How Do I Configure MobileIron to Integrate with AeroFS?

MobileIron reinforces AeroFS on iOS and Android with additional security features such as the following:

  • at rest encryption
  • remote wipe
  • disabled screen capture
  • passcode requirements
  • copy/paste and open in restrictions

The AeroFS for MobileIron app is available for iOS and Android. AeroFS is compatible with MobileIron deployments with AppTunnel enabled for third-party apps. AeroFS mobile apps must be able to reach the Sentry Server over port 4433.

Follow these steps to configure your existing MobileIron deployment to support the AeroFS mobile applications.

  1. Enable AppTunnel for third-party and in-house apps on the MobileIron Core server
  2. Enable AppTunnel on the Sentry Server
  3. Add an AppTunnel Service for AeroFS to your Sentry Server with the following properties:
    • Service Name: aerofs
    • Sever Auth: Pass Through
    • Server List: <AeroFS appliance domain name>:4433
