The IBM Mobile Device Manager Team is pleased to announce the release of a 
Mobile Device Management SHA256 Patch. 

This release adds enhanced security features and SHA256 download support 
to your IEM deployment.  Enhanced security options include SHA256 security 
at the platform level and for verifying downloads from external sites. 

Implementation of the SHA256 Patch is recommend for all MDM customers. 

Note to Customers with Android Endpoints: Enhanced Security for Android 
devices is not supported at this time. If you have Android devices in your 
deployment, we recommend that you do not enable enhanced security when

the BES Support site.

must be installed on a relay. However, previous installations on the root 
server will still function and upgrades will still work.
