Google introduces new Android device management features for BYOD crowd

google_admin

Google this week announced new features for Google Apps for Business, Government, and Education which provide admins with additional tools in the “bring your own device” (BYOD) environment. Available immediately, these features are some of the most top requested items from customers.

  • Selective wipe – Remove Google Apps account data without wiping a user’s entire device.
  • SD card wipe – During a full device wipe, wipe SD cards in addition to the internal memory.
  • Device Policy app – Ensure that security policies are enforced across all devices by requiring the latest version of the Device Policy app.
  • Wi-Fi configuration – Enter wi-fi settings in the Admin console once — and they’ll be automatically pushed out to all managed Android devices.

As a reminder, Google recently introduced a new Admin app for Android which also helps keep things moving along quickly and efficiently. No longer tied to the desktop or web experience, admins can make changes, reset passwords, and other settings from Android devices.
