Android smartphones and tablets are widely used by organisations as business/work devices. These Android devices play a crucial role in increasing the workers productivity and improving efficiency. On the other hand, the abundance of such devices makes the corporate data and devices vulnerable. Here, Android lockdown solution can help organisations to control and secure the corporate data and devices.
Challenges of managing business devices
Businesses provide corporate-owned devices to employees for work use. Employees access business mails, servers, networks, data through these Android devices. Managing and controlling such devices is a big challenge for I&O pros. Because, employees can use the devices for non-productive or other than work purposes. For example, gaming, entertaining, accessing social media, browsing for personal purposes and many more.
Also, employees can download the third party app, which can be malicious. They can open unsafe links which makes the corporate data and device at risk. Preventing such kinds of actions on corporate devices has become important. Here, Android lockdown solution comes into the picture.
