Introducing Workspace ONE Boxer 5.9 for iOS

The VMware Workspace ONE team is excited to announce that Workspace ONE Boxer 5.9 for iOS is publicly available.


What’s New

  • BINXI-4634: NIAP Certification
  • BINXI-7360 FastSync (Key Sync Escrow)
    • To improve the background syncing and speed of subsequent syncs, we are introducing the option called FastSync which sends down the key to decrypt the key opening the encrypted Boxer database.
    • To enable FastSync:
      • Key: ENSEnableKeyEscrow (int)
      • Value: 0 (default, for disabled) or 1 (to enable)
    • To set the expiration time in hours where Boxer will no longer get the key use below
      • Key: ENSKeyEscrowExpiry (int)
      • Value: 48 (default)
    • To standardize the configuration of our productivity applications, In the near future Boxer will be defaulting the key AppForceActivateSSO (bool) to true. Please make sure to test that your environment still works with this key enabled before we change the default. Please test Login flows, passcode, and copy-in restriction. More information on AppForceActivateSSO can be found in the Boxer Admin guide.
  • BETA BINXI-10707: Enterprise Content in Boxer
    Note: this feature is still in BETA and we are making constant improvements. Any and all feedback is welcome.
    • This feature requires the key AppForceActivateSSO to be set to “true”.
    • This feature brings parts of the Workspace ONE Content app into Boxer for viewing attachments, attaching to emails and saving from emails to online repositories.
    • If you have Workspace ONE Content setup, the same repositories will show up.
    • If you do not have Content setup, please setup the repositories in the Console.
    • Please contact us at for the KVP if you would like to try out enterprise content.
