i'm a Windows Systems Admin with Microsoft certifications. The powers that be have decided that we're sending our people out into the field with iPhones and iPads. I have a week to figure out best practices for keeping these devices secure, as well as securing against these devices (they will be coming in and out of the internal network, left in the hands of non-tech-savvy users).

ideally, these will be things i can force, not set at the device level and then hope that the user doesn't change the settings. Exchange policies are rather limited, and i've heard their "security" for iOX is easily circumvented, but i have no experience with that process...

thanks!

I know it can be done as our company has set our iPhone/iPad devices to lock themselves after a certain idle time and unless you jailbreak the device, you cannot circumvent it. This must have been done through Exchange policies because they never touched the device, it just locked itself after I connected to our companies email. Unfortunatly I can't give you anyymore info. I'm assuming your using this through an Exchange server, have you tried contacting Microsoft?
