To resolve this issue, install your Enterprise Root CA Certificate on the iOS Device. You can do this manually or by using the Apple Configurator.
The cause of each message is slightly different, but both errors are caused by the inability to verify the authenticity of a certificate or certification authority.
For more information, go to the following Apple website: Digital certificates - iOS Deployment Reference
Or, contact Apple Enterprise Support for help with managing your iOS devices.
