Mobile Email Security and Controls

We were asked this question:

I'm looking for a cloud based app that allows employees to go in, read and respond to outlook mail and calendar without having it be physical on their phone.
Here's why...
Security and theft protection of IP.
So let's say they are terminated, I just turn off their access to the app/SAAS that's mobile enabled.
I'm trying to avoid having to purchase 10 cell phones and the service associated with them which requires people to carry 2 phones.


They use Office365.  

Thanks in advance.

Not sure what you mean by 'physical on their phone'. Also, Office 365 *IS* a SaaS, all you need to do when a user leaves the company is to disable his account/remove the license (and optionally block access to all email protocols).

Thanks for the reply.  

They are concerned with company emails, calendar events and contacts being stored on the mobile device because that poses security risks.  

when an employee is terminated, do the employees need to agree to a remote wipe of the mobile device upon termination?  (That would be in the BYOD Policy---another topic)

 They want assurance that company data is not stored in any way on the device. (Lost, stolen, termination, etc) So how can  this be handled?

There is selective wipe now with the MDM features in O365, only company data can/will be wiped. Intune offers even more control on top of that. Read here:
