Tech Data Distributes Google's Android Entreprise Essentials

Broadliner Tech Data France has launched Android Enterprise Essentials, a simple and secure management service designed by Google's Android team to easily protect enterprise Android devices (mobiles and tablets) at an affordable price, ideal for small and medium businesses.

"The rise of mobility has had a huge impact on the way we work, giving employees access to the data and applications they need wherever they are. This transformation has brought new threats to the security of devices that can be stolen or lost or exposed to data loss, phishing, viruses, etc.", says Pascal Murciano, president of Tech Data France. "For years, SMBs have had to choose between intensive mobile device management, often too complex for their needs, or no protection at all."

Of the 250M+ Android devices sold to businesses worldwide each year, 85% are not managed by an EMM (Mobile Device Management).

To address the needs of SMBs in particular, Google's Android team is launching Android Enterprise Essentials: a simple and secure management service that makes it easy to protect business devices and data at an affordable price.

Essentials offers the best features:

  • always-on protection against malware

  • simplified viewing and management of devices via a central portal,

  • automatic configuration for immediate use

  • automatic application of screen locks,

  • in the event of an incident: remote wiping of lost or stolen devices and change of PIN code

Essentials is available to Tech data customers who have signed a partnership agreement, directly on Intouch.
