How to secure device using ActiveSync from Syncing with unauthorzied devices with same OS platform
Posted on 2014-01-08
I've Google this question in different ways, but didn't find the answer I'm looking for, so I thought I would try here.
We are in the midst of discussions on ActiveSync usage, as whether to move away from strictly BBs and BES environment that we have now, which is working fine as is... but...
We recently migrated to using Office 365 and I've got all our BBs now activated in the Blackberry Cloud Services that is integrated with Office 365. We have users requesting BB10 devices(Q10/Z10), currently BBCS with Office 365 doesn't provide Enterprise Activation for BB10 devices. I have not been able to get any info as to if and when RIM plans to upgrade their BBCS to BES10 platform. So if we let Users get BB10 devices we have to Use ActiveSync protocol, and with that, Users are asking if we'd consider another platform such as IPhone or Android.
Question that came out of that is if a Users has a Corporate Authorized IPhone for Example: also owns a Personal IPad(popular). Are we able to prevent them from Syncing the two iOS devices? If I understand correctly, if they are fully Synced the email from the authorized phone can find it way over to the Unauthorized personal IPad if the User was to enable Syncing of devices, am I correct in that assumption? and if Yes, this is possible with iOS and perhaps even Android devices? Is there a way for us to prevent Syncing of Devices in that way, via ActiveSync policies or on the Phone itself?
