Public Mobile Security App

Benefits of a Public App vs. a Private App

Other mobile security solutions use private apps that rely on private APIs, making them much more difficult to deploy and maintain, and risk losing functionality with each OS update. Skycure is the only solution that uses the same public app for both the Free users and for the Enterprise Edition.

Public apps make EVERYTHING easier
Private App
Public App
Adoption
Private App

Users don’t know what is being installed and have no control. May cause resistance and shadow IT.

Public App

Users can be in control, knowing what they are installing and not feeling like IT has just installed a backdoor.

Deployment
Private App

App must be signed and packaged with a developer account, then deployed through an internal app store.

Public App

Users install directly from the app store and log in with enterprise credentials, or EMM can push the app for automatic registration.

Maintenance
Private App

New versions must be re-signed, repackaged and re-deployed manually every time.

Public App

Deployed apps will update automatically over the air, with zero action or attention by users or IT.

Privacy
Private App

Private apps use private APIs that have greater access to personal content and communications on the device.

Public App

Public apps are required by OS vendors to respect user privacy and separation of data and communications.

Productivity
Private App

Apps often consume excessive resources and give unnecessary alerts, interrupting productivity and the mobile experience.

Public App

App uses minimal resources (always <3% battery) and lowest false positives to have zero impact on productivity or mobile experience.

Security
Private App

Focus on business apps and communications in particular. May not secure personal content.

Public App

Protects personal apps and communications in addition to business activities.

Lasting Value

Private API features may be removed by OS vendors at any time, risking enterprise security.

Public APIs are supported from version to version, preserving the functionality and value of the app.
