When deploying to the Appstore, the published applications are encrypted using Apple's binary encryption scheme. How can i use this for enterprise deployment?

I don't have your answer, but I'd like to know why encrypt your binary.

I agree with you that Apple encrypts binaries on the App Store, but it's not a reason for a developer or an IT administrator to valid the security.
With a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, when cracking an app, you remove the encryption. After, the binary is like a binary for an ad hoc distribution: readable binary and resources.

When deploying Apps to the App Store, all published applications are encrypted using Apple's binary encryption scheme. When an application is synchronized onto the mobile device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod), the decryption key for the application is added to the device’s secure key chain. This is required because the application binaries are also stored in encrypted form. Why does this not work for Enterprise deployment? I want to add this security feature for the deployed apps in my company.
