Test Windows Mobile Security with Windows Mobile Emulator

When testing a new configuration’s security, it’s important that you have the right client software available to make connections to the secure server. Since most test labs are done in a virtual environment, you need to make sure that you have virtual clients available for testing. This usually isn’t an issue for client operating systems, since you can virtualize just about all of them. However, mobile device operating systems aren’t as easy to virtualize. However, if you need to test the security of your Windows Mobile client operating systems are their connections to Exchange Server, you can use the Windows Mobile device emulator.
