Microsoft Intune is the leading Mobile App Management (MAM) systems in the market today. In addition to Microsoft Intune, Microsoft offers its customers a secure browser, Email and document sharing capability. Unlike Microsoft mobile Apps, 3rd party Apps aren’t pre-built to restrict the use of a browser, Email, and document sharing to Microsoft’s secure apps by default. These capabilities are not coded inside non-Microsoft apps.
This Knowledge Base article provides step-by-step instructions for using Appdome’s BoostEMM™ service to add the Microsoft secure browser, Secure Email, and document sharing into non-Microsoft mobile Apps in seconds.
Appdome is a no-code mobile integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that allows users to add a wide variety of features, SDKs and APIs to Android and iOS Apps. Using a simple ‘click to add’ user interface, Appdome allows anyone to easily integrate Microsoft Secure Email, Secure Browsers and document sharing features from Microsoft Intune SDK to any mobile App – instantly, no code or coding required.
Using Appdome’s BoostEMM™ service, organizations can deliver improved enterprise mobility experiences fast, without any development or coding prerequisites. Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. Likewise, there is no requirement to pre-build any part of the Microsoft Intune functionality, make the App interoperable with the Microsoft Intune SDK policy, and with Microsoft Secure Email, Browser, and, document sharing services prior to using Appdome.
Appdome’s BoostEMM™ service restricts apps to use Microsoft’s Secure Email, Secure Browsers and secure document sharing to mobile Apps automatically. Your app will adhere to Intune’s security policy as if the SDK was natively coded to the app.
Furthermore, for iOS apps, Appdome also supports App Extensions, allowing the fused app to use the secured Microsoft apps services inline.
In order to use Appdome’s no-code BoostEMM™ service, you’ll need:
To use Appdome’s BoostEMM™ service, follow these simple steps. Note, the same workflow can be used for either an Android or iOS App.
Please follow these steps to add a mobile app to your Appdome account.
Once you find the .ipa or .apk or .aab file you intend to use, simply select it. The file will be automatically added to the Appdome platform. Once complete, you’ll see a success message and automatically moved to the next step in the workflow.v
Click Management under the Build tab.
Then, find EMM Services under the Enterprise Mobility Management heading.
The technology behind Build My App has two major elements – (1) a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of code sets needed for mobile integrations, and (2) an adaptive code generation engine that can recognize the development environment, frameworks and methods in each App and match the App to the relevant code-sets needed to add the Microsoft Intune SDK and the requested service to the mobile App in seconds.
Congratulations! When your implementation is complete, you’ll see the notice below. You now have a mobile App fully integrated with Intune SDK and will be able to use Microsoft Secure Browser, Secure Email and secure document sharing as you requested.
Appdome is a full-featured mobile integration platform. Within Context™, Appdome users can brand the App, including adding a favicon to denote the new service added to the App.

In order to deploy an Appdome-Build app, it must be signed. Signing iOS apps and Signing Android apps are easy using Appdome. Alternatively, you can use Private Signing, download your unsigned App and sign locally using your own signing methods.
Once you have signed your Appdome-Built app, you can download to deploy it using your distribution method of choice. Appdome allows you to automatically deploy fused apps into the Intune Store. Read here for more on Deploying Apps on Appdome.
In order to verify your built App can use Microsoft’s Secure Browser, Email and Document Sharing, you will need to activate Microsoft Intune Protection Policy on the App using the Intune portal.
A. Choose Client Apps
B. Choose App protection Policies
C. Add a new policy or select an existing one. Make sure to create or select a policy according to the app you have selected (iOS/Android).
2. Go to the targeted Apps section and select your App to apply the policy.
Open the policy settings and set the following configuration:
