In recent years, both Apple and Google app stores have introduced new requirements for a trusted security certificate to connect the SAP Business One mobile app to the applicable SAP server. While increased security can be a good thing, keeping your data safe, it also introduces more complexity to your IT environment. Depending on the size of your organization and the dedicated IT resources you have available, this seemingly small change can actually have a big impact.
What Does This Requirement Mean for You?
Acquiring and installing a trusted certificate on your servers and getting it working with SAP Business One can be tricky and tedious. Here's what needs to happen:
- You need to purchase a certificate from a third-party provider.
- Install and test the certificate in your environment. This usually requires some coordination between your IT team and ours (we estimate up to 4 hours of consulting time).
Important: This process must be done every one, two or three years, depending on the period that you purchase the certificate for.
Let Us Help
If you choose to purchase the certificate yourself, you eat up some of your IT personnel’s time, especially if they aren't familiar with the requirements and configuration. That’s why we offer an alternative to the DIY approach. Our simple, no-hassle subscription option includes configuration and maintenance of the SAP Business One trusted certificate service specifically for your company, for as long as you subscribe to the service. If, at some point in the future, you decide you have the resources to acquire and maintain your own trusted certificate, you can simply unsubscribe from the service. No muss, no fuss.
Our goal is to get you up and running with the mobile app as quickly and easily as possible, so you can focus on running your business wherever you are. If you're interested in the subscription option or need help setting this up on your own, contact our Support Team we’ll be in touch.
