With great gains come greater pains!

A prevalent example of this is mobile devices, which give users greater freedom to access and share data from anywhere, anytime, on any device. But for IT Administrators, it means a greater amount of time spent managing these devices—especially in organizations where BYOD is the norm.

That’s where Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions come in. Filr, for example, has been integrated with MobileIron for quite some time, helping many of our common customers to secure data access on mobile devices.

For customers who don’t use MobileIron as MDM, here’s some great news: Micro Focus Filr mobile apps now support AppConfig and ZENworks.

Admins can remotely pre-configure managed configuration parameters such as Filr server details, user name etc. This ensures that these parameters are applied automatically as soon as the user launches the Filr app on a mobile device, thereby giving the users a seamless experience in using the app.

AppConfig is a community that focuses on providing tools and best practices around native capabilities in mobile operating systems. Their aim is to enable a more consistent, open, and simple way to configure and secure mobile apps, in order to increase mobile adoption in the business environment.

Users benefit from instant mobile productivity and a seamless out-of-the box experience. Businesses benefit from secure, work-ready apps that require minimal setup and enable them to leverage existing investments in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), VPN, and identity solutions. Ultimately, your apps are simpler to configure, secure, and deploy.

So, if your organization is using an MDM/EMM solution that supports AppConfig (, you can now manage the Filr mobile app much more easily and securely.
