  • selectively approve the ActiveSync device

    Hi,

    Is it possible in Exchange Server 2007 to manually approve the device which is ActiveSync to the Exchange Server 2007 ?

    Cheers,

    Albert

    You can consider using AGAT ActiveSync filter that supports several registration process that verify that the user match the deviceID .The product also offers a web admin console to manage users and devices that have registered.In addition you can set content rules according to device types and/or active directory groups to filter Exchange objects , for example blocking attachments of specific type .You can read more on the following site agatsolutions.com/activesync

          I'll get shot down for this one, but this is one of the reasons why I prefer to use an internal CA for ActiveSync. I have complete control over the root certificate, and therefore over who can connect devices. I won't allow people with iPod touches and the like to connect to ActiveSync.

            If you want control over your devices, there is only one answer.

            1. Ban all devices not approved by company.
            2. Turn off ActiveSync on all accounts.
            3. Buy Blackberry devices
            4. Install BES
            5. Give Blackberry devices to users who need them.

            If you have some whiny users (usually with Cx0 in their title) who insist on using the iPhone toy (if you want to do work on a mobile then you use Blackberry) then deploy Good.

            Yes, there is cost involved, but that cost will become tiny compared to the data protection fine when a device with content on it goes walkies or is left in the back of a cab.

            ActiveSync has a long way to go before it provides the level of control that you get from BES/Good.

              albertwt, I'm thinking a bit more based on simon's answer.

              You state you want to selectively approve activesync devices - do you want to approve the devices, or the people who use them?

              If you want to definitely approve individual devices, then go simon's route.

              However, if you want to just limit it to say, CxOs and upper management for instance, but allow them to use whatever, then just disable activesync for everyone, but then enable it for specific users.


              this would, sort of, depending on full disclosure of your requirements, acheive your aim, within the cost you specified

                Yes, that does make sense guys.

                Thanks for the info, some of my users here use BB and they do ask me to forward all excahnge email to their BB email account, at the moment I just realized that the free BES can be deployed to support 15 devices which is more than enough to cover all of my directors + support personel.

                  You are looking at old information.
                  Blackberry Express edition will support more than 15 devices, you can have as many as you like. With that in mind, there is no reason for anyone to be forwarding to Blackberry any longer.
