Windows Phone armed with 'military-grade' email upgrade

Office invasion planned

Protecting against web application threats using SSL

Microsoft is bullet-proofing email on Windows Phone in an effort to follow Apple and Google into the workplace.

Redmond has announced a deal with Good Technology to make Good for Enterprise available for use on Windows Phone 7.5 devices.

The US mobile specialist will deliver FIPS-certified, 192-bit AES encrypted messaging for Windows Phone devices, potentially making it easier for employees to bring their own phones to the office for work. The service will be available in the second quarter.

Good for Enterprise secures Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes for iPhones, iPads and Android for enterprise use. The company claims its service provides “military-grade security, end-to-end data loss prevention, and collaboration” for security and compliance to over 4,000 enterprise customers.

The news came in the week Microsoft effectively revealed the update to Windows Phone – codenamed Tango – without actually using the code name. Microsoft said, simply, that Windows Phone was being updated to enable it to run on phones with less memory and slower processors than currently available. Accompanying the news was Microsoft's announcement that the Tango update to Windows Phone 7.5 would run on the Nokia Lumia 610 phone. ®
