Question: Remote workers in my company access application stores through their mobile devices. How can I ensure app store security for my users?

The best approach is to deploy a mobile device management system that allows the capability to block access to public application stores, as well as allows for a whitelist of allowed applications. Depending on the number of mobile devices and the application requirements, it is best to operate a company-owned application store. This has many advantages and offers the best control overall.
