A PPC is a "Pocket PC"

Remote Wipe is a new feature in E2K3 SP2 that will enable the Exchange admins to force a device to delete its contents remotely. This can come in very handy when an end user loses their device or if the device is stolen -- and there is a risk that someone could access personal or confidential data. I should point out that there are a number of other policy/security related features in E2K3 SP2 to help mitigate this risk. For example, an Exchange admin can also enforce the user to use a PIN, can enforce a length for the PIN, can enforce whether the PIN is numeric or alphanumeric, and can enforce a specific PIN timeout. This coupled with the local wipe capability -- which removes all data from the device when someone enters an incorrect PIN x number of times provides good risk mitigation when a device is lost of stolen. But, remote wipe is intended to provide an additional layer of security on top of all this.
To remote wipe a PPC you can use the "Remote Wipe User Interface"
