Sophos Mobile Control - Frequently asked questions about the "Per App VPN" feature

I have applied a "Per app VPN" profile for iOS and deployed it. But the app does not use it. Why not?
The "Per app VPN" feature does not support the built-in VPN functionality as provided in iOS. Therefore, you cannot use this one.

What is required so successfully use it?
You must have installed a VPN client on the iOS device which supports the "Per app VPN" feature like the F5 Edge client.
If this is installed, you must deploy a VPN configuration for this client and in addition specify the VPN profile to be used by the app.

How do I configure an app to use a specific per app VPN configuration?
To specify the VPN configuration, go to the application package and edit it.
Click the 'Show' button next to 'Settings and VPN'. In the dropdown box, choose the 'Per app VPN' configuration the app should use and press the apply button. Save the application package.

Which VPN Client does Sophos Mobile Control currently support?
As of now the only VPN client being supported is Cisco AnyConnect
