Google preps Android for its corporate interview, adds new security measures
Over 300,000 devices are activated per day, Androids clearly firing on all cylinders from a consumer standpoint, but much like the famed Cheez-It Wheel, some argue that the OS is not quite mature enough for unbashed enterprise use. Google is obviously been toiling around the clock to change that, and thats taking three major strides today.
An updated version of its Google Apps Device Policy enables employees to secure a lost or stolen Android 2.2+ device by locating it on a map, ringing the device, and resetting the device PIN number or Password remotely through the new My Devices Website. Apps admin now have an option in the control panel to Encrypt Data or Device, which will now include required encrypted storage on Android 3.0 tablets. Google Apps Lookup is acting as a type of internal blackbook allowing users to easily sift through colleagues and contact them through one from another.
