Yes you can use your Android phone for work and do so with the CIO’s blessing. Maybe the corporate watchdogs aren’t telling you this quite yet, but chances are that they will before long.
Why? Because Google just purchased mobile device management company, Divide.
Formerly known as Enterproid, Divide enables you to keep your work and personal life separate on a single mobile device. This is critical for both employers who need to keep in strict control of their corporate information and for individuals who worry about their personal devices getting accidentally wiped by their employers, should a breach occur.
With Divide IT gets the security and control it needs, including governance and government-grade encryption to protect all business apps and data. Workers, at the same time, are able to enjoy privacy on their personal devices as well as the ability to access a suite of professional-grade business apps to get work done on the go.
This is what BYOD solutions should look and act like.
