Build breakthrough apps for your employees.

Learn about in-house app development for iPhone and iPad.

Secure your app.

When you're building in-house apps for your employees, chances are there is sensitive corporate data that needs to be secured and protected. To support the process of securing data within your application, iOS includes a “sandboxed” approach to application runtime protection and requires application signing to ensure that applications cannot be tampered with. iOS also has a secure framework that facilitates secure storage of credentials in an encrypted keychain. And there are high-level frameworks that can be used to encrypt application data and provide secure networking out of the box. All of these capabilities in concert with the existing device-level IT policies to provide a secure foundation without impacting the user experience.
