Microsoft ActiveSync

Version: Exchange Server 2007/2010

Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is a synchronization protocol that enables users of mobile devices to access email, calendar, contacts, and tasks from their organization’s Microsoft Exchange server. Netsurion Open XDR utilizes Microsoft Exchange Powershell cmdlets to fetch usage statistics reports from IIS events of Exchange server.

Netsurion Data Source Integration for Microsoft ActiveSync allows you to monitor the following:-

  • Operations – User activity with device details, request and response statistics from server
  • Security – Hourly sync statistics
  • Compliance – Device compliance statistics

Once Microsoft ActiveSync is configured to deliver events to Netsurion Open XDR; reports and dashboards can be configured into Netsurion Open XDR.
