The Afaria App is a component of an overall Afaria implementation, and requires communications with a back-end Afaria server in order to operate properly. The Afaria client provides an App portal that will allow IT departments to distribute and update Apps over the air to their users. Users can select from a list of authorized Apps.
The Afaria server administrator also has the ability to gate access to corporate email servers based upon security policies or device stats. For example, if the user does not run the application every ‘n’ hours then the user will no longer have access to corporate email.
The Afaria App also reports on-device information to the user such as battery life, memory available, and OS.
