The XenMobile Mail
Manager consists of three main components:
- Exchange ActiveSync (EAS)
Access Control Management. This component communicates with Device
Manager to retrieve EAS policies from Device Manager, and then merges this
policy with any locally defined policy to determine which EAS devices that
should be allowed or denied access to Exchange. Local policies allows extending
the policy rules to allow access control by AD Group, User, Device Type, or
Device User Agent (generally the mobile platform version).
- Remote Powershell
Management. This component is responsible for scheduling and
invoking remote PowerShell commands to enact the policy compiled by EAS Access
Control Management. It periodically snapshots the EAS database to detect new or
changed EAS devices.
- Mobile Service
Provider. This component provides a web service interface so that
Device Manager can query EAS and/or Blackberry devices, and issue control
operations such as Wipe against them. This capability was previously provided
by the ZsmLite\ZMSP products.
