enterprise app store (enterprise application store)
An enterprise app store
is a web portal through
which end users can access, download and install
corporate-approved software applications.
The idea of an enterprise application store arose in response to consumer-oriented app stores,
such as Apple's App Store and Google Play. By deploying corporate software through an app
store, an information technology (IT) department can manage desktop, mobile, cloud and Web app
software licenses (EULAs) and
maintain a level of control over security.
Many vendors, such as Symantec, VMware and Citrix Systems, offer products designed to help
organizations create an enterprise application store. An organization could also build its own
enterprise app store in-house.
