Deploy and Distribute Ionic App through private app store


We are working on an Ionic App and about to release.
As part of security mechanism, we don;t want to distribute the app through public app stores.
As people can easily reverse engineer the app and get entire app code base which might open threats for security.

Is it possible to use platform, build and then deploy to private app store.
We want to share the app to only our clients who are already in our system.
