Control access to apps based on user & device context

About Context-Aware Access

Context-Aware Access gives you control over which apps a user can access based on their context, such as whether their device complies with your IT policy. Using Context-Aware Access, you can create granular access control policies for apps that access Workspace data based on attributes, such as user identity, location, device security status, and IP address.
