Technology that already keeps enterprise data secure on servers and networks has made its way onto Windows mobile devices.

Windows-based notebooks and tablets incorporate the trusted platform module (TPM) chip, a product and specification that adhere to the Trusted Computing Group's security architecture.

The chip is installed on a device's motherboard and is available from vendors including Broadcom, Infineon Technologies and STMicroelectronics. Management of the chip is enabled by software from companies such as Wave Systems.
