Basic Activesync Security Policies to Employ
If you are wondering what type of Activesync security policies would be best to employ when coordinating the delivery of company email to specific handheld devices, there are a few basic points that almost any company in this situation should consider for best results. To begin, any Activesync security policies that you employ should always be equally applied across the entire network for the sake of fairness, transparency, and ease of use. This makes things a bit easier to get back on track in the event of a snafu, as well.
Once you have internalized the previous point, your Activesync security policies
should always include spam filtration whenever possible. Opening a virus laden email on any external device can potentially destroy not just the device in question, but can compromise your entire network as well. Make sure that your Activesync security policies take the threat of spam very seriously, and that the program itself automatically updates itself as needed on all devices sans user input. This allows your Activesync security policies to be followed without interruption across your network for as long as possible.
Additionally, you can set your Activesync security policies to require passwords in order to operate the associated programs on a given device, thus reducing the chances of unauthorized use of company email on a company device from a third party, which can be a particular relief if a given handheld device becomes lost or stolen. Make sure that your Activesync security policies are as firm as possible while still allowing your employees normal use of their company email accounts remotely, and you should be pleased with the results overall. Be sure to listen to any constructive input that your employees may have on the subject of your Activesync security policies as you go along for best results as well, and hopefully things become more secure and streamlined as a result!
