There’s a neat tool in Exchange Server 2010 that you may utilize in case a company smart phone (e.g. Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, etc..) has been misplaced, lost or stolen, to protect all the sensitive data stored on that phone. You may perform a remote wipe of the data on the mobile phone from Exchange Server without having to do a physical mobile data wipe out.

On the Exchange Management Console, expand Microsoft Exchange On Premises, expand Recipient Configuration, click on Mailbox, from the Actions pane, select the Mobile User that you wish to do a remote data wipe out, click on Manage Mobile Phone…

On the Manage Mobile Phone properties select Perform a remote wipe to clear mobile phone data in the Action section then click on Clear.

This process took less than 2 minutes to complete a remote wipe of a business mobile phone.
