Google Partners with 8 Carriers To Android For Work

Google’s Android for Work program makes it easier for businesses to allow their employees to safely use their Android phones for both work and personal use. It gives IT the ability to manage work apps, which are siloed from the rest of the phone, and employees can still put their own private data on the device, which in turn is shielded from IT. When Google launched this program earlier this year, it had already signed up a wide range of partners to help bring Android for Work to market. It’s now expanding this program by adding a new device manufacturer and for the first time carriers to its partner ecosystem. The new carriers, which will now offer support for Android for Work to their business customers are AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, Rogers, Bell Canada, Telus Mobility and KT.

Google has added Silent Circle  the makers of the security and privacy focused Blackphone to its list of partners. It joins Samsung and that company’s KNOX platform in its list of Android for Work devices that can be used in regulated industries like government and healthcare.
