About 25 percent of companies that have bring your own device, or BYOD, policies in the workplace lack iPhone or Android device management protocols and system to manage these devices and protect them against hackers and viruses. But Android in the enterprise of any business is so common that allowing for this to continue is risking many devices. To set things straight, experts recommend that companies employ strong Android management systems based on the standard Android security model.
Because Android in the enterprise is so common, protecting these devices is of the utmost concern for today’s employers. Fifty seven percent of owners of tablets, including Nexus, use these devices both for work and for their own purposes, and 70 percent of the country’s users of smart phones check their emails regularly both inside of and outside of work using their devices, with 81 percent of the country’s workers using at least one of their electronic devices for work. It has become so commonplace to use these devices for work that no one really thinks about it much anymore. But they need to, since these systems have to be just as protected as laptops and desktop computers for business purposes.
Luckily for corporate America, there is a solution. This solution for Android in the enterprise applications revolves around the cloud. Device management systems that are based on the cloud generally provide more visibility, more control and more safety for these devices and their operators in BYOD applications.
