    Android and corporate email

    I have been using the Droid to access corporate email for a couple of months now. This morning, me and several other Android users got an email from our security dept informing us that they were evaluating whether Android-based devices should be allowed to connect to our corporate Exchange Server because it lacks specific security features and isn't a secure device.

    Any other Android users facing similar challenges?

    Tell them to buy you all Touchdown and then you'll be secure as they want.

    My understanding is that Android does not support Exchange security policies which seems to be what the OP is referring to. Are you claiming that Touchdown does provide this support?

    Touchdown is a great solution, true, but the device needs to be able to have a corporate-enforced policy that locks it down. It shouldn't be left up to the user. Our corporate security policy can lock down iPhones and Blackberries, not just the email app. The devices can be remote wiped if required. If my (Android) phone gets stolen then whoever steals it has access to my email, and login credentials if they look in the right places.

    So one of the mobile defense type apps would not work? I know wave secure can wipe a phone and mobile defense will have that soon.
    Touchdown has several options including remote-wipe, and pin access requirements. I am sure you are aware of this already, but if you need more than these options, you should go blackberry.

    Touchdown and Wave Secure calmed down the IT Goon at corporate for me.

    I got Verizon to reimburse me for my Touchdown purchase, due to their false advertisement of their Droid fully supporting exchange. Their native e-ail program is BROKEN and does not function properly. I told them I was either going to return the phone and contact BBB and other legal channels for their false advertisement, they said here is your $10 credit sir.

    Touchdown was the very first program I DL'd.

    That is why you keep the lock on your main screen. Not the stock one, the 9 dot security lock. They won't be able to get past that to any of your private stuff. There are also several apps that do just that, lock your phone if it gets lost or stolen.
