Windows Phone 7 Security discussed

Microsoft Developer training has published this video discussing the built-in security features of Windows Phone 7. While the device has the basic ability to enforce a PIN and other user policies, the primary security feature is the Isolated storage, enforced by the operating system, which means one malicious application will not be able to read the data of another, except by going through vetted launchers and pickers.

The OS does however lack an encrypted file system, but the OS does come with many build-in encryption algorithms which does make it easy for developers to keep user data safe even if the handset falls in the wrong hands.

For more detail see the video above.
