Hello,

     Is there a service provider that allows administrators to manage what iOS and Android mobile phone applications can be blocked from syncing with the user's Microsoft Exchange email accounts for work? I would like all users to only be able to sync their work email accounts with one app that will make them enter a password or pin every time they want to access their work email accounts for security purposes.

Satya Nadella wants to know what took you so long? (Joke, sorry)

 

Microsoft has been pinning their hopes on this very scenario. The only solution I know is really a compromise to something IT found acceptable: They created an app specific to this single purpose for their employees on the level where BYOD is not an option (departmental heads and higher are issued Windows Mobile devices). Like I said it's kind of a solution in that it allows IT some form of control that's acceptable rather than moving the company to Windows Mobile across the board which gives you the amount of control and level of security IT wants.

 

Sorry if that's not the simple solution you were hoping for. As long as Microsoft still has real hope of getting traction in the mobile OS marketplace you're unlikely to see it from them
