What are AppConnect-enabled apps?

AppConnect-enabled apps, also known as AppConnect apps, are apps that have been containerized using one of the following methods:

  • wrapping (iOS and Android)
  • AppConnect SDK (iOS)
  • AppConnect Cordova Plugin (iOS)

You configure and distribute AppConnect apps to devices on the Ivanti unified endpoint management (UEM) platform. The Ivanti UEM are Ivanti Neurons for MDM and MobileIron Core. From the device user perspective, AppConnect apps are called secure apps. Secure apps can share data only with other secure apps. Unsecured apps cannot access the data.
