ActiveSync devices and Sentry

ActiveSync devices are devices accessing the ActiveSync server through Sentry. Sentry uses the ActiveSync protocol to communicate with the ActiveSync server and with ActiveSync devices to allow ActiveSync devices access to a user’s email, contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes. Sentry associates the user with the device accessing the ActiveSync server, and allows you to manage these associations.

The terms ActiveSync devices, ActiveSync phones, and ActiveSync associations are used interchangeably and refer to the user and device accessing the ActiveSync server. Actions which specifically impact only the user or the device are called out.
