Final Notification: Non-Blackberry mobile device clients connecting to Exchange Email

C&C would like to advise non-Blackberry mobile device users that new security related configuration changes for Exchange email will be implemented on Monday March 28th, 2011.

All clients accessing Memorial’s Exchange email from a non-Blackberry device will be subject to a number of new security policies as outlined below.

* Six (6) character password consisting of letters, numbers and special characters
* Automatic wiping of the device after 10 failed password attempts
* Device will be subject to a remote data wipe by C&C if reported lost or stolen

These policies will apply to the following devices:

* iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4
* iPad (all models)
* Pod Touch (3rd and 4th Gen)

No other non-Blackberry mobile devices will be supported on Exchange.

*Please note, wiped devices are set back to factory defaults. All personal and Exchange data will be erased. Clients are therefore encouraged to regularly back up their devices to a physically secure desktop or encrypted laptop using iTunes.

Clients using personally-owned devices will be required to sign the previously distributed “opt in” form acknowledging that C&C will have this degree of control over their non- Blackberry device should they wish to continue to connect to Exchange. Clients using University-purchased devices will, by default, be subject to this policy.

Clients having questions or concerns about these policy changes are encouraged to contact the C&C Service Desk at 864-4595 or for assistance. Thank you.
