Current Release Status: EA (June 2017)
Now you can ensure the security of your mobile devices with a new feature called Device Trust for Microsoft Office 365 Exchange ActiveSync for iOS. Watch Teju, as she talks more about his exciting new feature:
With the rollout of this feature you will now be able to:
- Configure the iOS native mail application to use a certificate instead of passwords to allow OMM enrolled users to authenticate to Office 365 Exchange ActiveSync, and
- Configure the iOS native mail application client access policy to prevent users with unmanaged devices from accessing Office 365 Exchange ActiveSync.
- End users will be allowed to seamlessly SSO into their native iOS mail application from OMM-enrolled devices, and, will also avoid becoming locked-out of their account due to AD password resets.
To get started using this great new feature you should do the following:
Note: feature is supported on devices running iOS 9 or above enrolled to OMM (Okta Mobility Management)Q:
- First, you’ll need an Office 365 tenant federated to an Okta organization, with at least one license for Exchange Online.
- Next, configuring certificate based authentication in Office 365 requires running a few commands in Azure Active Directory PowerShell, so you’ll need a Windows machine.
Is this feature available for Android devices?A:
This feature is currently available for iOS devices only.
Q: What should I do if a user has already configured an email profile prior to enrolling in OMM?
A: Because there have been a few issues associated with this we recommend that your end users delete the manually configured profile from their device.
