Enable App Scan Integration with WildFire

By enabling App Scan in AirWatch, you can leverage WildFire threat intelligence about apps to detect malware on Android endpoints. When enabled, the AirWatch agent sends the list of apps that are installed on the Android endpoint to AirWatch. This occurs during enrollment and subsequently on any endpoint check-in. AirWatch then periodically queries WildFire for verdicts and can take compliance action on the endpoint based on the verdict.
