Inside IT: Android Devices in the BYOD Environment
IT Best Practices: Episode 60 – We’ve talked about Intel’s Bring Your Own Device program in previous podcasts. Intel enables employees to use their own smart phones, tablets, and other devices for work. Of those, about half – 20,000 in all – run the Android operating system. One of IT’s challenges in supporting the open-source Android OS in particular is the number of variations in the market. In this podcast we hear from Rob Evered of Intel’s Information Risk and Security Group. He discusses the management and security challenges that are part of supporting the Android OS in the current enterprise environment.
