Android Goes to Work

E-mail Print PDF

Google launches its long brewing enterprise smartphone program-- Android for Work, a collection of applications, online services and industry services involving use of the mobile operating system on the workplace.

Android for WorkAs Google puts it, Android for Work essentially provides a dedicated work profile on the user's device. Building on the built-in multi-user support and SELinux security in Android 5.0, Android for Work allows IT to deploy work apps alongside personal apps, without employees worrying employers are snooping on personal data.

The technology comes from Divide, a BYOD software startup Google swallowed back in May 2014.

An enterprise-managed version of the Google app store, the imaginatively titled Google Play for Work, handles app distribution. Android for Work also includes a built-in productivity tool suite with email, contacts and calendar complete with Exchange and Notes suite.

Gartner: Enterprise Needs Active Security

Gartner urges enterprises to shift security away from mere blocking and detection to active detection and response to attacks-- all in order to avoid what it calls "aggressive business disruption attacks."

CybercrimeSuch attacks are defined as "targeted attacks that reach deeply into internal digital business operations with the express purpose of widespread business damage. Servers may be taken down completely, data may be wiped and digital intellectual property may be released on the Internet by attackers… These attacks may expose embarrassing internal data via social media channels-- and could have a longer media cycle than a breach of credit card or personal data."

"Preventive controls, such as firewalls, antivirus and vulnerability management, should not be the only focus of a mature security program," Gartner continues. "Balancing investment in detection and response capabilities acknowledges this new reality."
