Enterprise apps are surely need of the hour and more and more entrepreneurs are embracing the same with open arms. It is worth noting that though android is the leading platform covering almost 80% of the global mobile markets. Still, when it comes to enterprise application development, iOS is the ultimate winner. The major reason behind this is security concern. But, of late, things are improving, still there are a set of challenges.
Though the latest outcomes of android smartphones are keeping into consideration above two problems. Still, there are many challenges to be faced. Let's look at the challenges and explore more about the issues.
1. Android devices are inexpensive and today almost everyone has an Android device with him or her.
2. The concept of BYOD is allowing more and more people to choose their devices that they bring to office.
3. Price is another factor; iPhones are available in no less than $500 while a variety of Android devices are available from $75 to $500. This is the reason why companies are switching to Android.
With BYOD culture gradually gaining prominence, employees are worried that the company’s IT administrators do have access to their device. But, the scenario is completely different; IT administrators only have access to the app data and rest any of the personal data is not accessible.
Although investors are making a good deal of investments to make Android the most preferred OS, but still there are some issues with the same. Likewise, only a few leading mobile phone manufacturing companies adhere to the terms and conditions of Android. But, of late, other companies are following the same footsteps and we expect the target to be accomplished by the end of this year. Second one, While it can’t be ignored that phone manufacturers need to have the minimum level of hardware and software support to deploy at the enterprise level.
This question haunts most of the business owners and employees. Let’s dig into this and find how the potential threats could be controlled.
In order to ensure the security of data, device wide encryption should be bought into action. The process is quite similar in the case of encrypting a PC.
Personal and professional data should be kept separate at the enterprise level for smooth working. Enough arrangements should be made by the IT administrator for the separation of Personal information and work information.
