Office 365 MAM Policy

Office 365 Mobile Application Management (MAM) policies allow organization's to secure the corporate data within any Office 365 application. MDM allows organization to enforce policies that manage how the data is accessed and transfered between apps. It also allows you to block access or wipe data when the apps don't comply with the organization's security standards.

Office 365 MAM policies are applied when the user downloads the apps on any Apple or Android devices and logs in using their corporate Azure AD credentials. This means that the MAM policies can be applied to add a layer of security in BYOD deployments.

Pre-requisites

  • The organization must have an Azure AD account.
  • The organization must purchase Microsoft Intune licenses for all the users to whom the MAM policies need to be applied to, as enforced by Microsoft. For more details, refer this.

  • On the MDM console, navigate to Device Mgmt -> Office 365 MAM policy under Conditional Access.
  • Click on Start and integrate your corporate Azure AD account.
  • Upon successful integration, click on Create Policy and select whether the policy is for Android or Apple devices.
