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.
Play Integrity API
By leveraging Google’s Play Integrity API, one can ensure the trustworthiness of their enterprise application on Android devices. This API allows app developers to verify that their apps are running on genuine, unaltered devices and are not being impersonated by malicious actors.
The SAP BTP SDK for Android enables you to easily integrate this API, thus safeguarding your enterprise application and its users. In the event of a security breach, the app developers can now restrict access to sensitive features. Alternatively, if the access risk is deemed too high, you have the option to deny access to the app entirely. By utilizing the SDK, your administrator gains access to a centralized user interface for monitoring all security breaches effectively.
