Android Enterprise Security
Best-in-class device and data protection.
Defense in depth.
Each layer of defense works together to make the whole ecosystem stronger. We start by building a secure OS, and making sure device makers meet our strict hardware standards.
Then, we add security services on top to prevent leaks and hacks. And finally, we give you control over the entire fleet of devices. Because a wall is good. But a fortress is better.Read the security paper
Android devices come with security already built in. To start, security functions run in a trusted execution environment (TEE) to make sure the OS stays safe. Like protected lock screen and data encryption. And sandboxing to keep apps separate and data clean. It’s always on and always running. Just boot up and start working.
Verified boot alerts you to OS compromises when you start up.
Anti-exploitation techniques prevent vulnerabilities from becoming exploitable.
Critical security functions happen in the TEE separate from the OS.
Google security services.
Employees can use their devices without putting the whole business at risk. Download apps without downloading threats. Change settings without threatening security. User data is protected and company data is kept private. It’s a one-two punch: protected hardware, plus an extra layer of risk mitigation.
Google Play Protect detects and blocks malware threats.
Google safe browsing protects you from malware and phishing.
SafetyNet API checks devices before they can access data.
Android puts you in control of every device in your fleet at once. Deploy devices and configure settings the way you want. Distribute only the apps your employees should use. Even set up separate profiles to keep work data away from personal data.
Deploy devices to enforce compliance across the business.
Distribute and configure apps safely with managed Google Play.
Work profile prevents leaks between personal and company data.
