First released in September 2008, Google’s Android has quickly established itself as a dominant mobile operating system. But the open attributes that have made Android so popular in the consumer space introduce challenges that have slowed widespread Android adoption in the enterprise. For example, each device manufacturer provides unique personal information management (PIM) applications with varying degrees of enterprise functionality. Enterprise IT must manage and secure email, calendaring, contacts, and task management on multiple devices across many Android variations and this complexity presents a significant barrier to adoption.
Whether the device is corporate-owned or part of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, MobileIron for Android enables the IT administrator to set and manage corporate application and data policies while providing the ability to perform selective or complete wipes of the device. However, IT has no access to the end-user’s personal applications and data that resides on the same device – the end-users’ business and personal environments are completely isolated. Mobile security is provided at the application layer using MobileIron AppConnect technology. The result is a consistent and secure native experience for the end-user and IT across Android devices and operating system versions.

AppConnect for Android
MobileIron's secure AppConnect framework enables customers to derive additional value from Android apps created by application vendors or internally, using our AppConnect application wrappers to leverage our application security services.
