Google Gives Admins More Power Over Android Phones
Google today armed its business customers with more tools to help secure their employees' Android smartphones. The company added more granular control over Android devices to the Google Apps Admin console. Admins can now perform selective device wipes, which removes Google Apps account data but leaves user data intact. Admins can also remotely wipe an SD memory card when performing a full device wipe. Security policies can now be enforced across a companies' fleet of devices with an updated Device Policy app. Finally, admins now have more control over Wi-Fi configuration and network access. Google believes these changes will help its business customers better manage their Android mobile devices.
