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:
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.
Note: feature is supported on devices running iOS 9 or above enrolled to OMM (Okta Mobility Management)
Q: 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.
