"Mobile security specialist, Safeboot, has launched one of the first products that can transparently encrypt and decrypt data held on Windows mobile PDAs and smartphones. Data Encryption and Secure Access Control for Windows Mobile is unusual in that it integrates with the device, and requires no user intervention other than a passphrase. All data including databases, appointments, and calendars - are scrambled and unscrambled without the user being aware it is happening. In addition, specified data folders and media cards added to the device can also be included in the profile."

I've been in a number of companies that use Safeboot on their laptops and it's a pretty good system. It's going to be interesting to see how well that can transfer to Windows Mobile devices. This will be a huge win for helping to get enterprise customers on board with Windows Mobile. Even if the Mobile client is only half as good as it's desktop counterpart.
