administration may require passwords in certain difficulty and/or may require password change in periods or secure complex password setting (Regex).
The enabling and disabling balance of the device is particularly important in enterprise deployments. Full restricted device would lead user to get a second device for personal needs. As nobody wants to keep two devices; two isolated containers can be set on the same device for corporate and personal use. On corporate container above mentioned functionalities and features could be applied to provide the required safety of corporate data.
