Deploying a system for management via Exchange ActiveSync protocol
Nov 27, 2023
Kaspersky Security Center allows you to manage mobile devices that are connected to the Administration Server using the Exchange ActiveSync protocol. Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) mobile devices are those connected to an Exchange Mobile Device Server and managed by Administration Server.
The following operating systems support Exchange ActiveSync protocol:
- Windows Phone® 8
- Windows Phone 8.1
- Windows 10 Mobile
The set of management settings for an Exchange ActiveSync device is dependent on the operating system under which the mobile device is running. For details on the support features of Exchange ActiveSync protocol for a specific operating system, please refer to the documentation enclosed with the operating system.
Deployment of a mobile device management system using Exchange ActiveSync protocol includes the following steps:
- The administrator installs Exchange Mobile Device Server on the selected client device.
- The administrator creates a management profile(s) in Administration Console for managing EAS devices and adds the profile(s) to the mailboxes of Exchange ActiveSync users.
Management profile of Exchange ActiveSync mobile devices is an ActiveSync policy used on a Microsoft Exchange server for managing Exchange ActiveSync mobile devices. Only one EAS device management profile can be assigned to a Microsoft Exchange mailbox.
Users of mobile EAS devices connect to their Exchange mailboxes. Any management profile imposes some restrictions on mobile devices.
