Excerpt from the german IT-Grundschutz Compendium

SYS.3.2.2.A14 – Use of external reputation services for apps

If the administrators of an institution cannot select the permitted apps themselves and users are allowed to install apps on their devices independently, a so-called reputation service should be used. This is an external service that examines apps according to certain criteria and provides the results as a service. The MDM should then use this information to at least restrict the installation of apps.
