Selective Wipe introduced to Office 365 Plus
Date: Apr 21, 2015
We are pleased to announce the new Mobile Device Management (MDM) features for Office 365 Plus, including the ability to selectively wipe mobile devices.
Selective wipe of mobile units allows an administrator to revoke access to and delete corporate email that has been synced to a device, as well as specific data associated with Office 365 apps on the device, while retaining any unassociated personal data.
Selective wipe will work across a diverse range of phones and tablets, including iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices and is included at no additional cost for all AppRiver Office 365 Plus plans. The addition of the selective wipe capability and MDM features listed below to the already robust Office 365 Plus arsenal ensures that your Office 365 experience remains easy, effective and affordable.
Mobile Device Management options include:
* Selective wipe – Ability to perform either a full remote wipe of a corporate smartphone or tablet or a selective wipe of Office 365 company data from an employee’s device while leaving any personal data in place.
* Conditional access – Set up security policies to ensure that Office 365 corporate email and documents can be accessed only on phones and tablets that are managed by your company and that are compliant with your IT policies.
* Device management – Set and manage security policies, such as device-level pin lock and jailbreak or root detection, to help prevent unauthorised users from accessing corporate email and data on a lost or stolen device.

Cloud-based management for devices that run on iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android and Windows Phone will be supported and the roll out for these capabilities will be completed in 4-6 weeks. All features will be included with all Infosec Cloud Office 365 Plus and bundle licenses.
