About No Code Multiple Authentication Profiles on Appdome
Adding multiple authentication profiles to a single app is an extremely important use case for security conscious organizations. These organizations often use different authentication methods or identity providers to gate access to specific IPs and sensitive information. In many cases, business to business, business to enterprise, and other Android and iOS mobile apps aren’t built to access protected resources. Moreover, mobile apps aren’t designed to use multiple or different authentication methods or SSO providers depending on the app’s use. The big question is, how does an app maker or enterprise organization allow multiple or different authentication methods or SSO providers per protected resource or multiple protected resources?
