    EMM Device Verification

      Hy,

       

      does anyone know hoe the device verification "feature"  works ?

       

      i understood that if a device has not connected to the proxy for a specified time the device forces you to verifiy over the EMM app on the device.

       

      Nevertheless though our users are regulary connecting to their mails etc ( also the compliance timestamp moved along with the connection time) they regularily get asked to verify themselvs. On IOS 5 it happens nearly every hour.

       

      any ideas ?

       

      Using EMM 9.6

       

      all the best

       

      Dave

          I have seen this too on our iPad 2 that upgraded ti iOS5. It asks for verification every hour. I do have our set to check jailbroken status every 10080 minutes (7 days) and the compliance window is set to the default of 240 minutes. What gives?

            received some background information from McAfee:

             

            if you have continuous jailbreak detection on it is necessary to have the location services running on the ipad/iphones. This is the only way to have a permanent management connection from the MDM to the device (running over the Apple Push service) . I always thought that the MDM can check the status etc also over the Active Sync connection but i was wrong.

             

            The thing what i see regarding the location services is you cannot manage this setting over the MDM ( no policy available from Apple for this) and second if you have your location services on all the time your battery lasts max a day .
