have various strategies for distributing mobile apps to their users. Many enterprises distribute apps via a Mobile Device Management (MDM) platform, these provide precise control over how and to whom the app is deployed. In addition to controlling app delivery, MDM platforms let you customize the Tableau sign-in experience, configure app policies, and provide additional security and

governance controls. They can also make the sign in process easier. In this scenario, a user with a device enrolled in their organization’s MDM platform would go to the internal app store provided by the MDM platform and download the app from that catalog. To manage Tableau mobile deployments, we recommend using mobile device management (MDM) or mobile application management (MAM). The following are supported mobile management systems: Blackberry Dynamics, VMware Workspace ONE, MobileIron, Citrix Endpoint Management (formerly XenMobile),and Microsoft Intune. Users will see touchoptimized views on Apple iPad and iPhone, Android phone and tablet, as well as mobile browsers. For more information, visit Tableau Mobile Deployment Guide. For organizations who haven’t invested in MDM, users can simply download the Tableau Mobile app from public app stores, and then connect directly to the service. 116 Version: Current Tableau Software Tableau Blueprint Help Securing Mobile Data Security is paramount in any mobile deployment. Mobile devices will be out and about in the wild. They will be used on different networks. They may even include users’ personal devices if your organization supports a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy. It’s critical that your data remain secure both in transit and at-rest. If you use Tableau Online, we securely connect to data for you so there’s no additional effort on your part. Tableau Online by default leverages SSL communications and the Tableau Mobile app supports it by default. If you use Tableau Server, SSL should be configured . This ensures that all traffic coming to and from your Server is encrypted and helps avoid potential man-in-themiddle attacks. You must alsodetermine how your Tableau Server will be reachable by a mobile device if the device isn’t on the same network or the internet. There are two options to tunnel through your corporate firewall to reach the server: connect via a VPN, or use a reverse-proxy server. The choice of which option is best for your organization depends on many factors, such as whether you have an existing solution (VPN or proxy) that you can use, licensing costs, security considerations, and user experience. Ensure that the cross-fuctional project team discusses this topic and understands the options. The final piece of security involves data-at-rest, which Tableau takes care of for you. All information that gets persisted on a device, such as metadata about content, snapshot images, and access tokens, is securely stored using native OS encryption. As a best practice, consider regularly confirming overall data security by having a third-party security specialist audit your organization. Sign-in Seamlessly Before users can
