Security and data protection in Windows Phone is a key design priority. Today I published a new paper titled “Windows Phone Enterprise Security and Policy Management” that discusses the Windows Phone team’s holistic approach to security, including new features in Windows Phone 7.5, the latest update to the Windows Phone OS.
The article provides an overview of the Windows Phone security model and how Windows Phone was designed to protect information. It describes the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) security–related policies that can be managed by IT departments and discusses how apps are isolated from each other to help protect the operating system. In addition, the article provides information on how Windows Phone helps protect against malware and how IT departments can provide secure access to corporate resources.
Windows Phone 7.5 also adds a number of new productivity features. This paper will help you understand that, in addition to the rich end user capabilities, Windows Phone is a flexible and secure phone that you can support with confidence. To see recent case studies of companies and IT departments that now support Windows Phone, visit Microsoft Case Studies.
