DualShield MFA for Exchange 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. In other words, the two-factor authentication process does not require user intervention. Therefore, it is not only very secure but also very user friendly.
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 MFA exemption list.
Supports native ActiveSync clients
DualShield MFA for Exchange ActiveSync supports native ActiveSync clients on iOS and Android devices, i.e. Apple Mail and Google Mail clients, and 3rd-party ActiveSync clients by some independent developers and vendors. However, it does not fully support Microsoft Outlook app on iOS and Android devices, as the Microsoft Outlook app uses a proxy server to connect to on-prem Exchange servers.
