Google Enhances Android Mobile Device Security

“Google today made it easier for mobile IT administrators to
securely manage Android 2.2 (Froyo) devices from within Google
Apps.

“”Now any employee with an Android device running version 2.2 —
personal or company-issued — can access their corporate
information while allowing administrators to enforce data security
policies,” Amit Singh, vice president of international sales for
Google’s Enterprise group, said in a blog post.

“Google already licenses Microsoft’s ActiveSync technology and
the new security and mobile management features don’t extend beyond
what IT can already offer via Microsoft Exchange or RIM’s
BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES). Still, Google’s update now
gives mobile IT more flexibility when managing devices from within
a browser because they don’t need to access dedicated servers.”
