Add and assign Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) apps with Intune

You can use Intune to add and deploy Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) apps so that end users can receive notifications when a threat is identified in their mobile devices, and to receive guidance to remediate the threats.

Note

This article applies to all Mobile Threat Defense partners.

Before you begin

Complete the following steps in Intune. Make sure you're familiar with the process of:

Tip

The Intune Company Portal works as the broker on Android devices so users can have their identities checked by Azure AD.

Configure Microsoft Authenticator for iOS

For iOS devices, you need the Microsoft Authenticator so users can have their identities checked by Azure AD. Additionally, you need an iOS app configuration policy that sets the MTD iOS app you use with Intune.

See the instructions for adding iOS store apps to Microsoft Intune. Use this Microsoft Authenticator app store URL when you configure App information.

Configure your MTD apps with an app configuration policy

To simplify user onboarding, the Mobile Threat Defense apps on MDM-managed devices use app configuration. For unenrolled devices, MDM based app configuration is not available, so please refer to Add Mobile Threat Defense apps to unenrolled devices.

Lookout for Work app configuration policy

Create the iOS app configuration policy as described in the using iOS app configuration policy article.

SEP Mobile app configuration policy

Use the same Azure AD account previously configured in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Management console, which should be the same account used to sign in to the Intune.

  • Download the iOS app configuration policy file:
    • Go to Symantec Endpoint Protection Management console and sign in with your admin credentials.

    • Go to Settings, and under Integrations, choose Intune. Choose EMM Integration Selection. Choose Microsoft, and then save your selection.

    • Click the Integration setup files link and save the generated *.zip file. The .zip file contains the *.plist file that will be used to create the iOS app configuration policy in Intune.

    • See the instructions for using Microsoft Intune app configuration policies for iOS to add the SEP Mobile iOS app configuration policy.

      • For Configuration settings format, select Enter XML data, copy the content from the *.plist file, and paste its content into the configuration policy body.

Note

If you are unable to retrieve the files, contact Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile Enterprise Support.

Check Point SandBlast Mobile app configuration policy

See the instructions for using Microsoft Intune app configuration policies for iOS to add the Check Point SandBlast Mobile iOS app configuration policy.

  • For Configuration settings format, select Enter XML data, copy the following content and paste it into the configuration policy body.

    <dict><key>MDM</key><string>INTUNE</string></dict>

Zimperium app configuration policy

See the instructions for using Microsoft Intune app configuration policies for iOS to add the Zimperium iOS app configuration policy.

  • For Configuration settings format, select Enter XML data, copy the following content and paste it into the configuration policy body.

    <dict>
    <key>provider</key><string>Intune</string>
    <key>userprincipalname</key><string>{{userprincipalname}}</string>
    <key>deviceid</key>
    <string>{{deviceid}}</string>
    <key>serialnumber</key>
    <string>{{serialnumber}}</string>
    <key>udidlast4digits</key>
    <string>{{udidlast4digits}}</string>
    </dict>
    

Pradeo app configuration policy

Pradeo doesn't support application configuration policy on iOS/iPadOS. Instead, to get a configured app, work with Pradeo to implement custom IPA or APK files that are preconfigured with the settings you want.

Better Mobile app configuration policy

See the instructions for using Microsoft Intune app configuration policies for iOS to add the Better Mobile iOS app configuration policy.

  • For Configuration settings format, select Enter XML data, copy the following content and paste it into the configuration policy body. Replace the https://client.bmobi.net URL with the appropriate console URL.

      <dict>
    <key>better_server_url</key>
    <string>https://client.bmobi.net</string>
    <key>better_udid</key>
    <string>{{aaddeviceid}}</string>
    <key>better_user</key>
    <string>{{userprincipalname}}</string>
    </dict>
    

Sophos Mobile app configuration policy

Create the iOS app configuration policy as described in the using iOS app configuration policy article. For additional information, see Sophos Intercept X for Mobile iOS - Available managed settings in the Sophos knowledge base.

Wandera app configuration policy

Note

For initial testing, use a test group when assigning users and devices in the Assignments section of the configuration policy.

  1. In the RADAR Wandera Portal, click the Add button under Configuration settings format.
  2. Select Activation Profile URL from the list of Configuration Keys. Click OK.
  3. For Activation Profile URL select string from the Value type menu then copy the Shareable Link URL from the desired Activation Profile in RADAR.
  4. In the Intune admin console app configuration UI, select Settings, define Configuration settings format > Use Configuration Designer and paste the Shareable Link URL.

Note

Unlike iOS, you will need to define a unique Android Enterprise app configuration policy for each Wandera Activation Profile. If you don’t require multiple Wandera Activation Profiles, you may use a single Android app configuration for all target devices. When creating Activation Profiles in Wandera, be sure to select “Azure Active Directory” under the Associated User configuration to ensure Wandera is able to synchronize the device with Intune via UEM Connect.

  1. In RADAR Wandera Portal, navigate to Devices > Activations and select any activation profile. Click Deployment Strategies > Managed Devices > Microsoft Intune and locate the iOS App Configuration settings.
  2. Expand the box to reveal the iOS app configuration XML and copy it to your system clipboard.
  3. In Intune admin console app configuration UI Settings, define Configuration settings format > Enter XML data.
  4. Paste the XML in the app configuration text box.

Note

A single iOS configuration policy may be used across all devices that are to be provisioned with Wandera.

Assigning Mobile Threat Defense apps to end users via Intune

To install the Mobile Threat Defense app on the end user device, you can follow the below steps in the Azure portal. Make sure you're familiar with the process of:

Choose the section that corresponds to your MTD provider:

Assigning Lookout for Work

  • Android

  • iOS

    • For detailed instructions to re-sign the Lookout for Work iOS apps, see Lookout for Work iOS app re-signing process on the Lookout website.

    • Enable Azure AD authentication for Lookout for Work iOS app users.

      1. Go to the Azure portal, sign in with your credentials, then navigate to the application page.

      2. Add the Lookout for Work iOS app as a native client application.

      3. Replace the com.lookout.enterprise.yourcompanyname with the customer bundle ID you selected when you signed the IPA.

      4. Add additional redirect URI: <companyportal://code/> followed by a URL encoded version of your original redirect URI.

      5. Add Delegated Permissions to your app.

    • Add the Lookout for Work ipa file.

      • Upload the re-signed .ipa file as described in the Add iOS LOB apps with Intune article. You also need to set the minimum OS version to iOS 8.0 or later.
