Best Practice to only allow Company phones on Exchange Server

Hello,

I've read a few articles but am looking for the best practice or best solution to block non company phones from our exchange server (2012). We utilize android devices, and only want approved devices to access email (no iphone, ipad, etc). Is there a good way to do this using just exchange? We are looking into Airwatch as an mdm as well.

Thank You for your time.

Yes. But you need to manually allow them one by one.

You have to enable Quarantine for Mobile devices in Exchange Server 2013.

Before enabling the quarantine policy, you can whitelist the mobile devices owned by your company using cmdlet command.

There's no such a thing as "Exchange Server 2012".

The versions are here:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh135098%28v=exchg.150%29.aspx

Exchange server 2010, 2013 or 2016.
2012 is the Operating system, and that's a different history (Windows server 2008r2,2012,2012r2 and 2016).


For exchange 2010 you can have something like this:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-phone/cc182235(v=technet.10)

And for exchange server 2013 or 2016:

And
Enforce password on the device. (also in that link).

I apologize, I meant to type Windows Server 2012 and Exchange 2013, Possible Implementation of Airwatch as our MDM.  I read the articles but not 100% sure this will solve our problem, I will do some testing today, thanks for the quick reply.
