Watch our colleague Ross demonstrate how MDM works with Android Enterprise.
Work with Tablets & Smartphones with Android for Work
In Ross’s Android for Work demo, you can see how MDM works, for example how slight changes to the interface take place after its activation on your tablet or phone.
As explained in our Android device management guide, you can separate private and business data, sure up mobile security and increase worker productivity with Android Enterprise.
Android opts for a completely novel approach to data separation – the key feature that protect sensitive corporate data while working on the move. On Android devices users download a separate instance of the apps that they wish to use for work purposes. These business apps are then marked with a suitcase and essentially cordoned off in a secure container.
Due to the way the secure container is designed on iOS, it is not possible to have a business version and private version of the same app. Instead, personal and workplace data is kept separate behind the scenes.
Despite Android Enterprise’s clearer approach, the main advantage to users and organizations remains the same: company data on private devices stays secure and employees don’t need to worry about intrusion into their private affairs.
So, when it comes to Android vs. iOS, Google has certainly caught up with Apple’s MDM interface possibilities.
