Unsecured Androids are a major source of data insecurity for the increasingly mobile workforce, with a mix of corporate-owned and employee-owned devices. According to SophosLabs, Android is the fastest growing attack surface with an 1,800% increase in Android malware over the past two years.

To keep your business data safe, your Androids need better protection, and that’s where Sophos steps in.

Comprehensive Android protection

Sophos Cloud now features Android support, delivering one central and hosted console for managing both desktops and mobile devices. With a simpler user-centric approach, it helps keep corporate information safe with mobility management features like remote lock, remote wipe, password reset, theft protection, Wi-Fi configuration and Microsoft Exchange setup help.

Sophos Mobile Security (available as a subscription for businesses in our Sophos Mobile Control) brings a powerful new antivirus engine and web protection technology to the Android platform.

Without reducing device performance or diminishing battery life, this powerful engine provides comprehensive malware protection. In fact, Sophos received a perfect 100% Android malware detection rate in the latest AV-Test.
