    • Device overview GO for: Apple & Android Question: Nokia
    • Do you upgrade ?• Many servers still run old versions• Frequent updates: • around 1 release per month: check changelogs • 6 months of 2011: 14 releases (5 stable, 9 betas/RCs)• RCs are already tested • But we still need productive feedback (!)• Z-Push 2: lower impact on updates (no new profiles)
    • Z-Push 2 – some new features• Synchronization of public folders (some devices)• Access to shared folders• Full device resync from server• Improved Device Management• Policy management (e.g. password enforcment)• Set out-of-office messages from device• Support of “ghosted” fields• Search directly on the server
    • Z-Push 2 – below the surface• Improved behaviour in case of errors • Loop detection • More flexible MAPI accesses• Flexible state management • Managable even with 1000s of mobile• Better logging • 9 different loglevels • Possibility of creating separate log file per user
    • Public folder sync• Only available on mobiles which have „multiple folder sync“• Contacts, Calendars or E-Mails on mobile• Most interesting: Company contacts on mobile• Users need „Secretary rights“ • Full access (read, write & delete on all objects) • Z-Push checks these rights while synching
    • Policy Management in Enterprises• Secure access to sensitive data in levels 1. Remote wipe, passcodes, autolock, passcode history 2. Encrypt storage, disallow: camera, “consumer email”, WiFi, Bluetooth, list of (not) approved apps (WM)• Global Policies for all users• Exceptions for certain users• Disallow access to Z-Push
    • Downside: device dependency• Policy support depends on individual mobile• Basic policies (level 1) well supported• Advanced polices (level 2) • Two major groups • Windows Mobile 6.1 & 6.5 – full support • Others – support policy subset• Information security still depends on end user
    • Policy support – simplified overview Android AndroidPolicy WM iOS 2.2 2.3.3Remote wipePassword & LockscreenDisallow Camera &BrowserDisallow Wifi & consumerMailsEncrypt data storage * * iOS beginning with 3GS encrypts all data by default.
