Rules

Administrators can limit access solely to devices that support ActiveSync policies, and thereby create and enforce passcode policies.

Rules

Passcode

With passcode policy in place, a user will be forced to create a passcode on the mobile device before being allowed to synchronize data.

Passcode

Devices

Domain administrators can view synchronized devices on each user's management page. Google's system does a lousy job of differentiating devices.

Devices

Wipe

Administrators can remotely wipe a device reported lost or stolen. The command will be issued to the device the next time it attempts synchronization.

Wipe

Looped Wipes

Google's console frequently will not report a successful wipe job. Any wiped devices that are subsequently rejoined to the domain will be wiped recursively until an administrator cancels the job.
