Google’s Android for Work app brings business users enterprise-grade data security on older devices ...

Google has launched its Android for Work App to allow business users to securely access their contacts, email, calendar and files in a managed IT environment, on devices running Android 4.0 or newer.

Launched in February, Google’s Android for Work program allows companies’ IT administration to enable and manage access to work-related data and approved apps on users’ personal Android devices. It also keeps users’ personal and business data separate, and encrypts the latter for increased security.
