In Good for Windows Phone there's a strong emphasis on providing security at the application layer. This make sense in an enterprise world where BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is becoming increasingly common and where it may not be possible (or desirable) to lock down a device at the hardware or platform level, but where it is important to secure corporate data. This allows a user to use their device as they see fit (i.e. install personal apps, email accounts etc.), but still ensure that corporate data and functionality is as secure as on a fully managed device.
Windows Phone Store description:
Good for Enterprise™ delivers secure mobile collaboration and device management for Windows Phone devices. With Good for Enterprise, employees securely access corporate email, contacts, and calendar. Good for Enterprise provides a unique, secure container that separates personal from business while respecting employees’ privacy – ideal for BYOD devices. Unlike other solutions, only Good for Enterprise prevents data loss by providing security at the application layer (in addition to device security).
