Core Capabilites of Workspace ONE for Developers

The Workspace ONE developer toolsets provide several capabilities and support many different use cases. The most common features are listed here along with best practices for each and supporting tutorials.

Prevent Screenshot

For app usage in highly regulated industries, it may be important for IT to prevent applications from openly sharing data with each other. With the Prevent Screenshot capability, apps and devices containing sensitive content can be restricted from taking screenshots in order to discourage easy transfer of app content.

App Passcode

For security reasons, enterprises may want to prevent continuous access to an app without periodic authentication.

An app passcode can ensure the app is only accessible to the entitled user and that the user identity is maintained over time. A biometric, such as TouchID, can typically be implemented as a layer above the PIN code to...

App Tunneling

An application may require access to web services residing behind a corporate firewall.

A traditional full device VPN solution is not adequate due to manual steps required to enable the VPN on the device, and the security exposure by allowing personal apps the same access to the VPN as corporate apps. A more secure, seamless, targeted...

Prevent Copy and Paste

For apps used in more regulated industries, it may be important for IT to prevent applications from openly sharing data with each other.

Copy / Paste restrictions can prevent data in a corporate app from being easily transferred to unmanaged or personal applications to protect against data leakage

Prevent App Backup

Device users may want to backup their device data to later restore the data on a different or new device for various reasons.

IT may need to protect the data in the corporate set of apps from being backed up so company data cannot be transferred to a new unmanaged device or backup service

Encryption

For apps with sensitive data or files, you may want to encrypt the persisted contents of the app in case the file system is compromised.

Extraction of the persistent storage will only expose encryption ciphertext as opposed to the readable data.

Managed Open In

For apps that are used in heavily regulated industries, it may be important for IT to prevent applications from openly sharing data with each other. Apps containing sensitive files can be controlled to only share files across managed corporate applications to prevent private information from leaking into unmanaged apps.

App Configuration

An app may require seed information for initial configuration or updated configurations throughout the course of its lifecycle.

For example, the backend server URL of an application can be seeded to the application during install so the app can auto-configure with minimal user input. With the Workspace ONE platform, you can create...

Single Sign On OpenID Connect

End users want easy access to their apps and data, and organizations want to avoid the security risks and helpdesk support tickets that come from different passwords and authentication logic for different apps. You can support both groups while decreasing the time it takes to develop apps by relying on Workspace ONE for Single Sign On (SSO)....
