Submission + - Microsoft wipes family photos off employee phones (networkworld.com)

jbrodkin writes: "Microsoft employees who forget their phone passwords will see their devices get wiped, even if they're filled with personal data. "At Microsoft, we have a policy that says if you try to log in on a phone five times incorrectly, we actually wipe the phone," says Microsoft's Brad Anderson. "When that one gets wiped, it doesn't differentiate between what is corporate data and what is personal data." For the sake of its employees and customers, Microsoft is working on a system that can treat the corporate and personal data separately, but is so far coming up short. "I know what the problem is, but I'm not sure how we're going to solve it yet," Anderson says."
