Sample GEOACL Configuration & Working for Communication & Collaboration

John Smith wants to do account maintenance tasks such as set rules/filters, set email archival policy, change out of office greeting, manage folders, delete old emails/messages, manage contacts, add friends, change server account connection details, from home area (Main street, Old Bridge, N.J.) only, and use it to compose, send receive emails, read, send messages, set status messages, from home area as well as office area, (located at times square, New York city) using computing devices like PC or laptop or any other or using wireless devices or any other means of communication.

He wants this access from within say 2 mile radius from office location's centre and 5 miles radius from home location's centre as well as the route that he is using to commute to office. He doesn't want to allow his email/chat/IM/Social Network account to be accessed from any other location.

Based on this requirement, whenever John accesses his account our system will check his credentials and current geographical location against locations configured in system by John himself. When match found account features are enabled or disabled as per location.

Now even if John Smith's communication account details get stolen anyhow, hacker must have to use it from locations configured by John Smith to be able to use it. So hacker would not be able to access account from any random location and if tried from within 2 miles radius of John's time square location then he would get limited access.

If John Smith receives alert indicating rejection or suspicious activity or become aware that his communication account details are stolen he can immediately change it and or reduce radius and or cut down on locations allowed.
