Hello AppArmor Network,

We sincerely hope that all of you and yours are safe and healthy during these hectic times.

Since our last blog post, our team have been working hard to provide our organizations with the most valuable software possible in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. This has included improved support hours, professionally designed content, and more. Today in particular, we wanted to highlight 3 important items we think you should be aware of:

Contact Tracing  (Video Update May 7 2020): We've gotten numerous questions from our partner organizations regarding what we are / will be doing regarding contact tracing functionality in our apps. As such, our Co-Founder and CTO Chris Sinkinson put together a quick video explaining the concept of contact tracing and AppArmor's current position on the topic. You can find it here.

User Self Assessments: Another popular question we've received is regarding whether or not organizations can use our safety app as a tool for users to self assess whether or not they are fit to return to work / campus / generally be on-premises. The good news: we've got a great option for our customers that comes completely free of charge. Check out our video on self assessment provided by our other Co-Founder and CEO David Sinkinson here.

Case Study: Finally, we've prepared a case study on how the AppArmor platform was used in the first weeks of the pandemic. It was an incredible test of our system and we're thrilled to report that everything worked as intended. We reached over 5 million unique endpoints in a very short amount of time. Read more about that here.

That's all for now! If you have any questions or need assistance do not hesitate to contact your AppArmor representative or AppArmor Support (

Till next time,
