Re: Vetting Process?
The people operating these marketplaces are criminals.  They have elaborate schemes to pay people to impersonate companies and fraudulently obtain enterprise distributions certificates.  Our research shows that companies in China and the United Arab Emirates have been faked, and those identities used to get around Apple's vetting process.

Re: Vetting Process?
Let's say your company is Acme, Inc. and you develop apps. you apply to Apple for an enterpise cert so your Acme employees can use it for installing "enterprise approved" apps. What then prevents you from using that for others? Outside of the agreement you accepted when getting the cert from Apple...nothing. There probably is little monitoring of how pwoplw are using these certs once they get them, see no eveil, hear no eveil, perhaps? At this point, its hard to say whether Apple should be doing more, but my bet would be they have a process deficiency that needs to be solved now.

Re: Vetting Process?
I just hope that when people using these, and other unapproved stores, get malware, they blame themselves, rather than Apple. There is a very good reason why iOS is so secure from malware, as opposed to Android. That is, other than the poor way that Android itself was written.

Vetting Process?
How are these enterprise certificates provided? I would imagine by Apple but is there a stringent vetting process in place to provide these certs to an enterprise? This article would make me believe there is not.
