Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

The iOS business container controls the data flow between the personal and corporate space on iOS devices by means of specific advanced restrictions. Please navigate to Policies-> iOS-> Security-> Business Container and click Configure to set up the business container.

The restrictions under the business container are:

  • Prevent the documents from the managed source being opened in an unmanaged destination.
  • Prevent the documents from the unmanaged source being opened in a managed destination.
  • Block the managed apps from writing to unmanaged contact accounts.
  • Block the unmanaged apps reading from managed contact accounts.
  • Prevent the sharing of managed documents via Airdrop.

Once the restrictions are set up, associate targets and save the policy.

Please check our help doc on iOS BYOD management for more info.
