How to secure mobile devices in Exchange Server 2007

Microsoft first introduced Direct Push technology as a part of Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2. Direct Push technology allows mobile device users to receive email messages as they arrive. More importantly, this technology allows security policies to be enforced on mobile devices and offers the ability to remotely wipe a mobile device if it's lost or stolen.

Direct Push technology has been extended in Exchange Server 2007 to allow even greater control over mobile device security. In this step-by-step guide, Exchange MVP Brien Posey explains how to create a mobile device security policy, assign that policy to specific users, and remotely wipe a mobile device in Exchange 2007.
