BUILT-IN VPN SUPPORT
With Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft believes it now has the best smartphone for enterprise use. For one, VPN support is finally built into the OS, and it’s possible to define when a VPN connection is automatically triggered. Major VPN vendors, like Checkpoint, Del/SonicWALL, F5, and Juniper, are supported. There’s also S/ MIME (Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) support for encryption and signing of emails, enhanced MDM (Mobile Device Management) policies, support for the EAP-TLS (EAP-Transport Layer Security) enterprise Wi-Fi standard, and passwordprotected document support for Office, among others.
