A few moments ago I presented at Microsoft Ltd's Architect Insight Conference near Windsor Castle in England. My session discussed architectural approaches to security management in a virtual World including a discussion explaining how System Center Mobile Device Manager (SCMDM) works.

It's important to be aware that in order to use SCMDM in the first instance your mobile devices need to be running Windows Mobile v6.1 - it will be a free upgrade for some handsets - that's entirely down to the policy of the hardware manufacturer.

Eileen Brown's post titled Managing your mobile devices provides some useful background information together with links to the System Center Mobile Device Manager trial download and the top level "tech center" TechNet site for SCMDM which itself includes the following excellent links:
