    iOS app distribution without app store

    iPhone and iPads are widely used for business purposes owing to their reliable performance, enhanced security, and contemporary design that drives engagement from employees as well as customers. The popularity of iOS devices for personal use makes it imperative for businesses to deploy them for work as well since the users are familiar with its interface. According to a study, 79% of mobile devices used in business are iOS devices, preferably the iPhone.

    iOS devices used in business are deployed either to the employees, for connecting remotely or to accomplish several other business or collaboration tasks, or are deployed as single-purpose devices or kiosks. Either way, the company IT teams need to equip these iOS devices with company policies, applying appropriate usage restrictions for security and essential resources to fulfill the designated business purpose. Publishing business-related applications on these devices are critical to accomplishing business-specific tasks.

    Using Scalefusion MDM for iOS streamlines enrollment, deployment, and management of iOS devices used for business. The IT admins can enroll the devices into corporate policies, allow or block websites and load the iOS devices with business apps to achieve targeted business outputs.

    If the business apps to be installed on managed iOS devices are available on the App Store, they can be instantly rolled out on the managed device inventory using Apple VPP (Volume Purchase Program). But if the business applications are private, bespoke, and to be distributed without App Store, Scalefusion provisions the same using Enterprise Store.
