Reverse Proxy for Yammer

MVISION Cloud for Microsoft Office 365 Yammer provides Contextual Access Control using Reverse Proxy for managed and unmanaged devices.

MVISION Cloud can provide a Cloud Access Policy to control services that users can access from managed devices or unmanaged devices. It also provides a DLP policy to monitor the sensitive information shared by the user.

Yammer supports reverse proxy with the following criteria:

  • If you have a managed device, your activities are redirected via proxy and you can access the application directly.
  • If you have an unmanaged device, uploads and downloads are blocked or allowed based on the CAP policies.
Legends used in the table:
✔ - Verified and working.
✖ - Cert check prompt is not displayed.

NOTE: It is recommended to block Native Apps in Android and iOS for unmanaged and managed devices, as MVISION Cloud cannot distinguish them. For details, refer to the table below.

The table summarizes the different ways to access Office 365 Yammer with CAP policies applied to it.
