Organizations of all sizes are expanding their support for an increasingly mobile workforce, making privacy and security essential. Windows Phone is designed with security in mind for users and organizations. The result is a feature-rich, flexible smartphone that uses a holistic approach to security design—a breakthrough for enterprises that need smartphones capable of enterprise-level security, features, and management.
Smartphones help organizations be productive and competitive, but these mobile devices also require increased security vigilance. The pervasive threat of malicious software, or malware, and the need to prevent data leakage are two reasons why a thoughtful, comprehensive security design is essential.
Identity and access control are essential parts of any organization’s security plan. Windows Phone 8.1 includes highly secure identity features, such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) with virtual smart cards and PINs. These features help keep confidential information secure yet are easy for information workers to use.
Organizations want smartphones that protect data when it is stored and when it is communicated. Windows Phone 8.1 uses a defense-in-depth, multilayered approach that addresses organizational security requirements in numerous ways. Because Windows Phone 8.1 shares many of the same underlying components, including those related to security, as Windows 8.1 and Windows
Server 2012 R2 operating systems, it offers predictability, reliability, and commonality in how it can be used and managed. The result is a platform this is unique in today’s marketplace.
