LogMeIn has found the bring-your-own-apps trend to be widespread across workplaces in the past, and today the Boston-based software company is introducing a new product to help IT professionals cope. It’s called AppGuru, and its goal is to assist IT pros who are struggling to manage cloud-based applications deployed in the workplace and identify the employees who are using them.
LogMeIn today launched a preview of the new software, which gives admins a centralized point of control for managing various cloud apps and licenses; enforcing company policies and restrictions; and creating or searching for users, who can then be granted or denied access to certain apps and data.
The AppGuru preview currently lets IT pros manage LogMeIn’s own services like its remote screen sharing service join.me or its Dropbox alternative Cubby, as well as popular catalogs like Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps.
LogMeIn says it’ll provision for \”dozens\” more cloud apps in “the coming weeks and months,” and that the service will be offered as a standalone solution as well as an integrated part of join.me and Cubby whenever it exits its beta stages. Specific pricing and official availability details were not announced.
