Cisco Debits New Enetrprise-Class AppHQ

On June 29, 2011, Cisco unveiled AppHQ, a new method for developers to create and manage tablet applications for the Cisco Cius. This ‘application ecosystem’ includes several powerful tools to test and market enterprise-class applications, as well as ability for IT managers to choose which applications can be accessed on the tablet device.

Every application that appears on Cisco AppHQ will have to go through the Cisco validation process, even if it is a third-party Android application. This will help to ensure the quality level of the applications and let managers know if the utility is appropriate for their business.

Cisco AppHQ will also host a private application store that will allow businesses to design their own storefront. They can add a specific logo, icon, and color scheme so that everything is customized to their needs. The private storefront will also provide a specialized means for companies to distribute applications to their employees.

Another feature of the Cisco AppHQ is the AppHQ Manager. This tool will allow IT managers to decide which downloaded applications can be used by employees. They can grant and deny accessed based on specific criteria like type, category, and where the application came from. This should help to maintain security and lessen the possibility of unnecessary applications being downloaded onto the system.
