Key Vault removes the pain of managing certificates and keys, giving back time to focus on more valuable tasks.

SPARC has released an update to Knappsack, a mobile application management platform, that focuses on automated iOS app signing and overall performance improvements. Knappsack’s new functionality, called Key Vault, now allows developers to upload and sign iOS apps without needing access to the certificates and keys. This provides managers a more secure and easy-to-use distribution platform for their digital content.

Knappsack has released a major update to its mobile application management platform, which now provides automated “time-of-upload” iOS app signing. Key Vault allows managers to store Apple® enterprise distribution certificates and keys in one location. Developers can then use Key Vault to sign apps when they are uploading them without needing access to the keys themselves. This greatly simplifies the signing process for developers, while at the same time gives IT managers a more secure environment.

“Knappsack’s Key Vault eases the burden on IT managers who control access to these valuable keys, certificates, and passwords. Key Vault ensures that managers aren’t bottlenecks for developers trying to release apps by allowing them to automate the signing of apps during upload,” said Steve Woodruff, Knappsack Product Owner.

This added level of security gives managers peace-of-mind if they are using a high volume of certificates and keys across a large organization. “The use of mobile apps is skyrocketing, and organizations struggle to make it easy for developers to deploy their content quickly. Key Vault removes the pain of managing certificates and keys, giving back time to focus on more valuable tasks,” said Dayel Ostraco, SPARC’s Mobile Evangelist.

Key Vault is now available as a feature in Knappsack, along with new onboarding functionality and performance improvements.
