Your App Protection Console is a cloud based console interface. Your App Protection Console contains several views that display uploaded (telemetry) data from your customer's mobile devices which are running apps that are integrated with Symantec's Mobile App Risk Detection iOS framework or Android library.
The views available from the console are as follows:
Your customer's mobile devices, with apps integrated with the Mobile App Risk Detection iOS framework or Android library, upload results from threat scans on a scheduled basis. This telemetry data is written to a back-end server and displayed in the Symantec Mobile App Protection Console.
Zero-state refers to an App Protection Console with no uploaded telemetry data.
If you login to your App Protection Console and have not integrated your apps with the Mobile App Risk Detection iOS framework or iOS library, your App Protection Console view is in zero-state.
