Microsoft OneDrive Security?

Looking into OneDrive for Business, for a client with a mobile workforce. I know that, with some cloud-based storage solutions, you can set it up such that when you disable or delete the account, the next time the agent on a client machine tries to sync with the cloud service, it deletes all the locally synced files from that client machine.

I don't know if there is such a capability with OneDrive for Business, and I can't seem to find anything online that even discusses the issue.

Does anyone know, and if so, how?

No, downloaded/synced files remain on the device. But, you have the MDM/Intune policies that allow you to selectively wipe devices for example, which might be a workaround. Or, you can simply block sync unless on a domain machine. Or use IRM to make documents unusable for anyone without active access.

That's very unfortunate, as it's a serious security flaw for a company that is trying to enable the mobile workplace, with BYOD. It means that I can't recommend using it to my clients, if security and privacy are at all a concern. I have other products to offer, but this seemed like a great fit for those already bought into the model. Oh well.
