Android has long ruled the consumer market. Now, the latest security advancements from Google and device manufacturers, and support for Android by leading EMM solution providers, are expanding its presence in the enterprise. To help ensure security and compliance with industry standards and government regulations, enterprises need a way to protect and manage the wide range of available devices, versions, and idiosyncrasies of the world’s most popular mobile operating system.
It’s not a one-solution-fits-all situation. IT needs to examine its device and application landscape and decide what security and management capabilities are essential in a customized enterprise mobility strategy. Through platforms such as MaaS360®, which provide a flexible approach to EMM, enterprises can take advantage of native device and OS controls, data containerization, and cloud-based scalability, so that enterprises can embrace Android with confidence.
