Outlook ActiveSync is the component of the Microsoft Exchange server that allows users to synchronize their Exchange information (inbox, subfolders, calendar, contacts,) with their mobile device like smart phones and tablets.
DualShield for Outlook ActiveSync is a two-factor authentication solution that enhances the security of Exchange ActiveSync by adding a second factor authentication to the data synchronisation process. With DualShield installed and enabled, users can only access their Exchange information from their trusted devices.
DualShield for Outlook ActiveSync is a zero-footprint, user friendly two-factor authentication solution for mobile users. The solution utilizes the device’s hardware ID as the second factor without installing any software on the end-user’s mobile device. Once a user’s device has been registered and approved, the second-factor authentication process over the data synchronisation is automatic and invisible to the user.
DualShield provides a set of authentication and access control policies that enable granular administrative access control down to a user, device, group or unit. For instance, in a circumstance where a user or device needs to be exempted from two-factor authentication, the network administrator can put the user or device in the exception list.
