MDM is a feature in WFBS 9.0 that integrates with Security Policy, which is an Exchange ActiveSync built-in feature. This feature is supported in Exchange 2007, 2010, and 2013. In other versions of Exchange, MDM is hidden. This article shows the steps in using the MDM.


To add/configure MDM Security policies:

  1. Log in to the WFBS Security Server console.
  2. Go to Security Settings > Exchange Server > Configure Settings.

    The MDM Security Policy will not maintain the non-default policies that are added through the Exchange management console or Exchange Cmdlet. We suggest administrators manage Security Policies from one place, either only in MSA or Exchange.
  3. Go to Mobile Security > Security Policies > Add.
