Overview of Service
Drexel has established security standards for mobile devices that synchronize information with University services to ensure safe storage and handling.
Drexel and the College of Medicine operate Exchange email servers that require extra settings for mobile device security. Most devices will prompt you to accept new settings (see below). If you do not accept the changes, your device will stop synchronizing with the server.
Settings are automatically applied when mobile devices connect to the Drexel Exchange servers.
These security settings require a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to turn on the display if the device hasn't be used for more than a few minutes. At Drexel, that PIN is at minimum a 6-digit number; simple patterns such as 111111 or 123456 are disallowed. The timeout is user-selectable, up to 15 minutes.
If you have questions about the smartphone and tablet security settings, please contact the IT Help Desk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215.895.2020.
If a device does not comply with these security measures, it must be upgraded or replaced to access email from Drexel Exchange servers.
