Abstract

Because everything about the design and operation of Windows Phone 7 targets consumers, it is only natural that Microsoft has carefully thought through the ways to protect consumers from both intended and unintentional harm. Windows Phone 7 ships with a compelling set of built-in security features that go towards accomplishing that goal. The capabilities of the Windows Phone 7 platform allow the data to be protected both in transit and on the device. Because of the centralized application certification process, consumers gain confidence that no malicious applications are downloaded and installed on their devices (unlike some competing platforms, which are increasingly becoming infested with malware). And should the phone be lost or stolen, each device comes with a free web-based tool that allows you to remotely control the phone, including locking and wiping all data on that phone.
