Bit of background if you'll indulge - at my workplace we are still running Exchange 2003 -u/g next finincial year hopefully;). At the moment we can't allow devices other than Blackberrys to access Exchange as E2K3 doesn't support the EAS encryption policy. We are looking at WP8 as possible BB replacements. Am I right in thinking that the whole device is encrypted with Bitlocker, thereby meaning EAS encryption policy is irrelevant and we can roll out devices securely even prior to upgrading Exchange?
Probably a dumb question but thanks in advance...

Here's a link with some vague information about encryption:
Windows Phone Security | Windows Phone (United States)
It's not really clear to me what they're saying. First it says "To help keep everything from documents to passwords safe, Windows Phone 8 encrypts the operating system and data files." Then in the next sentence we get "With device encryption turned on, any file saved to the phone is encrypted automatically."
I'm not sure how you turn device encryption on. Is it on by default? Is it in the settings? Maybe someone with a WP8 can clarify this.

Suggest research here: Windows Phone 8 is here and ready for business! - Microsoft Enterprise Insights Blog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
Windows Phone 8 supports full disk encryption, Office 365, IRM, and many other enterprise class features. Keep in mind that Windows Phone 8 also supports Information Rights Management and many other advanced business features =D.
