Automated, Detailed ActiveSync Reporting Optimizes Exchange for
The “bring your own device” (BYOD) trend is combining with overall demands for enterprise mobility to flood organizations with mobile devices. In turn, Exchange users are increasingly accessing their mailboxes from their mobile devices via ActiveSync. To accommodate the explosion in mobile access without compromising Exchange performance, IT admins need to closely monitor and track mobile devices and the corresponding ActiveSync traffic.

Exchange Reporter Plus, on the other hand, can now track that ActiveSync activity instantaneously.
