"Mobile Device Manager 2008 is a solution that gives organizations enhanced on-device security and over-the-air policy enforcement. It allows IT professionals to more easily manage phones within the organization, and gives mobile employees access to confidential information on corporate networks with firewalls."

That means mobile devices can be integrated into corporate IT infrastructure and become part of it. IT personal will be able to control mobile devices and enforce corporate security policies on them.

At least one software company announced support for the Mobile Device Manager 2008.
