Android for Work

With the release of ‚Android for Work‘ Google made a big leap forwards to enterprise readiness for it’s android OS. By separating the installation and data layers for apps installed by the user and those, installed by enterprise IT management apps now can be safely controlled by IT staff. Rights management, data and communications security now are strictly separated between enterprise and consumer apps.

Apps ‚for Work‘ are distributed via ‚Google Play for Work‘ (the service name sems a little awkward) and are under management of enterprise IT specialists.


Business data is strictly separated from personal data on the device.

Data Protection

Business data is encrypted and can be wiped remotely as well as managed via VPN access.

App Security

App management is done by internal enterprise IT staff and distributed independently via ‚Google Play of Work‘.
