    Microsoft Partners With Good Technology To Provide Encrypted Email For Enterprise | WMPoweruser

    Microsoft today announced a partnership with Good Technology to provide encrypted email solution to the enterprise customers. Microsoft these days is focusing more on consumer side of its Windows Phone platform and adding Good for Enterprise solution is a great move that would help Windows Phone adoption in the enterprise to some extent. Microsoft is expected to bring a bunch of enterprise features with Windows Phone Apollo that will come later this year.

    “Every customer makes an individual decision when it comes to selecting a personal mobile device, and more and more people are choosing Windows Phone for both its integrated experiences and elegant design,” said Tom Trinneer, director of Product Management, Windows Phone Division, Microsoft. “Good Technology is a leader in providing encrypted email access to enterprise employees. This is why we selected Good as our Windows Phone 7.5 preferred partner solution for secured, encrypted mobile messaging. With its help we can now extend the Windows Phone experience by adding powerful security technologies to enterprise email, enabling busy professionals to stay connected and productive.”

    hmm...this article suggests that Nokia is also spearheading this move...could this be another Nokia Collections exclusive? Certainly seems like Nokia is taking command of leading Windows Phone through the market here...

    Woo hoo! I had a thread on this in the marketplace apps. This was a major barrier for me switching from iPhone to WP.
