Google enhances Android Enterprise security for businesses and organisations to keep data risk-free



Android Enterprise serves as the first line of defense for businesses of all kinds, helping to keep enterprise data safe and employee data private.

Android Enterprise provides enterprises and organizations with the multi-layered protection and tools they need to safeguard their workforce through a hardened operating system, tight hardware requirements, security services, and extensive enterprise mobility management (EMM) policy controls.

Even so, Google wanted to put Android Enterprise through its tests. As a result, Google hired NCC Group, an IT security assessment firm, to examine how well Android Enterprise performed in terms of the DoD’s own security configuration criteria.

NCC Group tested Android Enterprise for security breach with a Pixel device

NCC Group tested a Google Pixel device running Android 12 against the Department of Defense’s Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG), which provides standardized guidance for information technology systems across the federal government in the United States. According to the official blog report:

NCC Group discovered no “CAT I” flaws after extensive testing, indicating the most serious security risks, such as the potential to obtain total and instantaneous control over a device.

They discovered two “CAT II” concerns that posed a minimal danger to the device and have now been rectified. After that, they found only three CAT III risks that are not a threat to the device but are only informational.

In short, Android Enterprise performed admirably during testing. That’s great news for all their clients, especially because the DISA STIG is used as a basic configuration for deploying Android smartphones and tablets in both the public and private sectors.
