Adding a secure web app to Symantec Mobility: Suite
Last Updated November 09, 2015
Symantec Mobility: Suite lets you add a secure web app to your app store. A secure web app is a shortcut to a webpage, but it has additional security features that a regular web app does not. A web app is launched in a Mobility Suite browser (or "sandbox") on the end user's device (not the device's default browser). You must apply an app policy for a secure web app and you must secure it with a provisioning or keystore certificate.
To add a secure web app, you'll need the following items:
When you create a secure web app, you must apply an app policy to it. Make sure that you have already set up your app policy.
You can select an existing key or create your own from Mobility Manager.
