Creating Blacklisted Apps for iOS (Cortado Server only)

In order to protect corporate data, Cortado Server allows you to create a blacklist of apps they find most threatening. With the blacklist 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→ Blacklisted Apps.
  • You can set up an app blacklist for:
    • individual users: via Control Panel→ Users→ Blacklisted Apps,
    • a Group: via Control Panel→ Groups→ Blacklisted Apps,
    • all users: via Control Panel→ Apps→ Blacklisted Apps.
  • Select one or more user/s or group/s and then tap on Add(arrow in illus.).

The following apps have been blacklisted 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 blacklisted globally (Globally Blacklisted Apps, here: App2). On the right, you will also see the apps that are blocked for each respective group (App3 and App4).

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