Root certificate configuration (iOS Sophos container policy)

With the Root certificate configuration you install a root certificate onto devices. This certificate is available to the Sophos Secure Email and Sophos Secure Workspace apps if they are installed in the Sophos container.

The certificate is available to other configurations of the same policy. If you require certificates in other policies, you must upload them again.


The Sophos container policy is only available for Sophos Central accounts created before October 1, 2022 and for accounts migrated from an on-premise installation of Sophos Mobile.

Setting Description
File Select Upload a file and then select a PKCS #12 (.pfx) certificate file.
Certificate name The name of the certificate.

Sophos Mobile reads the name from the certificate file.


You can drag a certificate from File Explorer to the File area to upload it.
