Android for Work gives users the ability to essentially partition their smartphones or tablets so that they can keep their personal info and work info separate and secure. That way, if IT has to erase or access data on the device, they can’t touch the user’s personal info, and the same goes for anyone trying to access corporate data on the device. Google also includes a number of MDM features in Android, such as inactive account wipe, EAP-based Wi-Fi network support and the ability to detect compromised devices.
Besides Android for Work, Google also offers Google for Work, which gives businesses an alternative to the traditional Microsoft Office Suite. Users have enterprise access to the full suite of Google products including Google Drive, Calendar, Docs and Gmail, just to name a few.
Dell has been a mainstay in most corporate environments for decades, but that doesn’t mean the company has stopped offering the latest in the way of mobile enterprise offerings. Similar to Apple and Samsung, Dell introduced hybrid-tablet devices aimed at providing mobile workers with lightweight and portable devices. Dell, most notably, has taken a notice to the fact that the way people work has changed in the last five to 10 years, mostly thanks to technology.
With more workers being on the go or working remotely than ever before, Dell has focused on making it easier for companies to embrace BYOD with increased security features. These features allow IT departments to control data access, manage bandwidth and protect the network from spyware, viruses, spam and other threats. Dell also understands the importance of most industries to equip their workers with the best technology possible, while also ensuring there is a strict level of governance compliance. Dell isn’t just focused on protecting data when deploying mobile devices, but also protecting networks while also keeping devices easy to use for workers.
