Exchange 2010 ActiveSync Policies

Posted on 2013-11-19
Last Modified: 2013-11-28

Does anyone happen to know whether or not you can restrict access to certain URL's, or even better create a white-list of allowed URL's on a handset via Exchange 2010 ActiveSync policies?

No - it's not designed to do that at all.

The policies are designed to control device access to the Exchange server, not access from the handheld to the web.

Not with the default tools installed on Exchange.  Possibly with 3rd party tools, but I don't use any so can't suggest what would or wouldn't work I'm afraid.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Thanks Alan

Appreciate your help on this.

We also found parental controls are present on a Z10 (http://docs.blackberry.com/en/smartphone_users/deliverables/47561/als1342454642269.jsp) so are looking into using these.

Parental controls are also present on iPhones too.  Not sure about Androids.

The controls are managed on a phone by phone basis.
