Apperian® Inc., the mobile application management and security company, is offering day-of support to help developers and enterprises ensure their enterprise mobile apps and users aren't disrupted as they update to iOS 9. With significant changes to app signing and deploying to enterprise users in iOS 9, Apperian is also making resources with best practices available to help those being impacted to better understand and prepare for a smooth transition to the latest iOS release.
"Each mobile operating system update brings new capabilities that help advance how mobility can be used in the enterprise, but the updates also come with challenges that can be difficult for developers and IT departments to prepare for," said Mark Lorion, Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Product at Apperian. "Our product teams understand this at the deepest level and we have a track record of helping our customers and their users manage transitions smoothly and quickly to keep getting the most out of their mobile initiatives."
With Apple's move toward requiring all enterprise apps and their associated extensions to be signed with explicit provisioning profiles, the use of 'Wildcard' profiles may interrupt certain features of an app under iOS 9. Apperian's platform allows enterprises to easily make this transition by upgrading app policies code-free, automating re-signing with an explicit provisioning profile, and then notifying users of the updated version available for download for both managed and unmanaged devices.
