Android Security Features

Android's security features help make it the most widely used Operating System. 

Multi-layered security keeps your data and devices safe. Isolated processes and device encryption protect against data breaches. Built-in malware protection prevents harmful applications accessing your data. 

Android is open source. This means collective effort can be utilised to overcome emerging cyber threats. Alongside this, Google continuously invests in strengthening Android platform security.

A Secure Platform for Android

Sometimes mobile devices need to be completely locked down. Our Secure Platform for Android (ASP) means you can configure devices so they can only be used for the job at hand.

Security concerns in some environments make wireless communications impossible.  ASP is the only mobile device management system that allows devices to work completely offline.

Mobile devices are insecure when they are not supported by updates

Google’s security support for Android is typically limited to 3 years. We believe rugged devices should remain safely in use for longer, so we offer ongoing support for up to 10 years.
