You can use
BlackBerry UEMto distribute hosted
Androidapps to users' devices.
BlackBerry Protectadds a new layer of security to this feature by giving
UEMthe ability to scan hosted
Androidapps (.apk) that are uploaded to
UEMto detect potential malware.
When you upload an app to the management console, the app hash is sent to

CylanceINFINITYanalyzes the app files and generates a confidence score that it returns to
The app appears in the app list while the scan is in progress. If the app is not identified as malware, it remains on the app list. If the app is identified as malware, the app is automatically removed from the app list. If an app is assigned to a user or group while the scan is in progress, it will not be sent to devices until the scan is complete.
CylanceINFINITYretains app binaries and a corresponding confidence score for security purposes. The confidence score for an app can change if the same app is processed again. Whenever you upload a new version of an app,
UEMsends the app files to
CylanceINFINITYfor analysis and scoring.
