Add iOS apps to the deny list (Cortado Server only)

In order to protect corporate data, Cortado Server allows you to create a deny list of apps they find most threatening. With the deny list for apps you can prevent security-critical or unwanted apps from being installed on mobile devices.

Note! This option is not available for devices that have been embedded via User Enrollment.
  • Wählen Sie in der Managementkonsole Control Panel→ Apps & Docs→ Deny List Apps.
  • You can set up an app deny list for:
    • individual users: via Control Panel→ Users→ Deny List Apps,
    • a Group: via Control Panel→ Groups→ Deny List Apps,
    • all users: via Control Panel→ Apps→ Deny List Apps.
  • Select one or more user/s or group/s and then tap on Add (arrow in illus.).

Select one or more user/s or group/s and then tap on Add

  • Enter the app name. Wildcards (*) can be used for the app names.

The following apps have been added to the deny list for the following users (example):

  • for user11: App1 (user11 is a member of the group Sales-Group.)
  • global: App2
  • for the group Marketing-Group: App3
  • for the group Sales-Group: App4

You can see the results in the following illustrations. Under both Users, as well as under Groups, you can see which apps are denied globally (Globally Deny List Apps, here: App2). On the right, you will also see the apps that are blocked for each respective group (App3 and App4).

In the following illustration you can see the apps that are blocked for individual users. These are firstly, the global (here: App2, left), then those blocked for the group (App4 for user11, as a member of the Sales-Group) and those blocked for the individual user (App1 for user11).

For user16 (member of the Marketing-Group) app3 is denied.
