Enterprise White Papers - Security on the Pocket PC
Posted on 13-Mar-2003 15:24 | Filed under: News



The paper, published in May 2002, was written by Douglas Dedo, Mobile Devices Division, Microsoft Corporation.

"As organizations consider mobile enterprise solutions, one key evaluation point is security. Pocket PCs can store large amounts of data and connect to a broad spectrum of networks making them as important and sensitive a computing platform as laptop PCs when it comes to an organization's security plan."

"While these devices can improve employee productivity and reduce operational costs, their small size makes them easy to be lost or stolen. Whether a mobile device only stores one's calendar and contacts or an entire organization's database, losing control over this data can pose a serious threat to an organization."
