Organizations have come to trust SAP Mobile Services for their evolving security needs. The latest release of the SAP BTP SDK for iOS places a special emphasis on introducing new security-focused features, enabling you to enhance the security of your ecosystem even more.
In an increasingly BYOD scenario, the app you build is running on devices that you have minimal control over. While you don’t want to limit your end-users from utilizing their own devices, you do want to guarantee that your app can only access enterprise data when running on a trusted device.
For example, now, if your app is running on a rooted device, you can detect the same and initiate the required measures.
Regulate data flow in the app by restricting cut, copy & paste. Enable the checkbox in Admin UI to prevent end-users from copying or pasting data. Designed to enhance user experience while maintaining security, end-users are allowed to copy and paste within the app’s screens.
App Attestation Improvements
SAP BTP SDK for iOS 9.1 introduced seamless integration with Apple’s App Attest service. In version 9.2, developers can now test this integration on both iOS Simulator and Mac Catalyst platforms.
Multi-User Mode (Offline)
The SAP BTP SDK for iOS has long supported the core enterprise mobile use-case of Shared Devices, where one device (in offline mode) is shared among multiple employees based on their shift time. In the latest release, you can turn on the feature by simply enabling a checkbox and letting the assistant take care of the rest.
The new version of the SDK continues to bring more Swift & UI-Kit-based controls, such as paging support for data, step progress indicator and character counter. You can continue to choose from an ever-expanding range of thoughtfully designed rules that will enhance your enterprise application’s functionality.
