Secure hardware, software, and services.
iOS devices seamlessly integrate hardware, software, and services that work together for a secure and transparent user experience. This lets IT protect the entire system — without impacting the great capabilities that make iOS incredibly easy to work with.
We believe that protecting corporate data is as important as protecting user privacy. iOS works tirelessly to do both — ensuring corporate and personal data is managed and secured seamlessly.
iOS is designed to proactively prevent app security issues and reduce the potential damage of attacks. Features like mandatory code signing, runtime protections, app sandboxing, entitlement declarations, and the App Store review process ensure the integrity of iOS apps.
In-depth data integrity.
iOS is designed to seamlessly protect app data. If a third-party app needs to access information other than its own, it does so only by using application programming interfaces (APIs) and services provided by iOS. System files and resources are also shielded from a user's apps.
A protected ecosystem.
Whether deploying off-the-shelf or custom-built apps, IT can be assured apps are valid and not malicious. As part of the security ecosystem, Apple requires a Developer Program certificate, review of App Store submissions, an in-house app provisioning process, as well as mandatory code signing.
iOS provides extensive tools and methods for securing apps. From the keychain services framework in the SDK, to the Touch ID framework for third-party apps, enterprise single sign-on, and managed apps with MDM, developers and IT have the best tools to deliver secure apps for users.
