When you bring your personal Android device to work, how do you know your personal applications and data are kept private? With the Android work profile you can! This is part of Android enterprise and is the solution for securing personal data for employee-owned devices. When deployed by VMware Workspace ONE, powered by VMware AirWatch technology, users can get access to their work apps while keeping their personal apps and data private. Work applications are badged with an icon providing a visual for end users, so they know these have been provided by IT.
In Episode One, we focused on device administrator deprecation and briefly went over the work profile. In this episode, we are talking all about the Android work profile. Learn how it’s different than device administrator and understand the separation it brings for work and personal data on devices. You will also discover some of the unique benefits it brings to end-users.
Over the next few months, we will continue to dive deeper into Android enterprise and the various use cases that it supports to make your Android deployments even more successful.
