The ZENworks Mobile Management application for iOS devices is available in the Apple App Store. In accordance with Apple privacy regulations, however, App Store applications do not permit background processing to initiate a connection to a server for the purpose of tracking statistics. Thus, the ZENworks Mobile Management application obtained from the App Store requires iOS users to initiate synchronization of user/device statistics and location data by opening the application at least once a day.
Since Enterprise (proprietary, in-house) applications do not fall under the same privacy regulations as App Store applications, you can opt to distribute the ZENworks Mobile Management application for iOS devices as an Enterprise app. Applications distributed in this manner can run on a device in the background without user interaction. Synchronization of user/device statistics and location data occurs automatically at a frequency determine by the device connection schedule.
Novell hosts an Enterprise app that you can distribute to your users. It is located on the Novell ZENworks Mobile Management application site (https://zmmupdate.novell.com/apps/). Any of your organization's mobile management users can access this site to install the application.
If you have security restrictions or other requirements that are not met by using the Novell-hosted and Novell-signed Enterprise app, you can use the toolkit to generate and distribute your own self-signed Enterprise app.
