Today with the release of iOS 17.4, we are excited to share that Meraki Systems Manager will now report on app installation distributor source! SM now reports the app's installation source such as: App Store, Test Flight, side loaded, or any custom alternative third party app store identifier. Extremely useful for security in European deployments where alternative third party App Stores are now allowed. To further enhance the security, use a Meraki SM Security Policy to define your organization's allowed app store distributors & secure devices in bulk.
