Appreciate for help.
When adding my exchange account(s) the device prompted me with a notification that the security guidelines (or similar worded) need to be updated in order for the account to work. This was then displayed in the notification bar from where i could tap and confirm it.
What this does is grant the exchange server certain rights to access the phone. For example to remotely wipe the device in case it was lost (to prevent unauthorized access to the mail/contact/calendar data).
