The AppConfig Community

What is the App Config Community? A community focused on providing tools and best practices around native capabilities in mobile operating systems in order to enable a more consistent, open and simple way to configure and secure mobile apps to increase mobile computing adoption in business.

Ultimately, your apps are simpler to configure, secure and deploy. The AppConfig Community is sponsored by industry leading device management vendors:

IBM MaaS360, Jamf, Mobikeiron, VMware, SOTI, BlackBerry, Cisco, Meraki, SAP

Security Policies & Access Control: Restrict apps to run only on approved devices and enforce security policies such as: required encryption and data loss prevention at the app level.

App Tunnel: Selectively enable approved apps to use an app tunnel to connect to back-end and corporate networks.

Single Sign-On:Enable single sign-on across enterprise apps, leveraging existing identity management solutions.
