Tech update 26th September 2022

 

Our whole lives are on our phones. We all use our phones for a lot more than sending messages and making the occasional call.

And maybe that means your staff are often using their personal mobiles to do work tasks.

If their device gets breached, that could put your business’s data at risk.

Google’s addressing this with the new Android 13, which is rolling out right now.

It’s designed to keep your work and personal lives separate. There are many features aimed at keeping business data safe and secure, while also helping your people maintain a good work/life balance.

For example, your team can choose whether to open an app for work or fun.

They might have a training video to watch on YouTube. They can watch it in their work profile without it affecting their personal viewing history.

If the phone’s been supplied by the business, your IT admins will have greater control over restrictions to keep data safe.

They can also monitor security logs for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and passwords. And issue security patches faster than ever.

If you have a Google phone, this update’s already available. Other Android phones should see it in the next few weeks.
