Android Security Alert for Staff and PGRs upgraded to Exchange 2010

For members of staff and postgraduate research students who have been upgraded to Exchange 2010|, we are aware that Android users are receiving a security alert when connecting to the new Email Exchange server on their Android mobile device.

See screenshots of the alert on one user's Android|.

This alert notifies the user that by accessing the Exchange server to view their emails, LSE can access and control certain features on their mobile device. This includes being able to remotely wipe the device and monitor failed password attempts to unlock the phone.

Users should note that this is a standard feature of the Exchange service and has always been in place. It is also the same for every mobile phone, but from what we have seen, no other phone alerts the user to these security settings.

You should be aware that IMT has no desire or interest in accessing any of these features, and will not do so without the express request of the user (e.g. if your mobile phone is lost or stolen, we can wipe the phone's contents for you).

We cannot remove this functionality from the Exchange service (Microsoft would have to do that). It is a standard feature of the current, and the new, Exchange service.

If you have concerns about the security risks implied by these features, please call IMT to discuss on extension 5000 or email It.Servicedesk@lse.ac.uk|
