Email is an indispensable business communication medium. It’s fast, targeted, and makes it simple for the recipient to respond. With mobile devices transforming workplaces, email communication has become more pervasive and valuable. Unfortunately, this transformation has a dangerous side effect: data leakage due to the vulnerability of the mobile devices.
Clearly, email security is the need of the hour. With the arrival of mobility management tools, one practical way of securing email is by managing the mobile devices that access email. You can do just that with Exchange ActiveSync’s for mobile devices.
Give email access only to managed devices.
Exchange ActiveSync is a protocol that facilitates the synchronization of mailboxes, contacts, calendars, and tasks with the mobile devices. Conditional access is an Exchange feature that permits email access only for devices that are enrolled with the mobile device management (MDM) software. This empowers the IT team to manage users who access corporate data.
Prevent data leakage in BYOD environments.
This feature will help organizations that implement BYOD policy. With the BYOD policy, it’s necessary to keep tabs on the devices that access corporate email because the mobile devices are personal. Enforcing conditional access to email is also a good way to get all the devices enrolled with the MDM software.
Manage and secure email.
The MDM software application protects email by securing data access points. If email access is given only when users enroll themselves with the MDM software, it becomes easier to ensure IT security. You can also selectively provide or deny access based on the department or hierarchy.
MDM empowered with Exchange ActiveSync is a powerful combination that can protect company email along with other MDM functions such as containerization, configuring profiles and apps, and others. ManageEngine’s with Exchange’s conditional access ensures that only authorized mobile devices participate in email communications. to see it in action.
